"Hazel & Nutty" talk "Christmas"!

Hey there, my sweet friends!! It's Monday again! And I'm back from the most fantabulous vacation in St. Maarten! I tell ya, hanging out in the Carribbean for 9 days is just a little slice of heaven!! Here's a pic of our beach chairs . . . would'ja just look at that stunning turquoise water!! Sigh! I miss it already!
I'm happy to be back home, though . . . I've missed my own bed . . . and my studio . . . and my stamps . . . and my Copics!! Oh, oh, oh . . . and guess what? I have a fun new Sugar Nellie DT project to share with you!!
This week's "tag" card is part of that commissioned order I mentioned a couple of weeks ago! This little darlin' is called "Hazel & Nutty" and is part of Sugar Nellie's Home Grown Collection available at Funky Kits. Aaacck! I just checked the store, and it seems that the Hazel & Nutty stamps are temporarily out of stock. Please keep checking, though . . . there's more stock being added all the time. (Sorry about that.) Here's a peek at the "sentiment" tag . . . 
My card "recipe" . . .
Real Red & Garden Green cardstock: Stampin' up
DPs: "Wonder" by Authentique
Holly Die: Tim Holtz
Around the corner punches: Martha Stewart
Corrugated paper, bells, pearls, & twine: my stash
Sentiment: Lili of the Valley
Stardust Stickles & Spica pens
Viva "Iced White" Pearl Pen
Tag & envelope: Melissa Frances
Copics & pencils

And . . . here's my famous "artsy" view . . . you may recall that I completely forgot to take one of my last Sugar Nellie DT post 2 weeks ago! You see? Vacation is evidently very good for one's memory!!
Okey dokey . . . that's it for me, my lovelies! Thanks so much for stopping by once again to see what I've been up to . . . and for your very sweet comments! Hugs . . . until next time . . . .
