New Product in my stash

  This week the Joy's Life Design Team blog is featuring projects made with new product in our stash.  My lovely friend Lauren gave me a 6x6 paper pad for Christmas.  I wanted to use those papers to make her a thank you note, and this is what I came up with.  I cut circles from the My Mind's Eye "'Tis the Season" pad, inked the edges with my black stamp pad for dimension, and punched gold ornaments (SU punch) from gold moire mirror paper.  I embossed a scrap of blue Bazzill card stock with my "Snowflakes" embossing folder.  I added some MME twine and a red button from my stash.
And until now I have also never used this terrific stamp set:


Have you played with your new holiday stash?

My card was inspired by this sketch at Artful Delight:
They have great sketches each month and wonderful monthly card and scrapbooking kits.

I will be in Florida for a week visiting my grandmother and aunts...and no internet access.  Yikes!
