MM475 Jar of Cheer

Happy Wednesday, all!  This will be quick, as Thanksgiving eve is upon us and I have a flurry of things to do!  I chose the Mojo Monday sketch for my Christmas card today:

It's kind of sad that I have SO MUCH STUFF that pretty papers like these get forgotten...but then I get happy when I "find" them again!  These are the This Christmas Specialty papers, and they are so pretty with the new Jar of Cheer set:

I stamped the jar in Smoky Slate and everything else in Basic Gray, then used my aquapainter and inks to color in the ornaments and greenery.  It's too bad you cannot see the shimmer from the Wink of Stella looks really pretty IRL!  I added a bow from Jar of Love, stamped in Cherry Cobbler, because I thought it looked better than the striped bow that came with the set.

I stamped a sentiment from Stitched with Cheer, also in Basic Gray, right on the DSP and used a Cherry Cobbler banner to fill in the letters a wee bit:

I usually find coloring in images that large a bit tedious, but it was very relaxing today!  I need relaxing because I will be going full steam ahead today!  Thanks for popping in!

We had some insanely cold temps and 30-40 mph winds the last few patio was covered with leaves because they had blown off the yard onto the patio!  So Cassidy decided to slide down the cellar door into the leaves....silly girl!

This is what is known as "wind-blown" hair!!  Enjoy your day!

Another fabulous Christmas card, LeAnne! Just love this sketch and your pretty jar of Christmas things! Those papers are yummy, aren't they? I love them and your card! I had to laugh when you shared Cassidy's adventure of sliding down the basement one dog loves to slide down our basement doors! Werid thing I guess but it cracks me up! Those winds the last few days were crazy and it sure feels like winter has arrived!! TFS and hope you have a great day! Happy Thanksgiving Eve!! :)

It has been SO windy here along the Lake Michigan shore, LeAnne ... we all may be needing a little slide down the "Dorothy Door" as my daughter calls it!
Wonderful little jar of Christmas cheer!!
