Blog Series Premiere: Christmas Cheer All Year!

Hi friends!

We made it through Monday!
  YAY! :)

You may remember from this post 
that I have several new creative adventures planned for my blog this year ~
Like this one! 
 Christmas Cheer All Year!

December was a month of merry chaos with so. much. going. on!
Since I missed getting holiday cards in the mail 
:::: insert crying face! ::::
 I thought it would be wonderful to create cards all year!
That way, I'll be ready!

At least that's the plan ♥

 This card was created by using a stamp by STAMPlorations 
It stamps so beautifully and crisp and I loved coloring 
the middle of the cup to look like a holiday cup from Starbucks!
The rest of the cup is paper-pieced ..
and the rest is paper and glue and a heat embossed sentiment
from MFT Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥


  1. Both of your cards are beautiful. I had my cards made...I just didn't get them mailed out, because this year I didn't feel well enough to address and write in them, argh. I hope to start earlier next year.

  2. Great card with lovely coloring and paperpiecing. I try to make Christmas cards every week, at least 1. So I have enough of them at the end of the year.
