I hope that everyone celebrating Christmas had a wonderful time yesterday. I enjoyed time spent with the family... it was mellow and relaxing and pretty darn great. As far as gifts go, I got some new TV series on DVD that I'm excited to dive into... Downton Abbey and Mad Men. I'm already LOVING Downton Abbey, we flew through season 1 and have just started season 2. Oh, and I finally made that Christmas Crack that I've been mentioning and I have to say that it was a huge hit! If you are looking for a sweet munchie to make for New Year's I give this recipe two thumbs way up. :)
So today's card is for the Sweet November December release review preview over at ATS. I chose to use one of the Love Bugs from the Love Bug Fun set and did some altering by simply cutting him off the candy heart that he sits on. This was an easy way to change up the look of the stamp and play with a different design for him. After all those Christmas cards these past couple months I couldn't resist pulling out some pretty spring looking papers to use with this li'l love bug... what a fun change of pace that was. It may not be traditional Valentine's colors but I think it works.
Now be sure to skip on over to the ATS blog to see what my fellow teamies have made with the rest of the new December SN stamps.
