wishing you...

Hello friends!!  Wow... we are having some seriously wild and crazy weather here in the Pacific Northwest.   It poured rain all night and then eased up a bit this morning.  Now the wind has come up again and it is pouring rain!   There is so much rain our local golf course now has two ponds instead of one!  Anywhoo... I do have a card to share.  This kind of weather is perfect for staying inside and getting some crafting done!   I will be posting this one to Merry Monday (silver, white and gold with one more color), Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (Bring on the Bling) and Freshly Made Sketches. 


I'm not one to follow trends very closely.  In fact I consider myself rather untrendy when it comes to paper crafting.  But recently I jumped on the trend bandwagon and picked up the fun little Prized Stag die from Ellen Hutson's new Essentials by Ellen line.  I paired it with an image from the Essentials by Ellen stamp set Merry & Bright, some glitter paper and patterned paper from the Teresa Collins Tinsel and Company 6x6 pad.   My one other color (for the Merry Monday challenge) is red and I added just touches of it.  I must say that I really, really like the stag head done up in that silver paper!  The little panel and scalloped trim were die cut using some Reverse Confetti dies.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Simon Says Stamp Fog; PTI white; PP:  Teresa Collins; Glitter Paper:  Die Cuts with a View; Dies:  Ellen Hutson & Reverse Confetti; Stamps:  Ellen Hutson; Enamel Dots:  BasicGrey; Inks:  Delicata Golden Glitz, Memento Tuxedo Black & Rhubarb Stalk
