Snowball Jake:


Good morning friends!  May I mention that is one of my favourite days of the week - FRIDAY!!!  AND...  I haven't felt better in months, my back and shoulders are finally doing pretty good and my wrist is almost 100%!!  Now if only I could get rid of this nasty, nasty chest cold I would be dancing.  I will pick my battles and I will consider myself lucky that all I have is a cold :)

So with all that *dancing* and *waving my arms around in the air* out of the way, I've also had a chance to get back on schedule for Christmas cards.  

I one of my favourites, Teddy Jake, and wrapped him up in a cozy scarf:

What are my three favorite products?
1.  Prismacolor Pencils
2. Mulberry paper flowers
3.  my sewing machine

If you've seen my work, you know that I used these three items on practically every card I make.

Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi and sentiment, MME papers, American Crafts and Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, Wild Orchard flowers, Craftsmart Chocolate and Gold inks, Gelly Roll white pen, cheese cloth, random button.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, sewing machine, Rectangle and Circle Nesties.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Christmas Challenges w Sketches - sketch (do not display sketch), CSAYL - 3 favourite products (see above), Holly Jolly - Christmas music, Forever Friends - paper piecing.

 AND...  please meet StampFairy's newest member, Mimi April Showers:


Have a super wonderful weekend!
