Sketch it with Eight

After working on a flurry of Design Team creations last week - I'm finally able to do some 'just because I want to' stamping for a couple of my favorite challenges! I make Hanukkah cards for the doctors I work for each year and this set called 8 Happy Nights by Cas-ual Fridays Stamps is just perfect for this holiday!
Cas-ual Fridays challenge - Create with 8
and just for good measure - here's another card I made using the same stamp set - I drew a frame around the edge using a silver pen.
 Well - I have to go check the pumpkin pie I'm baking for Thanksgiving -  we're all snuggled down in our house tonight - the wind is howling and it's about 22 degrees F.   We MAY get a little snow Wednesday night - hopefully nothing that will interfere with us driving to my sister's house on Thursday (1 hour away) for Thanksgiving dinner!
