So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Warm Winter Wishes

This is for the Speedy the Cat's Challenge Week 84 -- using your favorite embellishments! One of my favorite things to use!(here is the website)

I used the MFP Snowball Mini set. I stamped him with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored him with Smooch, added some Polar Fleece FlowerSoft for his hat and cuffs,his beard and eyebrows. I also used some Copic markers for his skin. It was stamped on white cs from MFP and I also used Paper Studio I Believe dp. I cut the oval with Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals and after cutting out Mr. Snowball Santa I popped him on the inside of the card and he comes up through the front! Added some bling -- my favorite embellishments...some holly brads from Spare Parts, some ribbon, some reindeer buttons, green and red bling. I then punched a hole for a red/white cord and fastened it with a Candi dot to keep it secure. That way the card will stay shut.

And he is sending you Warm Winter Wishes for a Merry Christmas!
