Challenge 98 - My first DT project for Aud Sentiments

A new day and finally I can share the news that I have a position on the DT at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog. We are having a heat wave here in Adelaide and we are all sweltering away. A bit different to some of the places in the world where they are coping with extreme cold. I hope whatever the weather you are experiencing you are coping okay!!! I had the 3 grandchildren here yesterdat and they  stayed overnight, so was a bit snug in the bed in this heat. We only have the fan to alleviate the heat.We ended up sleeping with our heads at the base of the bed to get as much cool air as possible. We've woken up to another scorcher, so the air con is already on.
Well enough talk about hot weather and on to the challenge at Aud Sentiments. This week you can use any sentiment you would like. Easy, right!!!
Our sponsor is Inky Impressions and I got to use this sweet image so therefore I made a Christmas card. The first one for 2014!!!
 Here is my first card for the DT........

For this challenge we are so excited to have Inky Impressions as our sponsor. They are giving the winner  $10 Gift Certificate to Inky Impressions Rubber Stamps.  Thanks so much!
Here is a little bit about them...
We are a young Rubber Stamp Company that offers some of the cutest children & animal stamps on the market today! Each and every stamp made is “Extra Deep Etched” on Quality Red Rubber for a crisp impression everytime! All our stamps are made right here in the USA!
All Inky Impressions Rubber Stamps are sold with EZ Mount just waiting to get inked! The characters LiLi, Angelica, Nicholas & Christopher are cartoon versions of our children. LiLi is a nickname for our youngest daughter MarLeigha. We truly hope that you love our stamps just as much as we have loved designing them.
I am a stay at home mommy and wife to a very loving and supportive man. Without the support of my family and friends, my dream would not have been possible. This has been a long time coming and finally…I am ADRIFT on a DREAM!
I can’t even begin to express how excited I am to share my dream with you. We are devoted to you, our customers, so please feel free to share your artwork that is made with our stamps, or to just drop us a line to say hello!
There are several new members on the DT as well as some of the old team too, so we would love to see you popping in and leaving a comment to welcome everyone.
