Happy December!

Can't believe it is December already.  This year has just flown right on by!  I hope that your tree is up, your shopping is done and your cards are in the mail.  What?  They aren't?  Mine either.  We just got back from a 10 day vacation so I guarantee you are farther along than I am. :)

Just in case you are still making cards (and if you aren't, I am jealous!), here is another one to inspire you today:

Colors: Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, and Cherry Cobbler.  Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes and Mixed Medley.  Big Shot: Holiday Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and Holiday Ornament Framelit Collection. Punches: 3/4" Circle and Scallop Trim Border Punch.  Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Tulle Ribbon, Pearl Jewels, linen thread.
This card was inspired by my friend JanTink.  If you are ever in the mood to be completely inspired and overwhelmed at the same time, check out her creations at Stamps, Paper, Scissors.  They are always over the top and always amazing.  I changed the colors up on it and added my own bow to the top of the ornament.  That piece of tulle is actually stitched on to the card using linen thread to make it gather in the middle.  You can achieve the same look with a brad as well though.  It just needs to be a big brad, like our fancy glitter ones.

Stampin' Up! has been inundating us with news lately.  And there is even more to share today:

-Stampin' Up! has launched a new customer site that is social-media friendly and full of inspiration.  Check it out at

-Right now there is a Mega Massive Giveaway on the My Digital Studio Facebook Page.  You could win a free copy of MDS2+ and/or every new download in 2013.  You can enter every day so don't miss out on this chance to win!

-I had the chance to preorder from the new 2013 Spring Catalog this weekend.  Watch for some sneak peeks coming hopefully next week.  (I do have to get ready for Christmas this week, you know.)

- Stampin' Up! has added some kits to their online stores that are perfect of packaging up cute neighbor or coworker gifts.  Check out this video and then shop now to get some!
