Let Heaven & Nature Sing

What a week! 
My husband was off and we had all kinds of plans but I came down
with a viral infection that caused me to be sick every time I moved
my head. NOT FUN!! But I'm feeling better now. 

Our challenge this week at Christmas Card Challenges is a photo
challenge. I recently received Catherine Pooler's latest 
Stamp of Approval Collection - it's fantastic by the way - but I 
haven't had time to play with it as much as I would like. You'd think
with two months off every year I would but it's been a crazy two
months. Hopefully this week I'll have some time to dedicate to
playing with the collection.

I used the music notes and the hanging heart from the 
Wonderful Wreath stamp set
designed by Catherine Pooler herself.

The sentiment is from a stamp set in my craft room - somewhere - 
I know it's here - but I can't find it anywhere. Has that ever happened
to you? I've cleaned up my desk area and I still can't find it. But 
when I do I will add it to the supply list.

I decided to make an all white winter scene and wanted to use the
tree dies from Impression Obsession but I couldn't find it anywhere.
I think that's a sign that I NEED TO BE MORE ORGANIZED. 
Guess what's on the agenda for me today? Yup!
While I was waiting for the tree dies to magically appear I made 
the snowy background with the Falling Snow stencil from
 Simon Says Stamp. I used the stitched circles die also from
Simon Says Stamp, the Stitched Hillside Borders from Lawn Fawn,
and when I found the tree dies - YAY! I seriously need an
organization guru to come and help me - I die cut a bunch of them
and piled them on.
I added a rhinestone to the center of the red star to finish
the card.

So, now it's your turn. Head over to the Christmas Card Challenge blog
and check out what the rest of the design team has created to 
inspire you. Me? I'm going to organize my craft room!

Happy Stampin'
