mini cuppie

Here in Colorado we've had quite the snow storm and I think in a matter of a day we got nearly 2 feet of snow in our neck of the woods! All of this winter white has inspired me to make some Christmas cards while drinking lots of hot coffee. I found inspiration in Mercy's MTSC45 along with the Christmas Key Ingredients kit from Taylored Expressions. I inked up the tree and mini Cuppie from Holiday Wonder in Memento Rich Cocoa (mmm, hot cocoa....) and colored them in with Copic Markers. Isn't this little teeny tiny Cuppie so cute? I love this little guy. I popped him up with a dimensional so I could put him in front of his little tree. I added some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles on the tree along with some Christmas Red Stickles to add some extra sparkle.

Looking out the front window now, you'd never know we were buried in snow and school was cancelled only 2 days ago - that is what I love about Colorado; it snows, it melts, and then it's 65 degrees outside again.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
