Holiday Workshop #19!

My 19th Annual Holiday Workshops are finished for the year!  
I hold them the first week of December each year and they're always a favorite of mine!  We make cards, little gifties, and ornaments.

Thank you to all my loyal customers for coming!  I truly appreciate each of you and hope you enjoyed making the six projects.
Have a Very Merry Christmas!  

Specials thanks to Denise, Mandy, Bren & Cindy, and the CTMH Annual Inspirations Catalog for inspiring me.

Simply Inspired Blog Hop - Seasonal Expressions!

I'm so excited for this Simply Inspired Blog Hop!  If you've arrived here from Pamela's blog,  you are hopping in the right direction!   

The brand new Seasonal Expressions is packed with beautiful new products for Valentine's Day and beyond!  I can honestly say I love every single product in the book!  The papers are gorgeous, there's a fabulous variety of stamp sets and accessories, and there are four  cool new Embossing Folders
 to tickle your Cuttlebug!

 I like the simplicity of the limited palette I've used for my card.   Flaxen, Glacier, Black, and Colonial White were the colors that inspired me and I love how the black makes everything pop!  I did a little random stamping on Colonial White cardstock with the new Brushstrokes, Doodled Designs, and A Bunch of Thanks stamp sets.  I couldn't decide on just one or two new sets, so I had to go with four!  The "You are fabulous" sentiment comes from a very special stamp set called You're the Bomb.  When you purchase this set, $3 is donated from the proceeds to Operation Smile.  What a worthy cause to support!

It's always fun to put the finishing touches in place, especially when using the super cute new Junebug Puffies and Flaxen Extra Thick Twine.  

Time to hop over to Krista's blog to see what cool art she has created!
