All in the Family...

We are almost at the end of a few specials for the Month, so this is your last chance to get them.
The Spring Mini Catalogue is coming to an end on the 30th (tomorrow), if there was anything that you wanted, you had best be quick.
All in the Family disappears until April. Don't forget this is the fundraiser for Dave Abbott’s family. So far over 4000 sets have been sold worldwide. All proceeds are going direct to Dave’s family.
The Holiday Thyme papers are still available but only until the 15th of December. These have been my saving grace for beautiful quick Chrissy cards and I dare say I will have to stock up on some more before they are gone for good!!

Speaking of Christmas papers and All in the family...

Here is my latest card combining the two. I wanted the hands to be holding the greeting but since there is only the three of us, we could only hold 'merry'.

I've used:

All in the Family stamp set ( limited release)

Holiday Thyme double sided papers ( limited release)

whimsical lower alphabet

corner rounder

Slit punch

Large oval punch

rich regal buttons and gold cord

all of which are available from Stampin' Up!® and available for purchase through me.

Gorgeous Paper Bows...

Who would have thought a few strips of paper could make something so cute. These paper bows were the result of a recent tutorial on one of my fav sites, splitcoaststampers. You can view the tute here. I'll never buy another ribbon bow again! These are so easy and fun!
I've used some of Stampin' Up!® double sided designer series papers for these, 'Loves me' a sneak peak of the new Summer Mini and the 'Holiday Thyme' which is only available until December 15 so don't miss out!
