Snuggle Up!

The Double D Challenge is named Snuggle Up! So I thought using this tag design and by computer generating a sentiment I could perhaps along with the cable sweater embossing folder capture some of the inspiration from the mood board.




The tag is from the Christmas Carol printable collage sheet from the  Iralamija Shop. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the Cable Knit embossing folder is from Stampin' Up!

Sorry I have been missing so much. I spent a good portion of the week of course celebrating Thanksgiving and then I was trying to assemble all the gifts into one big box so I could get it sent off to Japan. I even baked some cookies to put in it. So that mission was accomplished today. Next I wrote up a Christmas letter to put inside some of the cards I will be sending out to family and a few friends. And no doubt I will begin addressing the cards for Christmas soon too.

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I am so grateful for all of you who faithfully leave comments and read my blog. They are so uplifting to me. Now have a good weekend.

God bless,
Verna

What a sweet image on the tag! I love the ribbon and that cable background. I have that folder and have yet to use it. I love the image board and the kitty tucked in the plaid blanket. So cute and cozy.

You totally captured the feel of the mood board with this beautiful, homey card, Verna! You also captured the embossing beautifully in your photo. I love the folder! You've been busy, but getting some important things done. I'll need to get busy and get the international mailings out soon. Happy holidays!

Verna, You rocked this challenge right out of the window. I mean that is a good way. The computer generated sentiment is perfect with the image of the two snuggling in the bed awaiting Christmas morning. That cable knit background, swoon!
