Relaxation time

I like the fact that Elisabeth Bell most generally has her name on her stamps, so I'm not always wondering just who the designer might be.   I chose this cute image, as she really seems to be enjoying her cocoa and cookies - I'm guessing she's taking a break away from Christmas decorating/baking - and her kitty is just looking for a crumb or two to drop !!  I used a couple doilies here, although I didn't realize I should have moved them up a bit more, because the brown one hardly shows up.   I added some lace, gems, bow, flowers, leaves and then a candy cane brad as the center.   Hope you all are in your final stages of Christmas preparations.  Joyous holidays to each and every one out there!!
