Hello, friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend. My husband's birthday was this weekend and so we were VERY busy doing things all weekend long. His birthday was a great success and we had a  ton of fun!

My sister-in-law has started making cakes (and before you ask, she does use a Cricut cake) and so she made him a guitar cake. I was so impressed as she has only being doing this for a few months.



Today's project is made using the October stamp of the month and the Art Philosophy cartridge. The stamp does not show that it coordinates with the cartridge, but after messing with it a little I discovered it does.

All materials except for the button is from Close To My Heart.
The stocking was cut out at 3 1/4". I cut out the holly at 1".
The paper pack I used is the from  Elemental line
