3 October 2011 – Simply Stockings!!

Can you believe that it’s almost time to start planning for Christmas!!  I was asked at work recently to think about what leave I wanted to take over Christmas.  It’s too early to think about yet!!!!!

Stampin’ Up! have a great promotion for the month of October.  You can purchase the stamp set – Stitched Stockings and the matching punch – early before the next mini catalogue is released or you can earn it for free when you host a workshop and have over $450 in sales.  How exciting is that!!!

Seeing as I am in denial about Christmas coming so quickly, here’s a card that I made that I cased from here for a stamping friend who had a baby recently.
