To color these images....I used my prismacolor pencils (oms) and twinkling h20's

Ink - verafine black, bordering blue, creamy caramel

Paper - GP white, basic grey "blush", dcwv

Our Christmas shopping excursion went pretty well. I was very surprised .....the stores were not as congested as I thought they would be. We didn't get home till late evening though....and I still have a few more things to get....but I'm getting there...lol.....Of course...nothing is wrapped and I haven't baked anything yet...Oh my!....still lots to do....

Have a Great Day Everyone!! and Thank You So Much for all your lovely comments!!

Love your birdies! Nice to see this Valentine! No worries on the wraping it will all come together! Baking is good closer to Christmas, it tastes yummier! Don't you think? I want to do some cookies that I can eat right up! (wink)! Merry stampin'! Deb
