Brrrr, cocoa anyone?

It's freezing today! Ok so I know I'm in California so I can't say a word about freezing, seeing how many of my fellow Pretties have been barricaded in by snow. But when you're used to warm temps then it suddenly drops down to frozen windshields....to me, that's freezing! ;)

The good news.....it's FRIDAY!!! I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful New Years, I spent mine on the couch with apple pie & ice cream, the movie Elf and a sweet little pup named Chloe. We wanted to make sure there was enough noise in the house so she didn't get spooked when the fireworks and loud noises began...luckily between the heater and the movie she didn't hear a peep.

So with the new year upon us, my goal is to start checking in with friends and family that I don't get to see that often. This is the perfect set for making those "just because" cards. Look Who's Perky is one of the very first sets that I just fell head over heals in love with. Well, that and Sealed with a Kiss of course, but this one is just so versatile I love it! I used my nesties to create the embossed square and then paper pieced the mugs on top. I ran the turquoise paper through my Big Shot and then lightly buffed the dots with my scuffer (this only works on white core paper btw). Then lastly I added the ribbon slide along the bottom with some white grosgrain ribbon and of course a touch of brown Martha glittah on the polka dots.

Do you guys have any goals this year? I don't use the word "resolution" because then when I don't keep them I feel like a faliure. Goal sounds more flexible, eh?!? ;)

Love your colors Jilly! Sounds like a nice way to spend New Years! Hope you had a good Christmas too! My goal is to become more organized and keep my stamp room cleaner, and to have things already made rather than staying up late the night before to get stuff done.
