Happy Holidays

Happy Wednesday to everyone. Hope your week is going well.  Looking forward to a day off tomorrow.  Not sure what I'll do, other than house work which never seems to end. 

Last night I sat down to play with one of the many stamps I have purchased lately.  Really had fun with this one.  I started on white paper, stamping with black ink.  I also stamped an extra image on green patterned paper.  Using distress inks I colored the whole image in blue and purple.  Cut out the trees from the green paper, and glued the two outside ones down, and the middle one is pop dotted on for some dimension.  I added some stickles to a couple of the trees to dress them up.  Some gold thread tied around. My flowers are punched, rubbed from the back on a foam pad to curl the paper a bit and make them stand out.  Buttons placed in the centre of the flowers.
