Warm Winter Wishes

Hello and happy(?) Monday, crafty peeps!
I got into the Christmas (in July) spirit this weekend and
cranked out several cards to add to my severely depleted stash.
Here's one of them:

and the inside:

The stamps are from the same set by Bo Bunny (2013). All the papers are
at least 5 years old. (Shopping my stash for this one!) I used these super
cute teapot and mug dies from Paper Smooches as my warm beverages.
I forgot I had these. It's amazing what one finds when one actually looks
at what she has accrued over the years. (*cough*)

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!

  1. I think we're all a little shocked by just how muh we've accrued during our crafting lives, Chris! I know I am. Your card is all kinds of gorgeous. I love the papers and colours and am positively swooning over the tea pot and mugs. It's all beautiful. Thanks for playing along with myself and Monika at The Christmas Kickstart Challenge, Jo x

  2. Hi there Chris: We all suffer from the same ailment, sometimes, when I'm looking for a particular stamp and I'm going through the file box looking for it, I find myself totally amazed at the sheer amount of stamp sets I have and thinking that even if I crank up a card a day using each image on them, I will not be able to use them all, sheeesh!!
    The only solution is NOT to buy anymore but that is easier said than done.
    Anywho my friend, your card is darling, love the teapot, cup and mug in that warm color, and your layout with those beautiful pattern papers is lovely.
    Thank you for playing along with us at RETRO RUBBER, I hope you play again next time.

  3. Great card and I wish I could find my motivation to make Christmas cards right now! I know what you mean about finding 'new' goodies in your stash! We moved a few years ago and I'm still discovering treasures!

  4. Chris I absolutley love the teapot and mug/cup dies that you have used. I am glad that you liked the sketch and had a play along with it. Hope to see you around the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge blog again.

  5. I think we are all guilty of a 'surprise' find - I love that though, it's so fun when you find something that is just perfect for what you are working on. This is a fun Christmas card, I think you need a bunch of these. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber. Claire DT

  6. Great use of our sketch, conjuring up images of cosy fires and warm drinks. Love those papers and great that you are using them. Thanks for joining in at 52CCT. x

  7. What a sweet little Christmas card...your little teapot and cups are adorable in that plaid/print and I love this color combo! That sentiment on the inside is as cute as can be! Happy you played with the Retro Rubber challenge this week, it's a cutie!

  8. Wauu, beutiful card. Ilove Christmas tea too.
    Thank you for joining us at 52CCT. Goga
