Being proud today

Today I'm feeling proud; all bits are from the scrap heap, an achievement in itself and I managed to take a nice pic without natural light. I think this is the first one I really like, I just turned the daylight lamp a bit and it made wonders. I'm also very proud of my students this term, they are working very hard and are a lovely bunch, if I may say so. I know that I'm blowing my own horn loud and clearly, felt a bit blue and needed something to get in the pink again.

I would like to join:
ABC Christmas Challenge: W for Winter Wishes
Charisma Cardz Challenge: Vintage
Crafty Calendar Challenges: All things Christmas
Fab'n' Funky Challenges: Anything Goes

I used:
Retired sentiment stamp
Hero Arts grid patter stamp
Aged Mahogany and Aged photo Distress inks
Rich Cocoa Memento ink
Cut'n' dry pen nibs for shading the pine cones
Joanna Sheen pine dies
Rust Perfect Pearls
Prima design paper

Hope you have something to feel proud for. Have a wonderful weekend!

Love and hugs
