Are you in the Holiday spirit yet? My family and I went to the annual Festival of Trees here on Sunday. It was family day there as well as the city light up night. Which it would have been nice to have seen the city light up however someone in our party (my darling daughter) pitched a fit after her skating lessons so we packed up and went home. This is the second week in a row where she’s done this! Oh well. She’s starting to learn that she doesn’t get to do fun things after she’s done that. Anyways I need to get my living room cleaned up and the tree up by this Saturday as I have ladies coming over for the 2nd annual cookie exchange!! I can’t wait to have the ladies over.

This card and six others were made similar to it some with different DSP as I was using up my scraps are for my 6th Swap swappers.

Items Used:

Stamp set: Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle, Stitched Stocking

So after speaking with Susan, and knowing that we both have snow or its snowing in both of our areas, we agreed to make something with Snowmen on it.

Now my “punch art” I have cased I though it was a cute idea. I think I saw it done over on Frenchie’s blog  http://www.frenchiestamps.com/

So this week, I messaged Susan asking what should we make this week. Last week we did the Christmas tags. I gave her a couple of options. She decided Gift card holders. Ok I told her. Now, as many of you know I have been teaching two different classes with the West Bowl Community Association here in PG. A Memory Keeping class (using Project Life) and the other class has been Christmas cards, tags and gift card holders.  The next two class nights are Gift Tags and Gift card holders. So these challenges have been great! Let’s head over to Susan’s blog: http://www.susan-stampinsue.blogspot.ca  to see what she’s created this week. I made two different Gift card holders. I was having too much fun today. I cased both of them frpm StampingJill.com- Jill Olsen and Connie Collins.

Wow!! I just got back from Onstage Local in Vancouver BC late on Sunday night. I tell you there were a bunch of crazy stampin’ ladies there! I think I was one of them 🙂 Stampin’ Up! is one of the best Direct Sales companies that I have EVER worked for!  I think once it was said/done, I walked away from there with about the same amount in product as was my fee to attend! I just placed my pre-pre order or Product Purchase Premiere as being an attendee of this event we are allowed to order up to 3 bundles, and several of the new SAB stamp sets. All this product will be arriving sometime next week!! I cant wait to start playing with them!

Moving on…..
