holiday hello



Happy Monday!

I can't believe we're creeping up to Thanksgiving!

I dusted off the 'ole Cameo and put together this holiday hello:


I used the Stocking by Echo Park.  I was inspired by their colors but instead of using the polkas (I can't image adhering all those polkas!} I used my CAS-ual Fridays Beanstalks set.  

A majority of  the CAS-ual Fridays sets I own are sentiment sets...LOVE their sense of humor!


The hello is Savvy.

I wanted to play along with the dual challenge:



and



I was inspired by:

stockings

round gold ornaments

Lots of this 'n that on my card:

cardstock:  PTI & Stampin' Up
stamps:  CAS-ual Fridays Beanstalks
ink:  WPlus9 white
dies:  Savvy stamps
twine:  Timeless Twine
embossing folder:  Stampin' Up
other:  SEI Gold Glitter dots, Studio Calico Wood Veneer
