Sweet Wishes Waterfall Card

Hello, everybody! Welcome back to Day 2 of the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! This is my second project for today!  The hop runs through December 18 and anyone can join!  We are focusing on winter/holiday projects with images of coffee, tea, or cocoa. It's a blog hop so commenting is encouraged and much appreciated!


I know waterfall cards have been around for awhile but I've finally mustered up the courage to make one after seeing it on my friend Debi's blog! There is a tutorial here. My card features an adorable digi set that I won from Lia Stampz called Warmest Wishes.  I used the mug, hat, and mitten from this set.


I used the Flip Fancy Die Set from Repeat Impressions, which is perfect for waterfall cards! The patterned paper is from BoBunny.


I coloured the images with Prismacolor pencils and added clear glitter on the hat.


The sentiment is from Sugar Pea Designs - Sweet Treats.


Of course, you know I had to include a kitty!  This one is a 2006 wood-mounted rubber stamp from Stampendous called Snow Buddies - Christmas Kitty.  I added clear glitter on the white parts of his hat.  The tree is from Close to My Heart - Trim the Tree; and the ribbon is from Offray.

Some of you have asked about my elf Eli... have no fear, he is still here!  He's been keeping out of trouble, still recovering from all of the candy canes he ate the other day! Eli noticed I am pre-occupied with hot beverages this week (more than usual haha) so he is hiding in my snowman mug to try to get some attention! Eli is linking up over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky! If you have a little elf, you will want to join Eli, Arci, Ron, Daisy, Elizabeth, Loopy, Elfin, and Hope in their funny elf antics!
