Warm Fuzzies

Today's 365 Cards challenge was to create an indoor scene. Amy's card was so darn cute, I just had to play along.

I figured this would be a good card for my stash, especially as fall approaches. Can't you just picture yourself on a cool, rainy day, curled up on the couch, with a good book and a warm mug of hot chocolate? Ahhh...

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for some BIG news!

Stamps: On My Couch, On My Couch Additions (PTI)
Paper: Ruby Red, Kraft, PTI white, SU dp
Ink: Basic Black, Ruby Red, Baja Breeze
Accessories: button (PTI), twine (SU)
