‘Tis the Season

‘Tis the season for more snow!  We got more of that fluffy white stuff yesterday and the boys couldn’t be happier!  It makes for a pretty landscape this morning and now that the little ones and I have delivered DS1 & DS2 to school and DH to work, I’m settling in here at home enjoying the brightness of it all as the sun and blue sky smile down at us!  I do like the freshness of a new snow, undisturbed and peaceful.

Today is the beginning of a new Clean & Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers and I’m guest designing as a DT alumni.  The challenge this week is a Holiday Shopping/Party theme!  Whenever I think of this time of year, Santa hats always come to mind because they seem to appear everywhere!

Stamps:  Prickley Pear

This cat image from Prickley Pear was staring up at me for the occasion and so I inked him up to make a fun holiday card!  I paper pieced the hat and added clear Stickles before popping it up with foam dots.  I started out stamping just a trio of those little red ornaments and then couldn’t stop myself from stamping more!  As you can see, the poor feline probably needs a heavy duty umbrella due to the ornament shower that I created!

I’m off to brew a second cup of coffee, decaf. this time.  My fingers need it.

Have a marvelous Monday!
