Warm and Toasty with Friends

I made wintery and warm and toasty cards.  Sending one of these cards is strange when it's going to be in the mid 60's here. 

I took a little liberty with this delightful Doodle Pantry image called Cocoa Ants.  I used the "pre-colored" image, but colored the ants with copics. Having an extra window card laying around, I took advantage. As I looked outside my house I noticed all the brown branches, so I added the same to my card. I used a crimper to add a curtain topper, but it's had to see.

A2, Holtz brick embossing folder, twine, branch die, metal embellishment

A very very very  older rub-on sentiment I found cleaning the craft room yesterday

  1. What a wonderful card! I just love the brick embossing folder. Reminds me of the PB stamp I just used. You did a great job with the cocoa ants. I do love the window die and the branch really looks realistic! Wonderful card!
