frosty greetings...



Okay, you gotta admit that the Hero Arts Christmas Japanese Dolls are super cute...they make me smile :)

I teamed up Laura's sketch 35 with the darling Hero Arts image. The green patterned papers are older American Crafts and the pink text is vintage KI memories. The sentiment is ala A Muse. The preppy ribbon is from the M's $ bin years ago :)

I paper pieced the Japanese Doll with the American Crafts paper and some scraps from my Carolyn Gavin pad.

I love to use non-traditional colors for holiday cards....

Anything big planned for the weekend? I have a couple soccer games...one of them being in the early evening in the city that has a Fair going on...oy...that's going to be fun getting to. On a crafty side note, I'll have a house guest for the evening...I'm really looking forward to having her over...I gotta madly clean up my crafty area {oh yeah, and the rest of the house but really it is the crafty area that is much more important!}.

Come on back tomorrow for 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday!!!

    This weekend I am working at the LSS for today and then I have plans to sit in my craftroom the rest of the weekend and work on Cards for a class or two I am teaching next month.

    Enjoy time with your crafty visitor and good luck on those soccer games.
