Shopping Our Stash #177 - NOT Ready for Christmas

This week's title says it all: I am NOT ready for Christmas. Is anyone else getting bombarded with EARLY BLACK FRIDAY SALE ads already? Sooooo not ready for Christmas this early in November.

This week's challenge is to use a holiday stamp set to make a non-holiday card or project. Since I need yet another sympathy card, I decided to go into that direction.

Silver heat embossing on the lighthouse and Peace.  The holiday stamp is Peace, part of a Peace on Earth stamp.  Layered on silver mirrored paper and mounted on black card base.  Happy accident, since this is not exactly what I was going for, but it works. 

One more week to play along with the November challenge - Gratitude!
