Ahhh... Holidays!

I am loving being on Christmas holidays with my family.  Today started with a 7am hockey game for my youngest and an 8am game for my oldest.  This was followed by two more hours of skating with the Fire Department's kids Christmas party.  We came home for a couple of hours and then both boys were off to a birthday party.  I don't even know how they were still walking by bedtime tonight.  In the few hours that we were home this afternoon, I snuck down to my room to create this card for their friend's birthday.  This is one of the gorgeous new sets from the upcoming Occasions Mini.  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to get me started... great layout!

It is so hard to show in the pictures, but I coloured the icing, cherry and real red border with my versamark pen, added some irridescent ice and heat set it... it was the perfect touch!
