Welcome Christmas

Less than two months until Christmas!

Wooohooo!!! I'm one of those people who love love love Christmas. The decorations, lights, music, family time, yummy food, traditions, homemade cards. I love it all! So I'm especially loving our EurekaStampers team swap this month, which is all about CHRISTMAS! I've been getting beee-uuuu-tiful Chrissy cards in the letterbox throughout October, including this one that just arrived today from Jessica Williams. Isn't she talented?!  (Thank you Jess for giving me permission to share this here xx)

This stunning stair-step card uses the two gorgeous stamp sets on page 26 of the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalogue: Winter Post and Welcome Christmas.

And one more look (check out the tea-dyed organza ribbon)…

I just recently got Welcome Christmas as part of the fabulous bundle promotion that's on this month. I love the limited edition Cocoa Specialty paper that came in the bundle – 12×12 designer series paper that coordinates with Real Red and Soft Suede, and a few sheets even have flocking. Wow, that stuff is so much fun to work with… paper that looks good and feels good too, has got to be a great thing. LOL

I'm still working on my swaps for this month – eek! It's been a crazy time, with the trip to Hamilton Island and since then I've had my head in the books getting all the tax and paperwork up-to-date (I do the book-keeping for my husband's business). Pheww!!! Soooo glad that's over… for now!

Just wanted to say a quick hello to Narelle and the girls from our workshop this morning [big wave] It was such a fun morning, and what a gorgeous group of girls to spend time stamping with.

We made a Riding Hood Red, Garden Green and Very Vanilla card using the Delightful Decorations bundle, and christmas ornament with stamps and coordinating punches. 

Happy stamping,
