Magical Holiday Season....STAMPlorations CUTplorations November 2017 Reminder Post


Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I imagine that it was filled-to-bursting with busy-ness for my US friends, with Thanksgiving but three sleeps away!  For us: two Christmas craft markets (my husband bought lovely bracelets for our 'older' niece), a tour down country roads, just because, and then, an evening wander through downtown Cochrane (our new town), to enjoy the 'Light Up' festival.  Fire pots, hotdogs and hot chocolate, caroling, lots of bundled up little ones (jacket-and-sweater clad dogs, too!)...a wonderful start to the magical holiday season.

Today, I'm joining my teammates with a reminder post for the STAMPlorations CUTplorations November 2017 Challenge. Lovely image, isn't it?

So elegant the photo, in contrast, so whimsical is my card! I decided to have fun marrying colours (still trying to figure out copics, so please forgive blotchy blending) from the image with some oldies and new-ies (to me) STAMPlorations goodies.

Hope my quirky little forest makes you smile! Want to join me for a wander? I promise, it won't be 'that' cold *grin*

Just love this. What a great way to interpret the inspiration. And your weekend sounds like such fun - totally Christmassy. And we struggle to get Thanksgiving done and then roll right into the Christmas rush.

Oh my your outings sound like so much fun Carol! I wish I was there to enjoy those festivities as well. Your card is fabulous my friend, I love your forest and that magical tree-it surely must be Santa's tree! I don't know what you are apologizing for, your copic coloring is amazing!! I wish I had some copics but I don't. Maybe one day....You keep coloring my friend, you are doing well with your copics. Hugs, Brenda
