Toasty Trevor:

Good morning all - here we are at Monday again.  It always comes so quickly hey?  I had a pretty good weekend, got to visit with friends, do some cards, and I also finished decorating and hanging my 45 inch Christmas wreath.  Now I just have to wait two more weeks to finish my mantel and put up the Christmas tree.  My husband bought me a tree yesterday and it will be almost 10 feet tall!!  Bigger is always better ;)


This is Christmas card #40, which was my goal for next weekend.  It our my very first craft sale and I am not sure why I wanted to be a part of it.  I am dreading every minute of it LOL.

I used this new cutie Trevor, gave him a polka dot hat and a purple sweater.  He looks sweet and toasty!
Project Ingredients:  C.C. Designs stamp, Craftsmart Black ink, MME and DCWV papers, Recollections cardstock,  Prismacolor pencils, Gelly Roll white pen, American Crafts jute, Creatology jingle bells, Creatology star foam sticker.  Tools: sewing machine, blending stumps, mineral spirits.
I made toasty Trevor for the following challenges:  Glitter n Sparkle - lots of layers, Charisma Cardz - cool colours, Cute Card Thursday and Moving Along with the Times - stars, Play Play - paper piecing, Sketch Saturday - sketch:

Have a wonderful Monday!!!

PS:  Am I the only one who can't get my sidebar gadgets to stick??  They only want to stay at the top.  Anyone else having unruly gadgets??

Cute card, Deanne! And when I see the purple accents, I always think of Julia. I hope you'll post pics of your Xmas tree and wreath here, so that I can see them, as I'll be in Wpg. all of Dec. Your craft sale will be a huge success. Please don't fret, but have fun with it.
