Welcome to our first stamp set highlight of the month! This is my second month with the Stamp Review Crew and I'm having a lot of fun seeing how creative my fellow team members are when it comes to using the same stamp set. If you came from Kelly Kent's blog, thanks so much for stopping by!
As you can see by our banner, we are using the White Christmas stamp set. To be honest, I'm over all the "white" stuff and my mind is on spring. When I saw this was the set we were using I knew I wanted to do something that didn't relate to Christmas. We recently moved from Rhode Island and had two beautiful autumns in New England. We drove to Vermont in October and toured a few maple syrup farms.
So do you know what else those cute little trees remind me of??
You guessed it! Syrup!
My mom and dad just tapped their first trees and made their own syrup this year. They sent me this picture one morning and said they were trying something new! Looked like fun to me :) They sent us the tiniest bottle in the mail and we're anxious to try it. I'm not sure how many pancakes it will cover, so I might pull an Elf moment and pour it on my spaghetti!
So I wanted to make my parents a thank you card and decided to tie in the "syrup" theme with the sap lines running from tree to tree.
I literally threaded some Tangerine Tango twine around the trees. :)
I really enjoyed making this stamp set into something different. I hope they enjoy the card too!
Time to make some pancakes. Or maybe just two. haha!
I would love for you to continue on around the hop. You can go back to the talented Kelly or next to my follower on many hops - Ms. Rochelle Blok :) You can also click on the SRC Banner up top to go to the homepage to see a list of all of the participants!
Have a great week!
