 that would work in place of my items shown. 
 Wendy Vecchi's Holiday Stamps and large background stamps would

I did a very simple BG, using Distress inks and Stains, alittle bleach. 
My stamps are from Papertrey Inks.

Linda’s Week 2 Tag

Linda’s tag uses these outstanding Trees from Tim Holtz called “Woodland Trees”, Thinlits Die 660978. After seeing them and how she used them, they became a must have item.
My background was the basic Tim BG. Only difference is I used an Sizzix embossing folder after I applied my inks and missed it w/ water. Inked the raised images.
Trees were cut from four different cardstocks all at different lengths, stamped w/ Colorbox White ink and embossed w/ Ranger’s Frosted Crystal embossing powder.
Other fun little goodies were added and some can be found at
Tim’s Reindeer Fight 656923
Impressions Obsession die DIE 330R
Karen Foster Sparkle Burst Brads
Enchanted Forest Holiday Ribbon (From Dollar Store). 
Thanks for your time on beautiful fall day,
 (“were you should be outside enjoying this wonderful weather.”)
This is from (The Dells of the Eau Clair Park"), Just North of Wausau Wisconsin..  That's Just North Enough For Me... Hugs  V
