Hi everyone, 

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As I am the challenge hostess for the month I continue to issue the challenges.

Apparent tomorrow (15th January) is Hat Day. So for our challenge this week we have to include a hat on our card creations.

I have a few new stamp sets that I got either before Christmas or for Christmas presents which I want to start using so when I went looking through my stash I found this cutie from Stamping Bella. That cute cat is wearing a hat and I always need birthday cards!

I decided to create a Side Step card using the Tattered Lace Side Stepper Card die I got earlier last year.

For the inside I stamped a sentiment and there is plenty of room to handwrite a greeting if I want to.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

Dies: Side Stepper Card - Tattered Lace; Fitted Circles; Stitched Circles; Alphabet 1 Caps; Numbers & More 1 - Elizabeth Craft Designs

What a delightful creation...that little kitty sporting his crown is spot on.

Birthdays do have a way of making you feel like you are queen or king for the day!! A fabulous card, as always and great colors and papers.

Cute card, Frances! I never think to put a sentiment on the underside of a side-step card. Thanks for reminding me!
