I've been feeling a bit under the weather for the past few weeks.....and Mojo has taken a vacation.  But as I was cleaning my craft room I found this old MFT stamp that was never used.  I loved it when I bought it.....and still love it now.  

I colored this with my Prisma watercolor pencils.  The paper is DoodleBugs new Cream & Sugar.  A great get well card for a dear friend.

My BFF's birthday is coming up and I actually finished her card ahead of schedule.  Even the matchng envelope is made thats a first for me!

I love this special image by All Dressed Up,  "Butterfly Kisses".  Colored with my Copics,  hard to tell in photo but hat and scarf are shimmery thanks to Wink of Stella in clear.  sequins are from my stash.  Dies and DP are from MFT, along with sentiment.

Our weather in Chicago has finally settled into Winter.  We went from 68 degrees  to 36 degrees  in less then 8 hours and had our first dusting of snow.

I'm not a fan of winter but I do love the holidays, and with Thanksgiving a week away.....that means that Christmas is right around the corner.  

This is such a sweet Christmas angel from, "Aurora Wings"  its called "Star Angel"   I know of the perfect little girl who will be getting this card.

Come join The Holly Jolly Challenge: add Ribbon/Lace, you still have time to create some beautiful Christmas treasures.

Colored with Copics,  MFT oval and stitched rectangle dies to create top layer of card.  I heat embossed stars from SSS with their  rainbow sparkle embossing powder.  I love the tone on tone look with the iridescent sparkle.
