warm happiness too...

Happy Wednesday!!
I am gonna have another quick post for you today...Mike and I have a few shows to catch up on (Tuesday night is when I am typing my actual post), (boy I LOVE my DVR!!!).

My MIL celebrated her birthday on Sunday, and since pink is one of her favorite colors, I had to go with a bright pink color. I was also anxious to ink up my new PTI stamp set, Warm Happiness Too, and since my MIL is a coffee drinker, it was a done deal. I also used my new Circle/Scalloped Circle Nestabilies (which I purchased with a Hobby Lobby holiday gift card), and popped the coffee mug up with a pop dot. Not sure if you can tell from the photo...but I also added some Crystal Effects on the stamped coffee area, which made it look like real coffee inside the mug *the things that get me excited, LOL*.

And I am slowly but surely plugging away at editing my November/December photos~just had to post this one of me and Hershey (I LOVE that little doggie!!).

Hersh and me rs

Have a Wonderful Day!!

Gorgeous care Gretchen, I am sure your MIL will love it! I really like the addition of the crystal effects too :)
And I love that photo of you and Hershey. He looks like he has a lot of personality for a little dog, so cute!
I put in an order for some new PTI on Sunday, now the torturous wait for it to get here. I hate the waiting part. lol
