Something New!

     The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is called "Something New".  New baby, new home, new car, new you, or crafty supplies that Santa brought!  I am going for the supplies.  I felt quite spoiled with the goodies I received.  This card actually uses 3 new supplies.

     The first is a Spellbinders die set called Fairy Cierra.  I glittered up her wand to create some magic.

     The second are my Thank You word dies which are included in a Tim Holtz set called Celebrations, from Sizzix.  There are 13 dies in the set!  What a deal!

     My third newbie is a Darice embossing folder which I received from my friend and partner in crafty crime, Carol.  It is called Plaid Background, and is 5x7.  Love it!

     The ribbons and papers are from my stash.  The rose background was printed and touches of stardust pen were added for sparkle.

     I am trying to get back into the swing of things, and getting into the groove of 2016.  I am on week 3 of this respiratory nonsense, and it just plain wears you out.  Thanks for visiting and not giving up on me.

     I would also like to take this over to Pixie's Snippets Playground #210, since I have used lots of leftovers on my card.

This is fantastic M.A! The fairy die is magical, and I love the thank-you dies too! This is simply an overall beautiful card, and I'm glad you like the embossing folder too :)

Beautiful, magical, and elegant! I love the background paper with that pretty little fairy. The embossing peeking out is just the right touch too. So very lovely. I love the size of that sentiment die! Going to have to check them out.
Hope you feel better soon! Uck on being sick during the holidays.
Sorry I haven't been around lately. The new year hasn't started off good, but WILL get better. Take care of yourself and get rid of that nasty crud as soon as you can.

Such a beautiful card and that fairy with her glittered wand make for a sweet addition. I was really hoping you would be feeling better by now. I will say a prayer that this foolish virus leaves you very soon. Try to enjoy the weekend.
