season's greetings...

Hello!!!

Lotsa stuff to share today so let's get started!






Such a fun color challenge and I was able to use the Retro Christmas Stickerz:


The carrot color kind of threw me but check it out...I used Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie and Cornish Heritage Farm polka dots!

I was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch:

I wanted to squeeze in my November Mitten Weather Project-A-Day:)


Can I tell you that this purple is starting to grow on me?  I went with the monochromatic look...all the paper is Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather...I was able to find some purple buttons, the twine is hijacked from some tags and the sentiment is A Muse...of course I did multiple stitchings and oy, I really distressed this puppy...it really shows in the pic:)

I was inspired by the latest CardPatterns sketch:


and The Shabby Tea Room inspiration photo:


Okie Dokie peeps...that's it for me today:)
