Oh Patti, this card is so adorable! I have that stamp on pre-order and am beside myself waiting for it to arrive. You've colored her up just perfectly! I feel like that's me bathing in my extra large cup of coffee each morning. A girl can dream. Right?

Such a great card, Patti. Adore the image of the girl inside the teacup. The cup has such fun detail on it. It looks like you added some sparkle, too. I like the inlaid Merry Christmas. It looks fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing. Hope all that snow melts fairly quickly and you don't get any more big dumps like that!

Love your sense of humor, Patti and the card certainly reflects it!! Oh, not sure if 8" this time of year wouldn't send me into a depression. ;-)

Now you've done it! Now I want that stamp and also those dies. That is such a great stamp set and you used it perfectly. Great job Patti!

Now this is fun!! Just look at that sassy little lady relaxing and having some 'me' time! 8"of snow...I don't think I could bare it with Easter just around the corner. I say that as they are calling for some snow here tonight. I hope I wake up to just a dusting and not inches LOL!!

Well deserved win Patti! Your card is wonderful! Looks like me trying to fit these long legs of mine inside the coffee cup! Love the inlet sentiment too! Congrats!
