So tell me if this sounds familiar.
You see a stamp set. It's by a company you love. It's got the four words of Advent that you've been looking for for forever (they always leave out hope, for some reason). It's got an owl, fox, and bunny. It's got some tiny mushrooms and a stump. It's got some snowflakes. But most importantly, it's got a TREE...and you just can't say no to trees of any sort. Bonus: the images are block stamps so no coloring.
Everything about this set screamed "BUY ME!"
So I did.
And then I proceeded to make a bunch of pretty trash with it.
In a fit of pique, I die cut a circle from a trash panel. Then another.
And after ruining a whole bunch of paper and wasting a whole bunch of ink....
This card makes me so happy. And so grateful to have discovered the European stampers who taught me to play with circles.
The set is Winter Tree and Animals from Hero Arts. The sentiment is an old Gina K stamp, I think. And this will be this year's birthday card for my hipster son who wears plaid flannel, suspenders, and a beanie. He's the young fox, and I'm the wise old owl he never listens to.
He's going to love it!
Peace, love, joy, and HOPE,
