The sentiment is from the NEW clear stamp set

It's just of several wonderful sentiments in the fabulous set.
I used a scalloped edge die to make the layers of my tree
and added ink distressing to each piece.  I also added some 
ink to the other panels and roughed them up a big (aka distressed).
This fun little wooden reindeer I found at my local craft store

Good krafty day peeps!
It's Saturday and time for another fun challenge
This week the theme is Circles.  Ohhh the 
possibilities are huge with a theme like this one!

Here's my Krafty Girl creation to share with you today
using one of the adorable images and sentiments from 
the NEW September release clear stamp set called
ANGEL VOICES.  Take a look:

I love love love pink on Christmas cards!! 
I was very pressed for time this week (let's be honest I was 
finishing this quite late last night) so I didn't add much for 
embellishments other than those awesome wooden snowflakes, 
and kept it pretty simple. But with such an adorable image
what else do you really need - right???

I followed the sketch this week from MOJO Monday #416

My Time to Craft #305 - Alice in Wonderland

Hello sweet crafting friends!
Here it is the last weekend of September already - my how time flies!
I'm really relishing the fall weather - my favorite time of year. 

The challenge this next two weeks at MY TIME TO CRAFT
is Inspired by Alice in Wonderland.  
My card today features that little white rabbit that is always
running around saying 'I'm late...I'm late!"  My friends and
family know that I can definitely identify with that statement - LOL!

I kept it pretty simple this week and didn't add any embellishments
as I really was late in getting my card done this week.  Let's just
say it was one of the craziest weeks I've had in a while and I 
am totally exhausted!  Thankfully with such a darling image 
(from Bugaboo Stamps) and a great sketch (from MOJO Monday #418)
it's easy to get it together rather quickly.  

I'd also like to enter this in 

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today.  
I hope that you will go see what the rest of my lovely teamies
have made for your inspiration too!  Would love to see your 
own creation in our gallery this time too! 
Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
