It's Saturday and I have two of my favorite pastimes planned, stamping and watching baseball. Of course, I have to do some chores also, but the laundry can go while I'm doing the fun things.
What will I be working on? Well, once a month, a few of my crafty friends and I get together on a Sunday afternoon and craft. (I think I've mentioned this group in a previous post) Tomorrow is this month's get together. Sometimes, I will plan one or two "make and takes" for the gals, and while I didn't plan anything for tomorrow, I just may surprise them. Also, this will be the last time our youngest crafter is with us, for quite awhile at least, as she is on her way to college in Edinburgh, Scotland. So, my first stamping priority today will be to make a "bon voyage" card for her.
For today's post, I have a fun, cheery card that I made last evening for Taylor's Friday sketch challenge, TESC 124. This is not a size that I make often, so it was fun to do something a little different. The cups of hot cocoa are paper pieced, the cocoa is expresso dimensional pearls and the whipped cream is liquid applique. A few randomly placed rhinestones and crinkled ribbon finish off the cheery look.
