Good Morning!
Today I got to do one of my favorite things! I hosted the Inspiration Challenge over on SCS for Stephanie, aka Smilin' Steph on SCS (see her great blog here!!). Big thanks to Ms. Steph for letting me fill in for her again!! I found this great website for the inspiration pieces: Whimsy Press. I LOVE their stuff! Here's the page of papers everyone was directed to for inspiration: Holiday Wrap Sheets. For my sample, I chose this sheet because of the great color combo! Don't you just love the bright retro colors??!! I wouldn't have come up with these for a holiday card, so I was anxious to give it a try. Honestly, I was not very excited about the card I ended up coming up with, but I ran out of time and didn't get a chance to make another before posting last night.
Anyhow, it's a great start to a stamping day! I finished my Christmas shopping yesterday (wooo hooo!) and today the plan is to finish my Christmas cards!! What are the odds??
Thanks for stopping by!
