Tis the Season

Time marches on!  Thanksgiving has come and gone and now we’re off and running toward the end of the year!  We’ll probably be sledding toward it here shortly and that is something I am not looking forward to!  I think the older I get, the less I like snow.  Maybe I just need to go out and play in it more often!  🙂  Driving in it is just something I’d rather not do, but this school year that’s not going to be an option as I am the bus this year for our kids!

Today, I’m sharing my first winter card using some of the newest stamps from Prickley Pear!  I just love this image!  I added some glitter to the pine cones for some winter sparkle and then popped the whole main image panel up to give this clean and simple card a little dimension.

Stamps – Prickley Pear (Pinecones ATC & Tis the Season)
Paper – SU Crumb Cake & Very Vanilla cardstocks
Ink – SU Chocolate Chip

Accessories – SU Chocolate Chip & Always Artichoke markers, SU Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon, brown pearls, SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter, foam dots (popped up main image panel)

    I know…time has a way of moving forward, even when we would like it to stand still for a moment.

    LOVE the pinecones, and the glitter…very pretty!

    I do like snow and I want to be out playing in that magical world you have created with the pinecones!
