What's Your Favorite?

If you're here to see my card for The Craft's Meow Valentine Blog Hop, please click HERE or scroll down one post - thanks!

It's Wednesday, and that means another challenge at Simon Says Stamp!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

I think you're going to like this challenge - it's all about your Favorites!  You can use a favorite product,stamp, or tool, so this week should be lots of fun for you to create!

I made you a Christmas card today, using my favorite paper collection this year, from Basic Grey, called Aspen Frost; I fell in love with it as soon as I saw that aspen bark paper, which I used here as my background.  I like Basic Grey collections because they always contain lovely coordinating papers and some solids.  I also used some favorite Hero Arts Christmas stamps, Magic of Christmas for the branch and ornament, and Miracle of the Holidays for the sentiment.


supplies: Hero Arts pool layering paper as cardbase, and white cardstock, Basic Grey Aspen Frost 6" pad, Hero Arts CL462 Magic of Christmas, VersaFine onyx black ink, Spectrum Noir markers, CL630 Miracle of the Holidays, barn door distress ink, clear embossing powder, gingham ribbon, red pearls

Again Heidi has provided us with a $50.00 voucher to use in the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!

                           

I can't wait to see what your favorites are!  And don't forget to visit our blog to see what Guest Designer Jenn Shurkus and my teamies' faves are, too!
