you warm my heart

I wanted to play with my Die-namics Snowflake Fusion Cover-up:

cardstock:  papertrey ink kraft/vellum, mft steel grey, stampin' up cherry cobbler  stamps:  mft/perk up  ink:  zing/white  other:  mft snowflake fusion cover-up, gold thread
I'm still smitten with this color combo:
PTI Kraft
MFT Steel Grey
SU Cherry Cobbler
I also used a PTI vellum strip and gold stitching.
The sentiment is from the MFT Perk Up set.
I was inspired by the MFT sketch:

I wanted to share a quick photo I took of my son's 12 days of Christmas:
 I used THESE printables.   I kept them super simple and tied them together by using the Studio Calico Wonderland collection and doilies.  I used bigger bags for this set and stitched down the panel, a good way to keep everything neat & tidy and quite frankly, there is no peeking.


  1. Love the twelve days of Christmas. I love the colors on your card too...the touch of texture on the blue is gorgeous.

  2. Gorgeous card and I love the little advent envelopes/bags you created.

  3. Such a great color combo and such a pretty card, Amy! Your son is going to love going through the little bags (although personally I wouldn't want to open them because they're too pretty, LOL!) :)

  16. is this the COOLEST XMAS COUNTDOWN ever in the whole history of the world??!?! ok, yepper, i think it might be! love that the stitching makes them more beautiful AND tamper-proof. that's the sort of thing ppl like me need in a sequential treat sequence. some of us are just NOT trustworthy in that way, lol. :)
