SIP72 Foxy Christmas

Hello peeps!  What a busy Tuesday it is!  Two posts in one day again!  If you'd like to check out my TSOT post, it's HERE.  Hopefully things will get back to normal soon!  I was thrilled to be asked by Justin at Stamp Ink Paper to be a guest designer for November!  I just love their challenges!  The first week is always a sketch..and what a nice one it is:

My Foxy Friends set was sadly neglected, so I pulled it out, along with some Presents and Pinecones DSP and went to work:

Now, we all know that foxes are never Mint Macaron in real life, but doesn't this little fellow look cute stamped in this shade? I added some Emerald Envy eyes and legs, a little Cherry Cobbler bow, and a sentiment from the retired set Merry Crittermas:

I added a strip of the opposite side of the pine DSP along the left side, along with a little stitched strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock!  It adds such a nice contrast!  And I diecut the squares with the Layering Squares dies too!

I hope that you'll play along with the SIP sketch this week!  There are so many great possibilities with this sketch!

Last week, Cassidy brought home a Traveling Panda!  Each week, a student takes the panda home and writes about their "adventures" in a journal.  The following week it goes back to school and goes home with the next student!  Cassidy named her panda Mandy!  We had such a busy week, we didn't do too much with her but I do have a few pix to share!  Cassidy loves to write, so it was a good experience for her!  And Mandy is also wearing a sweater that I knitted for another doll, which makes me feel good!

Enjoy your day!

I have not liked that stamp set until is so cute and I prefer the fox in the colors you chose. Cassidy's panda is cute too!

Oh I am loving this card! That fox is adorable used for Christmas and I am starting to love that DSP! I think I really need to order it! LOL Enjoyed the picture of Cassidy & Mandy! It brought back a memory for me to when Kelsey was little. Each student was about to bring home a stuffed penguin for a week then tell the class the what they did with it. I think this may have been preschool but it was so fun and since then she has had a love for penguins! TFS your adorable card today & this wonderful memory! Happy November 1st! :)
