Not just for Christmas (I think)

I think I can get away with using this Magnolia stamp all year round - well Christmas has been and gone (I must have blinked!!) and holly is evergreen so I guess I can use this stamp not only for Christmas.

I have used some beautiful Melissa Frances papers that I got from The Hobby House and some Colour Core card stock which I have distressed with a bit of sandpaper and a distressing tool.  I have coloured the image with distress inks and Twinkling H2O's and added Stickles and Liquid Pearls so lots of shimmer  (talking of distress inks - have you seen the NEW colours that are coming out soon - OMW I so need these!!  The sage is so yummy, so are the two new pinks mmmmm I am drooling here lol).

A bit of stitching and lots of roses from Wild Orchid Crafts (spritzed with Hydrangea Glimmer Mist) and job done.

Now I must head back to the grindstone - I have been beavering away on samples using new stamps for the CHA, got two more to do then I can parcel the cards up and get them in the mail.  Then I have another two lots of samples to make for yet another two new releases.  Best get me skates on lol.

Thanks for stopping by,
