Sending You A Gentle Squeeze



I recently bought this stamp set with matching dies from Ink To Paper. When I saw the cue for CASology Week #347 Citrus, I knew what I was going to do. All stamps and dies are from Ink To Paper Tag Creations and sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

Three flowers, three leaves, three sequins.

Happy Christmas



I'm playing at AAA Cards today, where the Challenge #144 is Maxi White Space with an optional twist of Christmas In July. What a fun challenge!

I love this little rockin' reindeer - a wood mounted rubber stamp from Memory Box that I have had for ages. He comes out of my stash from time to time, and I thought he'd be the perfect star of my card. I gave him a red rhinestone nose, so though his name is Blitzen, he's a bit Rudolph-y. LOL! I used a sentiment from SSS Tiny Words Christmas to help keep the white space maximized.
