'Tis the Season to be Merry

Hello friends!  It is a gorgeous and unusually warm day here in the Hudson Valley.  I am going to the city to celebrate Thanksgiving with my daughter next week, and of course the forecast is for colder weather and possible rain or snow.  I can't catch a break.  I am taking the bus and hopefully it will not be too bad.  I am making cards and playing Christmas music, and getting in the mood for sure.

I have a card today for the current SSS Flickr Challenge #58.  It is all about coloring, and I love to color.  I had to use  my new SSS set, Christmas Toys.  This set has so many adorable images, but this time I controlled my urge to use them all at once.  With images this small, I usually use Prismacolor pencils but I wanted brighter color so I went with Copics. The back ground is a new stamp from SSS, Gingham.  A new favorite of mine!

Paper: Kraft cad from HA, Neenah and Bazzill
Ink:  MFT, SSS and Versafine
Stamps:  SSS, Christmas Toys
Dies:   SSS Christmas Toys coordinating dies, SSS borders and stitched tag
Other:  Lawn Fawn twine and clothespin from Michaels
