MM263 and FMS311 Christmas Cocoa


Happy Thursday, all!  I just couldn't get through the entire week without making another Christmas card, sorry!  The sketch from FMS just called my name, and the inspiration photo from Merry Monday was too fun to pass up:


I pulled out two retired sets called Scentsational Season and Warmth and Wonder to create this cozy little scenario:


I used papers from KaiserCraft for the background, and SU's Wood Textures for the pinecones, as well as Tranquil Tide (greenery) and Vellum (steam) cardstocks:


I love the effect of white embossing on the vellum...I can almost smell that hot cocoa!  Another Christmas card for my stash!

Well, this is the only picture Cassidy would let me take of her Halloween costume:


The elusive JoJo girl!  Oh, she did let me take one of her flashing zip-up sneakers!  Can you see the lights?!  LOL!


Enjoy your day and be sure to come back tomorrow for a new As You See It challenge!  Be blessed!

Love the outfit/shoes. Much better than the saddle back shoes from the 50's

I love that little mug. I wish I would have bought it! The design of this card is really festive. BTW, the sneakers - I bought my Grandaughter the same pair a few years ago and now her little sister (granddaughter#2) is wearing them.
