I've used this stamp set a few times now and not once has it been used for its intended purpose of New Year or Christmas gifts.  I love it when stamp sets are so versatile.  Especially when we can use Christmas style ones all year round.

The challenge set by the Watercooler team this week is a masculine card anything goes set by Kath Ricks.

Before I show you my card I must just display my badge for last week - I was thrilled to get an Honourable Mention.

And so on to my card.  I think its a recognised fact that we all struggle with male cards at one time or another.

I've turned to the Wetlands stamp set again.  These little birds are just so adorable and I've used some of the Serene Scenery DSP here.  Not the usual beach scene, but I wanted to use that lovely circle paper to offset the circles of my stamping.

The Cheers sentiment is from Here's To Cheers.  See, not just for Christmas.

 Do pop along and play with the Watercooler Team - they are a great bunch and always take the time out to comment on your blog - something sadly missing these days thanks to FB but its so nice to receive comments and know that there is someone out there!

Fiona, love the way you've used that sentiment from what is primarily a Christmas set. It certainly shows the versatility of the set and makes it more of a year-round "go-to". Echoing the circles from the Serene Scenery by having your stamped images in circles was brilliant. I love the way that looks and the way it pulls the two sides together. Great work, as usual. Thanks so much for sharing and for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Hi Fiona! Great sentiment dsp and stamp set choice for this masculine card. It all works perfectly. I have to agree that DSP is stunning and it balances with the circle stamping on the left hand side of the card so well. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talents with the Watercooler Wednesday gang! Always a pleasure.

Fiona, thanks for highlighting the "other" side of the Serene Scenery DSP! The photo images are so awesome, I forget there is another side. Love how you used the circles with the Wetlands stamp set. Thanks for playing along again with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

Terrific colour combination, Fiona! I love that the Serene Scenery pattern you chose mimics the circles of your stamped images. So great to have you join us again for our Watercooler Wednesday challenge :) ~Deborah
