Have a Cozy Christmas!

Hello to my Blog Land friends!  Hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend.  Mine is just starting, a glorious 3 whole days off, hunkering down with the family and enjoying quality time at home :)  Absolutely, positively, nothing better :)

So finally, I've started to break out of my crafty rut and made this card for Lily Pad's monthly sketch challenge from Nina B Designs.  Used some of my FAVORITE new stamps from Lawn Fawn!  Of all the stamps I've tried, Lawn Fawn has the crispest (is that a word??) images EVER!

Did some paper piecing for the little flame, Distress Ink for the fireplace, Copic markers and Glossy Accents for the adorable little lights, and Snow-Tex to make the snow on the mantle :)  The paper is from October Afternoon's 5 & Dime collection.

And here's the sketch:

If you get a chance, stop over to the Lily Pad and check out the challenge!  I'm off to my scrap room to make more, hope the motivation lasts!  See you soon ;)


  1. Super cute! I love that ribbon trim, the snow is a great effect, and your coloring is gorgeous!

  2. What an absolutely charming card! I love all of your special finishing touches like the sentiment stamped across the top and the shiny Christmas lights...Love it all! Thanks for joining in the sketch challenge at Lily Pad Cards!
