♥ Wishing you the best...♥ {Simon Says Stamp...Anything Goes!}

Merry Christmas Eve! I can't believe it's here already! Presents are wrapped...getting ready for our traditional Christmas Eve seafood dinner...Midnight Mass...kids patiently, err...I mean, not patiently waiting for Santa to arrive! Such a wonderful and magical time of year!


Today starts a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! It's ANYTHING GOES!!
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by DOCRAFTS! I chose the 12 Days of Christmas Paper Pack which unfortunately, is out of stock at the moment, but there are plenty of other amazing DOCRAFTS products available! :)


I used the beautiful Alexis and Abby Snowflake Dies by Simon Says Stamp as well as an older stamp set called Frosty Sentiments by Amy R stamps. I stamped the sentiment using the Ranger Distress Embossing Ink Pad and some Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing powder. I also added a Hero Arts White Pearl and lots of glitter.
