Just in Time for the Holidays

***For Day 4 of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Release Sneak Peaks, please click here!***
***For my Skipping Stones Design Sketch card, please scroll down***


The boys, both big and little, keep presenting good cases as to why they would like a new inside puppy for Christmas. They look up at me with their big brown eyes (or in case of the husband...he has to look down at me with his beautiful green eyes as he is over a foot taller than I) and I find myself slowly caving in...

The Craft's Meow

The Craft's Meow's October Release Sneak Peaks is all about the Christmas Holiday! You can read more about the releases at The Craft's Meow! Today we are debuting Winter Fibi and Lily, designed by Mabelle R-O. Another cute set featuring adorable kitten images all decked out for the holidays. I decided to create a gift card holder as I know I'll be needing them this year in abundance. I colored the stamped image with markers, fussy cut it and adhered it to a small paper bag. The sentiment was stamped and a bow tied for the final presentation.


The next set, Christmas Cheer, is also designed by Mabelle R-O and features classical holiday images in a whimsical style. I stamped the Christmas Ornaments in different colors onto a card base and drew the lines for them to hang (I do this technique often...must like it!) I went back and stamped the sentiment and snowflakes, and added some glitter to each snowflake center for extra sparkle.


So glad that you stopped by today to help celebrate this month's release! You can be eligible to win the two featured sets today from The Craft's Meow by visiting and making commenting on the blogs.
