I am usually a pretty happy person but I am SOOOOO happy right now. I know that Christmas is "Jesus is the Reason for the Season" but I also love so many things that come along at this time of year. Here are my favs...
1. Eggnog Frappucino's and Latte's are back at Starbucks. Why we can't have Eggnog all year long is a mystery to me but since we don't, I wait for November when it comes back.
2. A close second to this is Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf's new Red Velvet Hot Chocolate! OHHHH wow and another drink that will probably only be around for awhile.
3. The last is this variety of Truffles by Lindt - Dark Peppermint, Dark Chocolate shell with a smooth Peppermint filling in a dark green package. I usually only find this variety at Target's and believe me, I stock up.
I haven't shared my Card Positioning Systems sketch for this last week yet so here it is today.
The sketch is simple and I love it! Gotta love this BasicGrey patterned paper too.
The label is readymade by WeRMemory Keepers and they are so fun to use. Behind that, I embossed a piece of white cardstock with a Sizzix embossing folder. I thought it was a fun little accent.
And here is my Unscripted sketch for the sketch starting today, Saturday.
I am showing off my brand new stamp from a set by Darcie Heater. I was able to attend a stamp convention this last week and I was totally amazed at this great selection in the Darcie's booth. I have loved this company for along time but I had thought they weren't my style anymore. Boy was I surprised. I found so many sets I just plain loved! I colored the stamp by tapping it with Memento stamp pads.
And, now for a few more Vineyard photos...
Is that a scene right out of the books?
These flowers were so beautiful, especially with the grapes in the background.
Can you see that I was really there!!!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
