The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes

That's right, everyone's favorite this week at The House: Anything Goes

I've yet to start on my stash of Christmas cards for this year so I
thought Anything Goes this month was the perfect time to kick
off the Christmas card season.  I see my blog friends making cards
every week for Christmas and am so impressed of how ahead of
the game they are.
I stamped up 2002-J, Holiday Lamp Post, used several blue
Distress Oxide inks on my background, spritzed with water
and a shimmer spray, use a gel pen for snow, glitter glue
on the greenery and lamp top.  Die cut by Quick Kutz.
Remember to join in with our challenge weekly, you might just be the
lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the $25 Repeat Impression's gift
certificate. Each entry gets a chance, two if you use a
Repeat Impressions stamp.  My followers get a 10% discount -see

The Ribin threaded around the oval die is a natty idea. Looks very effective. Hugs Mrs A.
