Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat!

Oh how I love Christmas! My children are getting so tired of my Christmas music in the pickup...but I just can't get enough. My youngest daughter thought I needed to get this stamp (it's Impression Obsession)...and I must admit, I LOVE it! And I love, love, love this card!

The pp is from Target and Frantic Stamper. I crinkled and sponged the Target background paper. The sentiment is computer generated...but I know that "warm" goes well with coffee! What could be better...coffee and Christmas!

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits. The stars are gold, though it's hard to tell. It's prettier in person.

The red gems added the perfect touch! There are two different sizes and slightly different colors. Mmmm...I need more red bling so I can case my own card!!
