ho.ho.ho.




Happy Thanksgiving!

Are you ready for the feast?  We have the prep down, Darin cooks the turkey and the ham.  My momma brings the pumpkin pie.  The kids baked pumpkin spice cupcakes and I do the rest.  I definitely have the easy job!

I was absolutely inspired by THIS Savvy card.  Here it is ala Amy:

cardstock:  papertrey ink kraft, recollections white, cherry wood veneer  stamps:  reverse confetti/tinsel 'n trim, sweet stamp shop/monogram it  ink:  hero arts hues  other:  savvy stamps/deer head die, pretty pink posh/stitched duo 2 die, stickles dry glitter

I did a whole lotta die cutting with that awesome Savvy Deer Head.

The one on the left is with cherry wood veneer paper and a Reverse Confetti sentiment from Tinsel 'N Trim.  The one on the right...well, that uses Stickles Dry Glitter.   One word:  glorious

I removed the deer head from the panel and backed the negative space with scor-tape and then literally filled it up with the Dry Glitter.  I used Pretty Pink Posh's Stitch Duo 2.  The sentiment is from the now retired Sweet Stamp Shop Monogram it set.

I managed to make a total of 12 cards using this design.  Love the 3.5 x 5.5 inch size.

I was inspired by
