Christmas cheer - Catch the bug Free Friday

Friday November 20, 2015
Well today is my birthday.. Yeah me.. I have to work today but next year I will be home for my birthday.. I am retiring next year the end of Oct. 2016.. I could of retired 3 years ago.. but the bill keep coming in.. I hope to have a lot of that problem more under control.  This addiction.. hobby is a big issue.. lol like you guys don't already know this. Anyhow I plan to have a nice birthday.

This is the image.. cute huh.. not enough marshmallows in the cocoa though. I love lots and lots and I keep adding until I'm almost to the bottom.. I decide to make a tag and use the ginger bread cookie sticker as the top hole area.  I embossed the greeting on vellum and used silver powder.. I also dry embossed the tag to just give it some texture.  Of course colored it with copics.
