Let's get started!

Hello stamping friends!

Welcome back to my blog!  Sorry I have been absent for a few days, but the visit to Seattle to see the grandchildren was great.   We had sunny weather the whole time, which was a true gift! Well, September sure flew by, didn't it?  And now we are into October... time to start thinking seriously about the upcoming holiday season.  In order to make this your most relaxed holiday season ever, I'm going to try to help you finish your Christmas cards by early November this year.  Wouldn't it be nice to have those fabulous hand-stamped cards all done way ahead of time?  Think of how organized you'll feel, knowing that they are ready to be mailed. Then you'll be able to concentrate on all the other things you need to do, like shopping, decorating, and baking!

In order to accomplish this feat, all you need to do is get started NOW!  Next Sunday, October 9th at 1:30 pm, I'm offering you the opportunity to come over to my house for the first Countdown to Christmas class. At this class you'll decide on a stamp set, colors, and design for your card.  You'll also get to make two great cards and enjoy some delicious treats.  Then, on Sunday October 30th at 1:30 pm, you'll cut your paper, stamp, and begin assembling your cards.  At this class you'll have the chance to use all of my tools, including the Big Shot, my Big Shot dies, embossing folders, punches, etc... everything you may not own. 
These classes are a real bargain at just $15 total, or free with a $50 purchase.  Email me soon to reserve your spot.

To get you in the proper mood for starting your cards early, I have a Christmas card for you today.  Check it out.....

This fun card features the new Stitched Stockings stamp set that is found in the Holiday Mini-catalog, as well as the Stocking Builder Punch that is featured there also.  The colors are Lucky Limeaid, Crumb Cake, and Cherry Cobbler.  The elegant greeting is from the new set Hand-Penned Holidays, also in the Holiday Mini.
The Cherry Cobbler baker's twine adds a fun touch. The textured background was made with a new embossing folder, Snowburst. 

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to come back tomorrow for more stamping inspiration!
