Christmas Wreath

I made this card for today`s challenge on Splitcoaststampers. This one was great. I made the two triangles using stamps, versamark and embossing powder. On the blue side I embossed the snowflakes with crystal transparent powder and I used gold detail on the whisper white. I have tried to paste a copy of the sketch but my magical powers seem to be on the fritz today, instead here is the address: . ( Sorry about the lack of talent to transfer this.)

I bought this Stampin Up stamp at the stamp exchange at Carousel Rubber Stamp store in Darthmouth Nova Scotia. The year on the stamp is 1999 but I have no idea what set it is from. I stamped it in versafine onyx black and used prismacolored pencils with OMS. I then highlighted it with H2Os to make it glimmer.
Day 2 without a vehicle and I am surviving. The problem today is the weather.`s cold today. It is only going up to 16C today and that is not warm enough. I would have the fireplace on except the boys turned off its pilot light and I can`t get down to turn it back on.. Oh yeah, and it`s only August.
Off to look after the pups. Talk later.
