Baby, it's FREEZING outside!

Brrrrr!  It was a cool 20 degrees when I took Zach to work this morning at oh-dark-thirty.  Whew!  I need to go buy long johns I guess.

I thought this card would be perfect for today's share.  I think that the "Hug in a Mug" stamp set was a "sleeper" in this year's Holiday catalog.  It is absolutely stinkin' cute and needs to be shared.

Look at these adorable images.  I have been having a blast building all sorts of mugs with it.

I'm planning to use it for my winter birthday cards too.  How fun is THAT??
Remember, a lot of products from the Holiday catalog will be retiring on January 2nd.  Make sure you get all of your "must haves" before they're gone.

Here's my supply list for this sweet "Hug in a Mug" card.  You can find everything you need at my Online Store.  Just CLICK HERE.

I hope wherever you are that you are warm and toasty.

Stampin' Hugs,
Michelle

Christmas Happiness


It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas outside but it's cozy here in the studio today.  I've been working on cards for some very special people and I thought I'd share one of the designs with you today.

I can't even tell you how much I LOVE the Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Ugh!  It's it GORGEOUS!  It's the perfect background for this card.  Don't you think?

The supplies I used are listed below.  Remember, if there are any of the supplies you'd like to purchase, just click  go right to my Online Store by CLICKING HERE. 

OOPS...I forgot to  mention that the ribbon on the original card happens to be retired.  I substituted a gorgeous alternative though that you'll love.
It's in the supply list. 

What are you working on for the holiday?  I'd love to see!

Wishing you a magical day,
Michelle
