Today, my husband and I donned our respective down-coats and other frigid weather apparel, scuttled into the car (poor thing, left outside, exposed to the elements), and went on a brief shopping trip. I've capitulated to the reality that dressing for the temperatures is not going to involve anything even close to stylish, fashionable or trendy (not that I dress accordingly anyway!), so I treated myself to a new pair of Mark's Work Wearhouse T-Max socks. They are toasty, plus and plushy, plus...like little, cosy, poofy pillows for your feet. My husband thinks I'm goofy, with my childish delight in my pink+purple striped socks, and now, my black and grey ones. Yes. He's right, but given how squishy warm they are, I'm okay with that. Love 'em...
I nearly forgot that the Paper Smooches challenges - this week's SPARKS is Anything Goes - close on Saturdays, so a la my usual nearly last minute style, here I am...with two. I don't have any Christmas-specific PS products, aside from the Christmas Sentiment sampler, so adapting, adapting...
First card is heading to PS, with a layout inspired by Deconstructed Sketch #129:
and the 'note book die extension' tips from the ever charming, ever creative Savannah, at Virtual Smooches.
PS Note book and digits die, and Christmas Sentiment Sampler
My second card was also inspired by Savannah Virtual Smooches, where this week, she used the Loopy Leaf die for place setting wreaths. Tooooo cute...so I took out my LL die, and played along, too. The layout comes from Seize the Sketch #9 (one I'm keeping for down the road...possibilities galore!).

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
Note: So excited that my first card was a PS 'find,' and is showcased on the PS site. Wow X Wow!! Thanks, Kim!!!
