Warmth & Joy

Hola!

Thank you all so much for all of the wonderful birthday wishes yesterday, they were all so much fun to read and put a huge smile on my face! I had a great day, with a nice dinner out and my sis, the baker extraordinaire, made a delicious cake for all to enjoy. Pretty much a perfect birthday in my opinion. :)

I have a quick card for this week's review preview over at ATS and it features the snow miss, Adorn D. Yard. I went with a much cooler color palette for her this time around and even swapped out the usual cranberries on her garland for some blue juniper berries. They may not be as tasty but they do look pretty. ;)
And I'm still doing great with my plan to use up Christmas scraps... every paper on this card came from my pile of bits and pieces. Yeah! I've gotta say that it is a pretty satisfying feeling when I can mix together papers from different companies and lines and have them work this well. It doesn't always happen, LOL!

Ok, time for me to go get busy.
Toodles!
