Season Of Celebrations


Today is day 3 of Flourishes New Release Week.  This set  called Season Of Celebrations ushers in that feeling of Christmas.  Did you know it is only 72 days until Christmas? That is 10 weeks from now we will be preparing our packages and decorating our trees.  This set brings back all the great feelings that Christmas and winter evokes.



When we were kids we used to spend hours sledding and ice skating.  My dad would build a big bonfire to keep us warm.  I wanted to capture sledding as sunset when you could no longer feel your toes but didn't want to quit.  

I stamped my image and embossed it on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock.  The ribbon, lace trim, button, pearls and paper are all part of the newest 123 Create Kit. I am giving you an early peek at it.   I LOVE these kits. They make it so much easier to create.  I used the Spellbinders Oval Dies and the Labels 14 Die. These shapes were all cut out with my Grand Calibur.
