Cold and Cuddly Birthday

Hello all, I'm still around, just becoming a bit consumed with the whole holiday season. I love this time of the year. We have our tree up, we've been to a couple Christmas gatherings, tonight we are even going caroling, which I haven't done in years! I'm so excited. Only if we could have a bit of snow...but I will have to just dream of a White Christmas instead. I love that movie. And now that I'm almost done with my Christmas cards, I'll be able to sit down and watch it along with a bunch of others that I've been wanting to see.


Today is my favorite sister's birthday (Happy Birthday!!)....yup, you guessed it, I have just the one. However, I do have a couple great sister-in-laws :). It's not snowing in Maine today, but they do have snow, and with a winter birthday, I thought I would have fun with this set. I hope she likes it. Her favorite color is purple, so I try to use it in her birthday cards, this year was Almost Amethyst, since it reminds me of a cold snowy color.

On SCS I saw a couple cards with stacked penguins and I thought it was just too cute, so here they are. There are four of us in our family, so we are all sending her celebrations on her birthday!!

I used last years Felt Flurries and added a bit of glitter to the snow. I just hope it doesn't melt too much, or these guys will all tumble down.

Set: Cold & Cuddly, Wonderful Words
Accessories: Almost Amethyst Ink and Paper, Whisper White cardstock, StazOn Black in, Markers, Felt Flurry, Sticker Dots, Eyelet Edge Punch

I don't know about you all....but I like to settle down and enjoy the holidays as much as I can. I've been baking, card making and running around, so I've put my Etsy store on Vacation mode so I won't have to run to the post office after I mail my cards....I've just about finished shopping, so I will be making some hot cocoa, getting the wrapping paper out and putting on one of my many movies to enjoy.

Merry Christmas everyone. Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
