Country Home In Review

Hello my stamping friend.
Holiday Catalog debuted 2 weeks ago with many exiting new things. Because I live in Florida and it is like 100 degrees right now - it is not easy for me to switch yet into holiday mode. When the catalog comes this time of the year - I always flip back and look for fall ideas first.This year I absolutely love Country Home Suite with the stamp, DSP and embellishments. It is so on trend! It was my first pick from Holiday Catalog. I used it in one of the swaps I participated:

I used some new blends to color the image. It was actually very fast to color.
I used small scallops cut in half for the boarder.
Hope you like this new set as much is I do.
Happy Stamping!
