Your Kindness Warms my Heart


Searching through card challenges...to keep from working on those Christmas cards I need to do.  I found the Sweet Curtain Call Challenge.   

I was inspired by that cute drink with the yummy marshmallow gingerbread man.  See the picture to the right.

See?  Adorable.  So I set out to see what I could come up with.  

Now I have periods of wonderful inspiration that brings a card sketch to mind and off  I go.  Not so much this time.  Instead, I turn to Pintrest.  I think I am the only one who actually tries out some of their pins.  Now I have more pins than I will actually ever get to this lifetime in reality, but I do actually try some of those recipes, those cute cards or crafts, and in this case I did use a card sketch.  Here it is if you are dying to see.

I began with the coffee cup with the steam in the shape of a heart.  This is a digital stamp from Prettygrafik design I believe.  I colored it in with my copics.  I cut out the digital stamp and the window over it with my Cricut.  The patterned paper for the Polaroid looking square cut is from Polkadoodles Baked with Love digital collection.  Both of these were purchased from Etsy.  The kraft paper with gold snowflakes I cut from the pad I got from Target's Dollar Spot by American Crafts.  I then set my Cricut to write out the sentiment.  I added a bit of green twine, then set it all on a A2 card made with Neena white cardstock.

Here's another view of the card: 
I am linking this to the Curtain Call Challenge "Sweet".
