It's all about "Hats" this week at Sassy Cheryl's!!

Happy Tuesday, my lovelies!! It's time for another fun challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog!! And  I have a "holly jolly" card to share with you! hehe!! Our very talented DT sister, Miz Jackie, is our "hostess with the mostess" this week . . . and she'd like to see lots and lots of  . . .

"Hats!"

That's right . . . hats!! Well . . . as luck would have it, so many of my fave Sassy Cheryl images are wearing hats!! My bigger challenge was to decide which one/ones to use for this week's project!! So, here's my card . . . what'cha think?

Once again, I've used my fave Maddie and Max! This image is called "Good Company" and you can find it right HERE in Sassy Cheryl's online store! Here's another angle . . . 

So . . . here's the deal . . . I decided that Maddie would be reading a Christmas book to Max . . . while Max sits back with his feet up, sipping on a hot cocoa . . . with those teensy weensy marshmallows!! Here's a peek from the other side . . . 
 My Card "recipe" . . .
Image printed on Cryogen Metallic White cardstock
Very Vanilla cardstock & seam binding: Stampin' Up
DPs: "City Sidewalks" by Pink Paislee
Corner die & flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Aged Ivory Frantage (on metal corner)

Inside sentiment: Computer generated
Gold baubles & lace: My stash

Now . . . . I must give full credit for this fabulous "Pocket Card" design to my sweet and very talented friend, Dena. She created an incredible pocket card using this design and, as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to "borrow" the concept!! You can see Dena's stunning card HERE. Thanks Dena . . . you ROCK!! And here's my card "in action" so to speak . . . 

Cool, huh? And here's a look with the inside card completely removed . . . 

And, last but not least, the "artsy fartsy" angle . . .
So . . . that's my Christmas Card #2 for 2013! I'm on a roll!! LOL!! Okey dokey . . . don't forget to pop on over to Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog and take a peek at what Miz Jackie and the rest of Sassy Cheryl's talented DT ladies have created for inspiration! Then I hope you'll join us for this week's fun challenge! We always have such fun . . . and, who knows, you may win 2 free Sassy Cheryl digis!! Wheet whoo!!

You are such a brilliant colorist. Until I visited your blog, I had no idea that this card moves and presents itself this way. So special!
