Merry, merry...

Hello again! 

Well, I didn't get around to making the Christmas Crack yesterday but I did bake some yummy beer bread that is quite delish with strawberry freezer jam. There is just something about warm bread baking while it's cold and snowing that feels really comforting. Guess I'll have to try my hand at the snack mix this coming weekend. :)

No surprise that I've got another Christmas card to share today. I finally inked up this wonderful Nellie Snellen stamp called Hokey Pokey Dawn. I love these images but the intricacy can sometimes steer me away from them when I'm running short on coloring time. Luckily, I had plenty of time to finally enjoy getting this sweetie on a card. The papers I found to go with Dawn are just a random mix from my scrap bag that I think give this a kind of outdoorsy feel. Love using up more scraps... that's always a bonus. 

Ok, seeing as I'm gonna have to dig out the car if I'm going to get anywhere today I should wrap this one up. TTYL!

Hi Amy, this is really adorable! She looks like such a Happy Little Christmas sprite. I love her little snowflakes coming out of her headband and the way you have colored her skirt is fantastic! You always do such a wonderful job! It also looks like you put a little bit of stickles or glitter around your circle. I love how that looks. Very very sweet Christmas card. Have an awesome day and drive safe. Hugs, Lisa

These Nellie Snellen images are really cute, aren't they. Love the happy colours on your card, Amy. Good luck with the snow in your part of the world. We had a lovely warmish day over here. Only switched on the heating around 6 pm, because it was getting a little chilly inside LOL.

She is so cute. Love her socks. Very pretty Christmas card. I used to bake bread twice a week all year long, now I just do it for Holidays, or if I'm extra hungry for it, lol. Stay warm and safe.
