The beginning of the holidays

I just love the holidays, im so looking forward to them. I love the smells, colors, warmth and closeness of family during the holidays. My favorite time of year is the Fall. I love Halloween and Thanksgiving. I thought I would share some cards I did with the upcoming holidays in mind. Never too early to get started on your holiday cards.


Heres a card I designed for DRS Designs. Here I used the 4 in 1 snowflakes stamp paired up with the Christmas Greeting. I embossed the snowflakes in white on kraft cardstock. Stamped the sentiment with Hero Hues and finished it off with ribbon from Papertrey Ink.

My next card highlights this months theme on Hero Arts - Everything Autumn. I hope you get time to play, you have a chance to win $50 shopping spree to heroarts.com. You can get lots of stamps and accessories for that! Check it out on the Hero Arts blog HERE.


I also got my new stamps in from Two Peas, I was so happy to see the mail lady. I love getting goodies in the mail. Im sure you do too, its thrilling except when I get my cc bill. LOL. I just love these stamps from Hero Arts and this color card stock from Papertrey Ink paired together.


We are also having a HOP over at Hero Arts Flickr group, be sure to check it out and come hop with us. You will get to see some AMAZINGLY talented ladies! Not to mention, have some fun!! Check it out HERE.

Hope you enjoyed all I had to share today. Oh did you see my new blog banner? What do you think? I love it! I just love Halloween just for the decorations lol ok well the candy too.
