A Christmas Story

Good morning to you all!  Today we are previewing some of the fabulous Christmas stamps shortly to be released at Crafty Sentiments.  I have had the pleasure of working with "A Christmas Story":

I thought I would go with some un-traditional Christmas Colours and love these from Raspberry Road "Shabby Flakes".  I coloured A Christmas Story with Copics and added some Stickles.  The poinsettia and leaves are a Marianne die.  I have used Memory Box Precious Stars.  The pearls and ribbon are from my stash.  The sentiment is years and years old comes from a set I bought from QVC.

If you go over to the Crafty Sentiments Inspirational Blog you can see some more fabulous designs! One lucky winner will receive a Christmas parcel containing four of the new stamps and each day we will be awarding a two month Guest Design Team Spot!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Christmas Stampin' - Seeing Stars
Simply Create Too - Christmas in July
Aud Sentiments - Two Words
Shelly's Images - Christmas in July
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - Cute and Cuddly + None traditional colours
Creative Belli - Stars

Thank you so much for coming by today! See you tomorrow, take care xx
