Happy Holiday Monday :)

Good Monday Morning Everyone,
The days are getting colder here and it feels like winter and the holidays are just around the corner! Its really been great to be part of the Christmas Stamping All Year Long group where we have been making cards since the beginning of the year - but somehow with the winter holidays approaching, I still feel way behind! lol! This week, Debbie from the Paper Garden, challenged us to use the paper piecing technique in our cards. This is one of my most fave techniques to use -its just fun to make the DP part of the image. I used Karen Giron's sketch that she created for Taylor's Birthday Bash celebration (check out all the deets here) to make this card:
Card Details: 
Paper: Basic Grey
Ink: Adirondack Expresso
Stamps: Season's Sweetings from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: Corner Rounder, spellbinders, copics, bling from K& co, brown grosgrain.

This has always been one of my fave images - little cuppies with holly on them - so sweet :) This is such a fun challenge - and I hope you join us this week for some paper piecing fun! Check out what awesome creations the rest of the DT have created with this challenge at the Christmas Stampin All Year Long blog!

Thanks for stopping by!!
Sankari :)

Hey Sankari! Strangely, I feel the same way. . .I feel like I'm still behind. Unfortunately, my crafting/blogging mojo right now is not in full gear! I think it's being sucked away by my efforts to exercise and lose some weight. I can't seem to do both. . .I guess they're opposing factors. . one requires sitting and the other requires movement! LOL!

Your card is fantastic! I love those cuppy cakes. . .not good for my diet but I love them nonetheless! You always make such pretty cards and this card is no exception! Love all the layers! 8 more cards to go and we're done for the year! Yay!
