You're a work of art!

Hello there!  Someone mentioned to me yesterday that Christmas was just around the corner and after I finished having a tiny panic attack I started wondering if it was time to break out my Christmas stamp sets and start on my cards??!!  I even went as far as to go and inventory my current Christmas sets.  I pulled out a couple of my favorites, but decided I'm just not ready yet! LOL  So, I put all but one set back and decided I'd compromise!  I made a card today using a Christmas stamp set, but it isn't a Christmas card!  Here is my not ready to think about Christmas Christmas card:

I used the Reason for the Season stamp set, but don't be fooled!  There is no fa, la, la, la or not even one jingly bell anywhere to be seen!  I'm just not ready yet! LOL

I stamped and stamped again to get the different shades of flower (which might resemble poinsettias, but are not!!) and then fussy cut and layered them.  I did this with two of the flowers and stamped the third right onto the base Very Vanilla piece.  I added a fun little banner up top and a half circle from the 1" circle punch.  I stapled them both in place!

I slathered the non poinsettia looking flowers with Wink of Stella to add shimmer and sparkle (which I'll have you know can be used in August!  You don't have to save it for Christmas!) ;)  

Here are the supplies I used to make this not a Christmas card card:


I hope that I haven't caused you too much stress by bringing up the whole Christmas is right around the corner thing!  LOL  If you are feeling the need to get a jump start on your cards, now actually is a great time!  Or you can stand over here with me and quietly protest for a little bit longer!  

I hope that you have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
