Merry and Bright

I decided it was time to break out this Stampendous set from my purchase this summer. Only after I'd spent the time paper piecing "merry" did I attempt to stamp "and bright" -- only to "wiggle" my block that's too large for this dainty phrase! I was so bummed, but I just let it lay on my table for a couple days. Knowing I had nothing to lose, I decided to add some glitter with my now beloved Red Spica pen, not even thinking it would cover my error! I was beyond thrilled when it did -- just another reason to love those pens!!! My husband tried to tweak my camera settings for me today too, so we'll see if this helps capture the Spica glitter. Hope springs eternal!

What a pretty but simple card. I hit the bonanza the other day and scored the last threading water punch at Michaels! I haven't used it yet but it looks fab on your card.
