You Deserve a Treat & a Giveaway!

Hello Crafter's Companion friends,

Crafting is an extension of me - I make cards that reflect my state of mind.  This time of the year for me is filled with family, reunions, food and party not just from the holiday celebrations but also with 3 birthdays thrown in as well (both my kids and my own). I'm totally exhausted at this time too needless to say. So when my family ask me what I want for my birthday in 3 weeks, I usually just want down time. My cards reflect that:


These 2 cuties are from Strawberry Kisses collection - Friends.  Colored with my trusty Spectrum Noir markers - GB3, GB5, GB7 (dog); BG3, BG5, BG6 (cat) and PP3, PP4, IG4 (cushion).  Sentiment is from the SWALK collection - Deserve a Treat stamp set.

I hope you get a well deserved treat amidst this holiday season.
Thanks for stopping by!
Steph
