Hello Friends!

Well here I am again to join in some other challenges. This will be my first entry into Make It Monday. Also, I will be entering Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge. With all that said, here is my card for today, enjoy!

The Make It Monday team has presented a technique called
sentiment strip grounding. My sentiment also uses partial die cutting along with stip grounding. The rest of the sentiment 'day' was then added to complete the grounding technique.
Three gems were added to for a bit sparkle and interest.
Above: Showing the rest of the sentiment 'day'. I really enjoy how the stamped sentiment settles into the die-cut so nicely; Below: This photo shows the luster and layering of the snowflakes.

For those of you that experienced snow may remember how magical it is to see the first snow of the year! So clean, fresh, and so sparkly; especially during a sunny day.  I know in March I will look at this post and wonder what on earth I was thinking, but for now I idealizing the thought of snow.. I guess that is what you do when it is 93 degrees (34 celsius) outside.

Well that should do it for me... I want to thank you once again for joining me at TheGrandStampede. I hope you enjoyed your stay and looking forward to your return. Until then take care and happy stamping!

All the best,
