Welcome to my very first blog post!  :)

Thanks so much for coming.  I've been making cards for a few years now and posted on Splitcoaststampers.com  but here's to trying something new!  And it's only right that my first real post is for Our Daily Bread Design's Shining the Light Challenge... I posted on SCS for the first time for the same reason two and a half years ago.  

This week's challenge is: NOEL Word Play (use items beginning with each letter in noel to create your card or project) eg. N- notions, nestabilities, negative O- oval or circle shape, olive, old E- embossing, embellishments, eggplant (color), envelope L-Lace, layered, letterpress

I used the following to make my suspended ornament card.:  
N=Nestabilities; O = Ornament, Oval Dies; E = Embossing; L=Leaves and Layers


Stamps:  ODBD Jingle Bells
Dies:  ODBD Custom Fancy Ornaments Die, Spellbinders Ovals, Fancy Labels
Paper:  DCWV Luxury Stack, Recollection White
Accessories: Snowflake embossing folder, MS pine branch punch, ek holly punch, Red pearls
