One of things I discovered was my Birch Trees dies have all retired and since this is my DT card for Simon says Stamp I couldn't use them. I decided I would buy the Hello Blue Bird Birch Trees dies and blow me you've all brought them at the moment out of stock, if you want them I would definitely do the notify me when back in stock, this allows Simon to know how many are interested as well as letting you know.

For some reason I decided to make a circle sky and using the Simon says Stamp Falling Snow Stencil and using a white uni-ball pen I used the stencil for my snow dots. Why I've never done this before because it was soooooo easy.

I used the Simon says Stamp Wonky Rectangles mainly because it gives a finished look and for my little critter I used their Retro Deer. Coloured his antlers with a brown pen and Nuvo Drops Autumn Red for is nose.

Not sure what I was thinking but I cut the top of the Birch trees with Simon says Stamp Stitched Circles which gave me the curved space at the top for my sentiment.

Now to work out the sentiment, from our Family part is from Simon says Stamp Ornate Ornaments. Oops can't seem to work it out and I've tidy my craft room since making the card, seriously need to get my act together and write things on a post it note. I've sneaky feeling that 3 stamp sets were involved and the wishing one could be from a birthday set rather than Christmas and found loads of Merry Christmas I could've used, the only thing I can guarantee that they were definitely were Simon Says Stamp. Will have to work it out cos I reckon I may need it again.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

The deer is so cute and adore those birch trees too Debby, and a great idea to use your falling snow stencil with a uni ball pen which has worked well. x

So pretty, Debby! Love the limited color palette with tan and deep blue. Absolutely wonderful & peaceful scene. The red nose on the deer is the cuttest♡

I adore how you created a dimension by just cutting the birch trees in a circular pattern on the top. It gives the card a very 3D feel. And the red nose on the reindeer.. Hello there Rudolph! :D Have a lovely day, Debby!
