December already?

I feel like just yesterday it was August and now today I had to flip the calendar over to December. Where does the time go? Oh how I wish it were still warm and sunny August. We got our first measureable snowfall overnight. Oh how I hate when the weather gets like this. I awoke to the sound of snowblowers and spinning tires. Yuck! They only bright side of today is I get to pick up the 4th book in the Twilight series from my friend Kris so hopefully I can read the night away!

Today I have a card to share that uses of the new release stamps from DRS Designs. DRS Designs is known for their wide selection of sentiment stamps and this new release is a wonderful addition.
I was really happy with how this card turned out. The shimmery flowers were painted with Shimmerz Gold glimmerz Blingz. The Gold glimmerz Blingz is BEAUTIFUL! I absolutely love it. If you missed my post a couple days ago, I got to share the news that I am a new member of the Shimmerz design team and I could not be more excited!!!!! Actually, excited is a major understatement! Shimmerz is one of my absolute favorite products and this card really shows why it is. I think the shimmery flowers really make this card pop! If you haven't tried Shimmerz, I definitely reccomend it! You can order Shimmerz from several online stores including a few of my favorites: Firecracker Designs, Jacksonbelle Embellishments and the newly opened Shimmerz Shop online store.
Supplies used: Stamps from DRS Designs, SU CS, Shimmerz Gold Glimmerz, Sharpie markers, misc ribbon, foam dimensionals.

I hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!
