A Lily Christmas

Phew! It's hard work keeping Itty Bitty Betty's secret. I can hardly contain my excitement and I'm bursting at the seams! I can't wait 'til Tuesday. ;) I needed to distract myself so I thought I'd make a Christmas card with Lily. I've been playing with my brand new QuicKutz Epic Six for the past few days and I can't believe I never had a die cutter before! LOL This little toque die was half price along with a million other dies at Scrapbooks By Design so I couldn't resist. I know it will come in handy when I go to make my many Christmas cards in the upcoming months.

I'm just loving the new Cosmo Cricket holiday paper! I framed these two patterns with distressed vanilla to make the card look warm and cozy as winter should be. ;) The toque would've made a cute little card by itself but I thought I would use it to dress up someone, even an animal! I quickly pulled out all my Pink Cat Studio stamps and tried the hat on every image. It turns out it was a perfect fit on this Sweetheart Lily. How cute is she? It looks like Lily can't wait for Christmas. She's already enjoying delicious hot cocoa and peppermint candy in the company of snowmen!

Fabulous! I love Lily's hat! I don't use a lot of DP (haven't figured out how!) but I know Cosmo Cricket paper rocks!
