Sweet -n Sassy Sneak Peek

Hello, and happy Friday!  There's lots of excitement building, because Sweet -n Sassy Stamps is releasing new stamps, and in celebration of that release, we'll be blog hopping on Wednesday, September 1st.  Until the big blog hop,  be sure to check out all the Design Diva's blogs for a peek at all the wonderful creations they've made with the soon to be released stamps.  For this card, I used A Cocoa Kind of Christmas.  Little Cocoa is at it once again, finding cute Christmas themed things to hide behind.  One thing I love about this particular stamp is that it could really be used for a birthday, or any gift giving occasion. 
I colored Cocoa with my Copic markers, and the DP comes from a retired Stampin' Up! paper pack.  I followed along with the Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge for the card layout, and used gems for the embellishment element of the sketch.  It's never too early to get started on those Christmas cards, so now, I can scratch one off the list.  I'm also submitting this card for my monthly Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards Swap on Splitcoaststampers.  The lovely Carol is our hostess this month, and she gave us a Christmas in August theme to work with.  Fun, fun, fun!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Wishing you a beautiful weekend, and lots of happy stamping!

Love ya,
