Warm Winter Wishes - Taylored Expressions

Hi All & A Very Happy Saturday to you!  Hope you've all been having a Wonderful weekend so far. And hope you are all set & ready for the Upcoming Holidays!! Can't believe Christmas is just a few days away!! 8-) I am pretty much done with all the preparations, except for my baking, which I'll be doing this coming Sunday.. I like everything to be as Fresh as possible, but I hate getting stressed out at the last minute too, so my happy medium is to dedicate a day to baking two-three days before Christmas instead... 8-)  Well, today I'm back to share my final Christmas Card of the year! Whoo Hoo! I had really planned on creating a bunch more, but just plumb pooped out and ran out of time, lol ;-)  That's okay, I've already got my "Christmas Projects To Do list" started for 2013, lol...So I will get to them all, eventually.. 8-) 
I actually made up a few of these little cuties, but this is the one I liked the best... I Stamped my Super Cute The Cool Crowd Snowmen with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Choice Snow White, colored them up with my trusty Copics & did a little shading with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I cut them out and scored the edges with the help of my Score Pal for a nice clean look, and popped them up with a bit of foam tape.  My mats and BG layers were created with Kraft CS, my Sizzix Snowflake EF and some Festive dp's from Echo Park's This & That Christmas 6x6 collection. To finish it all up I stamped my Cool Crowd Sentiment, added a couple Make a Snowflake Die cuts topped with a button and a bit of Doodle Twine, added a little Liquid Applique, a few gems and a touch of Stardust Stickles for a little sparkle too! 8-)

Here are the items I used for my project today...


Wishing you all a Very Merry & Blessed Christmas! And thanks so much for dropping by! 8-)

  18. Happy and fun! Love the sweet and simple sketch. I made chunky peanut butter fudge on Christmas Eve day, but that's all this year. If I have it I'll eat it, tsk, tsk. I hope you had a very merry Christmas!
