SC200 Thinking Winter...



Hi! I hope you had a nice weekend... I caught up on a few cards this weekend , including this awesome Sketch Challenge from SCS. I have been particpating in their SC's for a while now and I can't believe we've reached 200 already. Wow! I used a retired SU set called Polar Bears. Like I've said before, you'll see a lot of retired sets used on my blog 'cause I (literally) have hundreds of them and I can't see investing in a similar stamp just because it's "current". Don't let this comment mislead you, because believe me, I spend plenty on new stamps! How can we not with all these new companies popping up everywhere? lol! I just try to choose things I don't have anything similiar too. This silver foil leaf was a total surprise in a Christmas jar of Primas that I bought at one of my favorite stores, SimonSaysStamp. The snowflake punch is Martha Stewart. Thanks so much for stopping by! (hugs)
