Keeping Warm :)

Hi! I know I'm WAY later than I try to be, but believe it or not, I'm STILL not finished Christmas shopping. I only have a couple things to get, but .......insert lots of whining here :)

I'd rather be like Mudpie Mouse here in this cup of coffee :)

These stamps are so cute and really versatile too. For this card I started with a Bazzill base and added some Bazzill bling and October Afternoon paper (Daydream: Patio Umbrella) - guess where you can get them :) I stamped the image onto white cardstock and then onto the flowered side of the patterned paper. I also stamped another image on white cardstock. I paper pieced the coffee cup onto the image stamped on white. Then on the other image stamped on white, I colored with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, then I cut Mudpie Mouse out and pop-dotted him onto the original image. I added some glitter to the steam, but you can't see it from my picture. The ribbon I used is pink sheer twinkle ribbon and is very dainty, but sparkly. I cut the blue flower in the corner from the patterned paper and then added a Fresh Mowed Grass dew drop to it. I think that's it. I'm having fun with these little guys, that's for certain.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful holiday filled with peace, joy and happiness.
