Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge

I've recently fallen in love with some really cute stamps.  And I'm not one to jump on the cutesy bandwagon that has been so popular this last year or so.  But these stamps aren't 'cutesy'....they are just darn cute and adorable!
I have some of Kim Hughes stamps from prior years as a designer for other companies, so it was fun to find out she now has her own company, Paper Smooches. (  She also has a blog where she runs fun challenges.  The current challenge (yes, I am down to the wire!) is based on this photo from Pinterest:

I am in the middle of making Christmas thank you cards and decided to make one using this challenge.  I used the adorable dog from Birthday Buddies and a sentiment from Sentiment Sampler.

Designer paper is from Basic Grey,  cardstock from PTI.  Colored with Copics.  Santa Hat is from a Studio G stamp.  Twine  is from May Arts.

Thanks for peeking!

Merry Christmas!

So sorry for the lack of posts.  Life's been busy.  But, Christmas is winding down, so life should get a bit simpler.
Here's this year's Christmas card.  Found this stamp by Impression Obsession last February at a rubber stamp show in Clearwater.  HAD to HAVE it.  L.O.V.E. it!  Had so much fun coloring it with my copics.  Kept it simple.  Remember this post?   This stamp inspired that.

I hope you all had a wonderful and enjoyable Christmas.  I did!
