Holiday Hugs

Funny story.. A good friend who will remain nameless, accidentally bought 2 of this, oh so cute, Stamping Bella so she gave me this one.

It's been awhile so I decided to get back up on that proverbial horse and make a card. This cute stamp kind of did the trick for me.

Too make it even more interesting, I checked out one of my favorite challenge blogs, Double "D" Challenges and by adding some bling to the background and dotting the "i" with a red gem, I am able to enter this weeks challenge Pearls, Gems or Rhinestones

Pearls, Gems or Rhinestones

I even finished off the inside and decorated the envelope. (Patting myself on the back right now!)

  4. I'm with Sherri -- miss you a lot! Just look at all the beautiful detail and coloring in this. Lucky you to receive the spare. This is one of my fave snowmen stamps and you make me want to color it again. I think it does a good job of capturing the spirit of Christmas. I'm so glad you shared in our Double D challenge and sorry it took a while for me to get here and comment. We've been away on a lengthy trip. So good to see you, Gail!
