Pink and Black Buffalo Check Note Card

 

This was sent off to a dear friend.

How are your holiday preparations proceeding? The offspring helped decorate the Christmas tree over the weekend. And I printed my wall calendars (3 – 2 for gifts, 1 for here). I still have not completed a holiday card – good thing I have lots of sentiments to choose from because HAPPY NEW YEAR is looking more and more appropriate!

Supplies:  Stamp – Papertrey Ink, paper – Crate Paper Falala, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Wild Wasabi (retired), ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Reverse Confetti (holly, berries), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
