Snowy Christmas Deer

Most of you know that I pretty much stick with Stampin' Up! stamps and supplies..however, there are a few companies whose stuff I buy - those include Amuse Artstamps, Lizzie Anne Designs and now Elzybells (sold by Amuse). On Saturday my pals Claudia and Katy took me to a shop in Waterford called Jane's Craft Studio. I walked in and my jaw hit the floor...there were so many Amuse stamps and right next to the door sat just over a dozen Elzybells stamps looking at me, begging to be held! I left with this adorable image of a deer and bird gazing at a star, the Reindeer Postage stamp and "happy holidays". Let me tell you it was very hard to not take any of the Elzy girls home as well, but Christmas is just around the corner and I had to remain controlled. While on our expedition we also made it to Archiver's in Sterling first time there and Claudia graciously shared a 30% coupon so I snagged a Mega Oval Scallop punch!!! So, here is what I made last night and I LOVE IT what about you?
Supplies Used: Bashful Blue cs, Stampin' Up!

Crystal - I LOVE this card!!! I had so much fun on Saturday! I can't wait to use my new stamps. We need to go again in the new year.

Ohhh...Ahhh...This is great! You have to submit this for something! I'm so jealous you got the scallop oval. They were out when I was there. (I'm also glad she shared the coupon since I forgot to give you mine!) You showed great restraint with those Elzybells. Santa better be good to you.
