Hope This Year Is Your Best One Yet

Happy Friday! Today I'm playing along with two challenges: (1) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - "Layer It Up" and (2) Time Out Challenge - "You."

My card features one of my all-time favorite layering stamp/die sets called Mountains (from The Ton). It's so easy to line up, and the layered images are so realistic and absolutely fantastic! We live in the foothills of Colorado, so I'm a total sucker for anything mountain-themed! And anyone who knows me KNOWS that I'm crazy for mountain adventures---hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, etc. There's no place I'd rather be than in the mountains with my husband and our yellow lab, Pepper :)

Here's my card:

... and while I was at it...I made another...
