Nature inspired

Good morning everyone and welcome to the weekend! This has been a great week for me, I got some great news (more on that later), the weather is beautiful and I have my friends and family, doesn't get much better does it? Anyways, our challenge this week at Kraftin Kimmie's is brought to you by none other then Moi and it is "Nature Inspired". Fall always makes me think of beautiful leaves, acorns and mums so that is where I got my challenge from.

I have chosen to use one of the latest release's by Rachelle Ann Miller, this is Santa and pup and I have added a pine tree die cut and some lovely flowers to tie into the nature theme.

His bag is paper pieced and 3 dimensional and I have added glamour dust glitter to the snow and white sparkly fluff to his hat and coat trim. Papers are by Christmas Village by Best Creations. All right, that's it for me today. Enjoy your weekend and make sure to play along for your chance to win this stamp!

Hi Amanda, I have to say this card is both adorable and gorgeous rolled up in one. I think that stamp is just so adorable and I love how you have given him a special bag to take along. Great paper piecing. I also think that your choice of flowers and the colors are just gorgeous! Truly Love how you have put them together. I really need to get back into using flowers. I seem to be stuck on my enamel dots at the moment and I think I need to expand my choices on paper. lol... Hope you and Joe are having a great weekend so fsr. I just got home from work and it is cold, windy and rainy, so I have put on my comfy clothes and I am hoping to blog a bit them get creative. Hugs, Lisa

I think the RAM stamps are so cute. Another example of your amazing coloring skills. Of course that sack had to be 3D. It's loaded with prezzies! Hugs!
