Prickley Pear Pine Cone Inspiration

It’s Monday!  No groaning allowed.  It’s time for a fresh start and, for some of us, growing anticipation for Thursday’s holiday!


Today, I’m sharing another clean & simple Prickley Pear holiday creation with you.

I used a pretty, framed main image called Pinecone ATC, a red rubber stamp, to frame the holiday sentiment (Fill Your Home).  I added a little snowy sparkle to the pine cones using my clear Wink of Stella Brush marker (love that thing!).  The main panel was then popped up over a 1-inch strip of coordinating cardstock.

The weekend went by so quickly!  DH spent most of Saturday cutting underlayment for the craft room floor.  Tile is next!  Here’s a little sneak peek before the underlayment was put down…

Little by little it’s coming together.  Feels like there is still a lot to do, but I’ve actually been stamping in that half finished room!  I figure the lack of a finished floor, woodwork or doors doesn’t affect the quality of one’s stamping.  *wink*

Have a marvelous Monday!

    I love the mono-chromatic approach you took for this lovely card. Can't wait to see your crafting room when it's done. Love that counter. Looks like you may be thinking vertical storage.
