Mailable Monday - Merry Edition

Hi stampers!  I'm a bit late today but a late post is better than no post, right?  Mailable Monday has returned this week!    I'm really afraid I don't have many mailable Christmas cards to send out so I made one last night using the color challenge from the Paper Players this week.
I also combined some new sneak peek items with my "old" stuff.  It's fun to take things from the Spring seasonal catalog and use them for Christmas cards!  This way I have less guilt about not making Christmas cards in favor of playing with my new toys AND less guilt about not using my new stuff because I'm making Christmas cards, ha!  Anyone else suffer from neglected stamping supplies guilt???

I liked the combo in the picture of the colors plus crumb cake so that's what I went with...with a little early espresso thrown in for my deer.  He's (she?) just so cute!!!!
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  No peeking, border banter
Paper:  Very vanilla, crumb cake, cherry cobbler, pool party, cherry cobbler and pool party core'dinations
Ink:  Crumb cake, early espresso, cherry cobbler
Accessories:  Finishing touches edgelits, circle punch, woodgrain and honeycomb embossing folders, dazzling details, cotton ribbon, sanding block

I wanted to use the word merry from Pennant Parade but lo and behold I've LOST it!  Ack!  First time ever I think!  I THINK it's probably stuck in with another set but I just don't have time to look through ALL of them.  Maybe I'll buy another one during SAB *sigh*.  For that ONE TEENY TINY stamp!  Of course about the time I do that I"ll find it, right?

But, having to improvise worked out I guess because I used the diamond pattern and merry words from border banter right on the cotton ribbon.  I also paper pieced a little scarf for him and added some dazzling details.  And do you see the little sneak peek I threw in?  It's actually the pool party banner!  It's pool party core'dinations!  I supposed the honeycomb folder is also a peek but you've already seen that on my blog.

Happy stamping!
