Bells & Boughs with DCBD

TGIF everybody!!!!
Is this week over YET? OMG this has been a week from....well I'm sure you can guess where. I had every intention of coming home on Wednesday after physical therapy & stamping the afternoon away to DE-STRESS on my day off!!! Instead I ended up being called into work, so no "me" time like I had planned, don't you just HATE it when that happens? And yesterday I just couldn't move my body up the stairs to my stamp room to get anything done. Just a few more hours & I can put this week in the past & hopefully next week will be so much better!

Today I am using this week's sketch from Diva Coffee Break Designs, along with the new Christmas set Bells & Boughs out of the Holiday mini.

The buttons I used were the old ones Stampin' Up! used to sell in Very Vanilla, however I used the Crumb Cake marker over them to give them just a bit more color & then heat set them just a little because I couldn't wait for them to dry. (the shadow on the big button is from the scanner & isn't actually there, lol)

Thanks for stopping by & Happy Friday!!!!

Sets: Bells & Boughs
Ink/Markers: Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, More Mustard
