Coffee of the Day - Butterscotch
Happy Saturday to all of you!
It's the last weekend before Christmas.... are you ready? almost? not quite? not even close?
when hubby and I first met back in college, he notoriously saved ALL of his Christmas shopping for Christmas Eve. it was a tradition for the kids in his family. drove me absolute bonkers, but I do confess to the rush of trying to find the perfect gift in what was left in the stores before they closed.... thank goodness we are waaaaaaaaaay past those days now. ;)
I needed a special card to send out to my MIL with her gifts, so of course I turned to Paper Temptress card stocks to get me started. my card base is Desert Storm Kraft (as most of my cards are...). She has a special fondness for cats, so this adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil was perfect for her! :) I added some stickles to their Santa hats.
decorative papers from the Basic Grey Aspen Frost collection, vintage buttons, and a doily sprayed with glimmer mist were added. Tim Holtz holiday script dies were used to cut words from olive Basis cs. I so love this color! ribbon scraps were stapled to the upper right corner and then jingle bells were tied to a bow made from 1/8" red satin ribbon with white polka dots. little rose is by Wild Orchid Crafts.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend! hugs to you all! :)
p.s. some of you have asked for my hot cocoa mix recipe. I'll post it later this weekend.
