Warm Winter Wishes

 With Christmas about a week and a half away, preparations - and then some -  are in full swing for sure at our house!  It's been a tad hectic with work travels, my daughter home from college, needing to ship gifts (tomorrow!) and getting the house back in order. 


 But, of course, I needed to get away to my craft room and had a great reason to (not that I need a reason, but I felt a little less guilty)...today starts STAMPlorations Stencil Blog Hop!  Do you need a little excuse to get away to your craft area?  Then join the fun!!  The hop runs until December 20th!



For my card, I used all STAMPlorations goodies starting with ARTplorations StencilsPlaid Maker and Holly Background Mini.  When gold embossing the berries, some of the powder got on the holly leaves (oops), but I really like the result!  Using pattern paper, I stamped and cut the cup from After Coffee stamping the deer image on one of the cups from Nordic Knit Tag and then cut gold shiny cardstock using CUTplorations Warm Winter Wishes word die. 


I'm also joining in these fun challenges:
