Greetings! I hope everyone is having a good week. It's cloudy, cool and rainy here today, which I actually love, especially this time of year. We have a fire going and there's a pumpkin pie Scentsy melt filling the air with wonderful smells! Oooh I do love it!
Do you ever have stamps that are so pretty that you're afraid to use them? Well I do this sometimes. I don't really know why I won't get them out of the package and use them. I don't know if it's because I'm afraid I won't be able to make something as lovely as I think I should with them, or if I just want to save them because they're so pretty?? Anyway, this set was one of those, but when I saw the challenge at Festive Friday, I forced myself to open this package! haha! This lovely set is from WPlus9 and it has so many wonderful little things to stamp, stamp again and die cut. I cut out tons of stuff and just played around with all the pieces until I was happy.
I'm so glad that I forced myself to open these up!!
This is going to the Festive Friday Challenge which was to use a wreath on your card.
Stamps: Woodland Wreaths and Pretty Patches Tree by WPlus9
