Cold & Cuddly

Morning stampers...it feels a little chilly in here, doesn't it? Well, it isn't really chilly here but I just had to use the super cute Cold & Cuddly set that is new in the SU! Holiday Mini.

So? Another super cute image, huh? I think the set matches perfectly with the Holiday Lounge designer series paper pack from the Idea Book & Catalog. Both are kinda retro. The colors on this card are Ruby Red, Taken with Teal, and Sahara Sand. I did use a sketch challenge on this card. Have you seen the blog called The Sweetest Thing? Well, Karen is so talented and has great sketch challenges. You can see this one HERE. Karen also makes some lovely watermarks that are very reasonably priced!

Anyway, this is my first holiday card of the year and I'm glad I'm finally getting started because last year we only got cards out to close family members and those that sent to us. This was a fun and easy card so I think I'll be encouraged to make more.

You all know Monday's are busy for me so I should probably run but one little tease...only three more days 'til my announcement! Yay! I'm SO excited!
