laughter & merriment

No one pass out or faint!! YES you are at the right blog!! Can you believe it...this is my 2nd post this week AND I actually did a challenge on the day it came out!!!! I feel so accomplished!! I don't know if I should be proud or a little sad at my small but huge accomplishment!! :) Well I have been slightly busy, I had my stamp club meeting last night so I was busy getting ready for that...but anyway...on to the card!! I found this darling stamp set at Archiver's yesterday. It's from Hero Arts, it's called Laughter & Merriment. It is so cute...I love the tree and the cute little bird flying over to hang an ornament! I also found some yummy Cosmo Cricket paper called Be Good. I LOVE Cosmo Cricket...they always have super cute paper! I stamped the tree on 3 different patterned papers and then put them all together. I distressed alot of the paper and inked lots edges. I watercolored my bird but the water came out on it's own and was too much, so the bird isn't as clear as I wanted him to be, but I didn't want to start over...so I put stickles on the wings to cover some of that up, but I'm not sure how I feel about it yet! I stickled the star, cuz all tree stars should sparkle! I also added some crystal effects to parts of the tree and the ornament. Happy Wednesday to you all!! Thanks for stoppin by! I picked up a few cute things on my trip to Archivers so I hope to share some more this week! :)
