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?  ;)

  2. 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!! :)
