Artisan Wednesday WOW!

Welcome! I can't believe it is November already! We had our first snowfall over the weekend, and luckily my wonderful hubby helped me out and got most of our yard winterized before the snow fell. Yes, my dear sweet hubby is awesome! Are you ready for another great Artisan hop full of inspiration and ideas?

I gotta admit, the Remembering Christmas stamp set was not on my wish list, in fact when I won it for free at convention I traded it to a fellow demo for the ticket punch (which I have yet to use)! So, when it showed up in our November box, I had to laugh! I guess I was destined to create with this set. The only idea that came to my mind was from another Artisan Erica Cerwin who had the brilliant idea of "tangling" some lights into the deer's antlers on this card. I know, fabulous idea, right?!

So, I went with it:

Then I started thinking how cute it would be to make the lights red, green, and yellow. . .

Then I got to thinking what if I didn't want to use it for a Christmas card. . .

No, no. I don't like this set, I freakin' LOVE it!

Now, go through the hop and see how you will be inspired! On to the Cat Cave to see what Cathy has been up to!
