Dear Santa...

Coffee of the Day - Eggnog

One of my most important card commissions came along a few weeks ago - one from my youngest son for 'someone' details other than it had to be cute and explosive. okay, suuuuuuuure..... I can do that. ??? no pressure on Mom to create fabulous for you. ;)

I sent him links to multiple images and then sentiments to be sure it was all as he wanted. then came time to put it all together. I was sweating bullets! worst part of all was that in the midst of this his phone died, so that we ended up doing all of our communication through Facebook chats.

card was finally finished and then express mailed to him. given to recipient, and a few days later he had a relationship status change on FB. whew....... I think she liked the card! :)

and now I can safely post it here.....

image is a cutey by Saturated Canary, called Molly the Elf,  sentiment is from a set by Create with TLC. red bg paper is Evergreen by Basic Grey, gold polka dot is actually part of a note card I picked up from Target, as are the fun matching paper tags along the side. red satin ribbon is May Arts, poinsettias are from Hobby Lobby, main image die is Spellbinders, clear flourish die is Sizzix (cut from re-purposed clear packaging), and other items are from my stash. stickles was used on main image for some added bling and sparkle.

hope you have a great week as you get ready for Christmas! remember to take some time for yourself a midst the hustle and bustle......
