If you are chilly, here take my sweater...

Happy Monday morning, yall! It's nice and rainy here...we needed it! I hope it's nice wherever you are.

I don't have a ton of time, but I've been meaning to post these samples that I created for the My Favorite Things release last week. I know I say this every time, but this has to be one of my favorite releases!

During my last Hobby Lobby shopping excursion, I found these cuuuuute notebooks in the holiday craft section. They were $3.99, and after much debate, I decided that I would rather buy them already made than try to make one myself. *grin*

I had both the Peppermint Cats and Christmas Owls colored, so I just covered the notebooks with some American Crafts paper, sanded the edges, and added some sponging and brown cardstock. I paper pieced a bit on each image (boy was that fun...) and then added some glitter accents on each one.
I wanted to tie some ribbon around the rings, but my boys have already laid claim to these, so I couldn't make them too girly. *wink* You know how these things are.

The last card uses the individual shoes from the Window Shopping set. To create the main panel, I cut a piece of 140 lb Watercolor paper with my long scalloped rectangle Nesties, then embossed the inside with a long rectangle. Then I stamped the shoes in Brilliance Black and watercolored them with reinkers and a waterbrush. I stamped the circles from Let's Go for a Walk as the background on the Celery panel. To finish it off, I added a few Clear baubles and the cutest sentiment on the sponged pink layer. Easy and fun!

Just a little enabler alert...Kim still has the Girl Who Wants it All collection available, as well as a new product added to the store - SHIMMERZ! I haven't tried them yet, but believe me, I will!

I hope you all have a fantastic day!
