Stampin Up Artisan Design Team- Year End

Wow! Can't believe how quickly the time has come to say good bye- our reign as the official Artisan Design Team has come to an end. Please pass the tissues...
It's been an amazing adventure & I will forever be grateful for the opportunity & the many friends I have made along the way.
Since I can not put it off any longer I guess we should get to it-

We were assigned the Sparkly Seasons stamps & dies. I L-O-V-E the die cut words that come with the set so of course I had to use those on my final projects-

(witches hat turned to a pilgrim hat!)
Just in case you're wondering how I made the hook: I used the handheld hole punch & then just made two little snips. Easy Peasy!

It's Treasure Hunt time!

We've set up a global Treasure Hunt as a little thanks to you for following our adventures.

Here's how to play:
1) Collect the names of 12 Stampin' Up! products by clicking through our blog hop this week.
2) Fill out the entry form below.
Please note: One winner will be drawn per Artisan. Entries close 9pm, Wednesday 4th November Eastern Time (US). Winners will be contacted via email week beginning 9th November 2015. These prizes are a bit of love from us to you and are not sponsored by Stampin' Up!
I am giving away the Your Presents stamp set
& my treasure hunt product is....

'Acorn Builder Punch'

  12. Hello Mercedes, I may have not commented much in the past but I sincerely thank each of you (the artisan design members) for doing such a beautiful job on ALL of the blog hops! I thoroughly enjoyed it, was inspired and awed!!! By the way, that touch of gold on the card makes it look so classy, I love it!
