Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month December: Going Places

Hi Everyone!!

Its time for a new Stamp of the Month from Taylored Expressions! The stamp of month this month is called: "Going Places" and it also coordinates perfectly with the absolutely darling December's Key Ingredients kit and comes with super cute coordinating dies!
This set is perfect paired with the December Key Ingredients Kit: -  and you can get both by checking out the Taylored Expressions Deluxe Subscription Kit here for more details. 

I love the saying in this stamp set that says: "When one door closes another opens" - it reminds me to always keep hope alive and to see the challenges that are thrown our way as opportunities. There are many times when something heartbreaking or challenging has happened and you just don't know why it happened - and it feels like there is no light in the tunnel - but still you have to keep walking. Looking back, when those doors closed -something else happened - a different path was opened up that brought me to where I am today. Here is my card using this sentiment and the super sweet stamp of the door and sentiment:

Here is a close up of the door - I added a little brad to the door knob and some glitter to the windows :) I LOVE LOVE LOVE the super sweet papers in this set - all of the ribbon, DP's and cardstocl is from Taylored Expressions:

It was so much fun to make one card - that I kept making more and made another one while I was it :)
