Happy Holiday Monday :)

Good Morning Everyone,

Today over at the Christmas Stamping All Year Long Blog, one of our DT members Vicki of Summerthyme Studio's challenged us to use the spotlight technique where you highlight part of the image by stamping it twice and layering it (here's a great Tutorial to show you how). So I decided to pull out a stamp that I have only used a couple of times and has been sitting at the bottom of the pile - for 2 years (hanging my head down in shame!) 

Everything in the card is from my stash. The stamped sentiment is from Taylored Expressions and the tree stamp is from (hmm...? I will go and check on that!) Check out the rest of the cards in the spotlight over at the Christmas Stamping All Year Long Blog and play along if you have a chance! Its been a great way to not only get a jumpstart in the christmas card making insanity - but also to try out some new techniques :)

Hope you are all having a great Monday - I will be back in a little bit later today with some exciting news! 

(no - I am not pregnant- LOL!!!)

Thanks for visiting!
Happy Monday!
Sankari :)
