~Timeless Tuesday and Hydrangea~

is Christmas in July!

I used my Hydrangea set, and embossed it with silver.

I figured, why not use it for Christmas?

 Retrosketches #22
gave me inspiration for the border placement.


I've been stamping like mad since yesterday with all this's a blessing when the ball gets rolling and I can tangibly create something that I've mulled over.
