sending holiday cheer...

Hello!!  Hope all is well in your part of the world.  Yesterday we got snow (thankfully it stopped by about 9:00 am), but now we have sunshine, but freezing temperatures.  Hubby works nights and told me this morning that he had to pry the car door open when he got off work at midnight!  Crazy, right??  Anywhoo... we should be back to our normal northwest weather of rain in a few days.  Being that it is so cold this is the perfect time to stay inside and do some crafting.  I made this card for several challenges, Color Throwdown, Addicted to CAS (Dots) and Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday (holiday).

I got this fun Hero Arts stamp, Shari's Tree No. 2, last year and had never inked it up.  Thought it perfect for the current Addicted to CAS challenge.  I inked in a neutral kraft colored ink and then filled in all the circles with buttons and sequins in blue, red, kraft and silver.  The star was covered with glue and then blue glitter glass added.  I die cut the hill using an MFT die, applied glue to the cut edge and then added white glitter glass.  The sentiment is from the HA set "Sending Holiday Cheer".  Finished things off with a few bits of washi tape.


Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, kraft; Stamps:  Hero Arts, Ink:  Stampin Up!; Buttons:  PTI; Sequins: Lawn Fawn and Verve; Washi Tape:  My Mind's Eye
