If you've just jumped over here from Meredith's blog, then you're in the right place. If not, be sure to stop up by Susan's place so that you don't miss a THING along the way.
As it luck would have it...Meri, (who's blog you just came from...) is one of my oldest and dearest friends. We lived right next to each other in college, and now she lives just in the next town over.
She also, happens to be sickly addicted to paper, ink, and ribbon just like me!!!! Over the last few years, we've bemoaned the lack of Chanukah stamp sets available for her holiday cards. So, you can imagine how excited I was when I saw the beautiful designs that Alma came up with to fill just this need! This set "Shine Bright" is just so elegant, and I was thrilled to get to put together a card to celebrate its release!
As I was playing around with my TCP holiday stamp sets, I kept coming back to the image of the Menorah and the sentiment Shine Bright.
I kept wishing I had some silver cardstock to go with it, and then remembered, that I had this gorgeous German Glass Glitter "Glitzy" which is also being released this month. I took my diecut and ran it through my Xyron sticker machine. Then poured on the Glitzy. Aaaack, you can't even believe how sparkly it is in real life.
And since there are FIVE stamp sets being previewed this evening, how could I share only one? I have another sample with "Give A Little" a sweet Christmas set.
So... who's ready for a little Christmas Poochie? I seriously wish elves were delivering the presents under the tree. My four year old has a pretty extensive, and ahem, expensive list going on already, and its only early November. I'm dooooomed.
I am sure that no matter what holiday you celebrate, you'll find something fantastic in this month's release from The Cat's Pajamas.
You're almost to the end of the hop! The last stop on tonight's Holiday Hop is the sweet boss lady of us crazy cats herself ALMA!
