I {heart} woodgrain..

If you'd like to see my first post, scroll down!  DeNami is showcasing their Cornucopia stamp and its 10% off right now!  It's a must for those Thanksgiving cards or place setting cards!  

So if you follow my blog, you know that I really get attached to something.....like a certain impression plate....and then I use it...a lot.  Well then I recently realized that I do have *other* impression plates...well other than the linen plate I love so dearly.  I found my way back to my beloved woodgrain plate this week.  And here is what I cam up with...

I took a piece of Rustic White and sponged a few snowflakes on it.  Then I stamped this sentiment from PTI's Holiday Photo Finishers.  After that gorgeous Jumbo Java ink was dry, I ran the whole thing through with the woodgrain IP.  LOVE.  I added my focal point...the gloves and that yummy green bow!  I added a distressed snowflake, button and twine!  Oh and some pearls.  It wouldn't be finished without them right?  :)

I am SO in a holiday mood now!  It is so nice and chilly outside!  I love Thanksgiving and Christmas and I can't wait to get to decorating!  It's not too early for a Christmas tree is it?  ;)

My Christmas tree is going up November 5th...
first Saturday in November!
I wanted to put it up a few weeks ago...
the fuddy dud who likes to rain on my Christmas parade said "no".
So in my opinion...
it's perfect timing...
*giggle*
And this is gorgeous!!
Love the vintage, rustic feel with it...
and in non-traditional colors...
I lovey, lovey, lovey!! :)

Am I ever glad you rekindled your love with the woodgrain embossing folder to produce this beauty! Love the texture paired with the rustic white background! The snowflakes gently falling across the page are beautiful! It will soon be full blown holiday season. 8 weeks roughly? Oh wow! :-) Amy
