Warmest Wishes from Cocoa

Yesterday was my first post on the August Guest Design Diva team on the Sweet 'n Sassy digi blog. I took the opportunity to make another Christmas card.

Sweet 'n Sassy has a Cocoa image for almost every occasion. For my card, I used Cocoa's Mittens which was the very first digi I ever purchased from Sweet 'n Sassy back when I was just getting into digis. He was so cute I just couldn't resist.

Did you know that you could have the chance to be in the spot light on the Sweet 'n Sassy digi blog? Every Sunday, they choose a customer creation to spotlight. Check the Sweet 'n Sassy digi blog to see how you can enter for your chance to be chosen to be in the spotlight.

Thank you for looking.

  • Images: Cocoa's Mittens by Sweet 'N Sassy, sentiment from Holiday Treats by PaperTrey
  • Papers & CS: Georgia Pacific white CS, Close To My Heart Jingle DP & Juniper CS
  • Inks: Close To My Heart Tulip ink
  • Tools: Copic & Prismacolor markers, My Favorite Things large scallop die, Sizzix label die, Big Shot
  • Embellishments: Close To My Heart white organza ribbon, Stampin' Up silver cord, Sakura Gelly Roll clear glitter pen, misc. dew drops

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
