The more the merrier


The other day, I met up with my friend Katie (& her sweet girl) at Impress.  We scored since they were having 40% off their Christmas inventory.  I picked up the cute Poppystamps Wintertime Bears set:


Chuckling...how can you stop at just one coffee?! The More the Merrier!  I did a quick watercoloring with my zigs...I like the messy look...and that bear is a mess!  I used the Memory Box Large Coffee On The Go.

I picked up a bunch of those gold glitter American Crafts card bases at J's awhile ago.  I actually cut them in half and adhere them to the top of a white cardbase, more bang for my buck that way (wink).

The polka dot panel?  It's one of our favorite Christmas wrapping papers that we picked up at Target.  Did you see Jingle Belles' first challenge of 2017?  It's: 

No Time Like the *Presents*

we'd like to see holiday cards that include the image of an actual present... OR which include some upcycled giftwrap that you've used in place of (or in addition to) patterned paper.


I'm also playing along with the Poppy Challenge:  Silent Snowflakes:


Did you notice the Cosmo Cricket - Pixie Paint in Candy?  It highlights the snowflake background which is a retired MFT Cover-Up that I used an embossing pad with in my cuttlebug.

Well, today is back to work for me.  I've had a glorious holiday and ate way too much!  Here's a peek at my New Years Day celebration:
