Enjoy the Magic of Christmas

Note: this is my second post for today. If you're looking for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps blog hop, please scroll down.

Hello my friends! Those of you who know me well, know how much I LOVE all things Taylored Expressions... especially the Key Ingredients Kits. So when Taylor released her new stamps this month, I was in front of the line to fill my basket!

This is one of the sweet stamp sets I added to my collection, Holiday Wonder. Coupled with Cosmo Cricket's Jolly By Golly
DP (some of which just so happens to be part of the Christmas Key Ingredients Kit *wink*), this card reminds me of the song "It's a Marshmallow World." I can't get that song out of my head, but it's such a happy tune, I don't mind!

My card follows this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #86. Have I mentioned lately that a good sketch is all I need to get my mojo going? Probably a million times! {LOL} But it's true! And Taylor's sketches are among the BEST!

I used a pink gel pen to color in the light bulbs on the string, and used Taylor's Tiny Twinkles on the tree and in the center of the dormer window (just for good measure). The chimney was made with a bit of pink velvet ribbon, to which I stitched a tiny heart button I found in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I hope you have a marshmallow day!

P.S. We have a very special host for our challenge starting Sunday at Stampin' Sisters in Christ. A little hint: the initials are TE. Can you guess who? (hee hee)
