Happy New Year's Eve or New Year's Day!

Still a lot of great deals in my sale pages.  Leave a comment on this post if you're interested.

Sending wishes to everyone for joy & peace in 2020.  We're spending the holiday at home--nice & quiet, as usual!  Here's my last minute entry for the IO Challenge: Quick & Easy Holiday Cards
I silver embossed IO Crochet Snowflake 2 (E13064) on a medium blue cardstock.  Actually, I first used a sparkle ep that came out too dark, so I reinked & used silver ep on top.  It worked perfectly & in person you can actually see some sparkle. 
Love the beautiful font of IO Merry Bright & Cozy (D8307) which was embossed with the same silver ep.  I splattered Distress Stain brushed pewter for a beautiful "snowy" background.  Rather than take a chance on messing up the stamped panel, I silver embossed the edges of the card front.  Finished off with a very old blue RainDot which isn't high enough to require extra postage.
