White Christmas

Hi friends!  It's Friday and time for another Viva la Verve! sketch.  This week's sketch is from Anya, and is a super fun one.  I pulled out the new Holiday Treats set and got stampy!

For some reason, I've been really drawn to white lately.  Then every time I go to photograph my card I wonder why on earth I keep making white cards!  They're so hard to photograph, especially in the dark of night after the kiddos are finally asleep.  LOL  So you can see a hint of the snowflake embossing on the white base layer, but not the full effect of it's texture and general yumminess!

I used the three sizes of snowflakes in Holiday Treats for a little background stamping on the three old olive panels, then embossed the small and medium snowflake in white on cherry cobbler, then punched out with circle punches.  The sentiment is stamped in cherry cobbler and I added the coffee swirl to the m for a little mistletoe like flourish.  The ribbon is from the Red, White and Beautiful Collection and I finished off with some glittery white jingle bells and liquid pearl accents on my snowflakes and scalloped oval.

That's all, folks!  I hope you have a crazy wonderful start to your weekend!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll leave you with a silly pic of my boys "monkeying" around yesterday in their new hats.  A little out of focus because they're rocking in the rocking chair, but I love their little smiles!
