Hot Cider/Chocolate, Anyone?

Let's Get Punchin'...that is the challenge this week at the Stampin B's Design Team. We are to use at least two border punches. I used the Martha Stewart pine needles and the MS holly edge punch. My image is from Mark's Finest Papers, Snowman Country. I stamped it twice and cut out and popped up all but the handle. Added my sentiment from the same set. I colored with Copics and added stickles.

A short week stamping for me. I'm going away for a long weekend so this will probably be my last post this week. See you all when I return.

Benzi how great you are getting to go away. We went to Las Vegas last weekend for my daughter's 21st birthday (sorry I did't tell a lot of people because we were kind of up in the air about going even 'til the last minute). I love this card - you know how I love snowmen! I think I am going to go have some hot chocolate right now. Thanks for commenting on my blog - I was nervous about it!

Benzi I am so glad you could join us this week. I love that holly berry border punch. You sent me some strips of that last year for my Birthday and I coveted it for some time before I used it on a card. I just love it. Super cute card my friend. Thank you so much for playing along with Speedy the Cat's Friends punch challenge. It is a pleasure to visit to see what you created for us. Good luck in the drawing and hope to see you next week.

Bear Hugs,
Carol
