Hello and thanks for stopping by today.
This weekend I was busy working with the last of my stamps from In2Stamps’ May Release. By the end of this week, a new release with 14 new stamps will become available. I hope you haven’t missed out on the Sneak Peaks and your chance of winning the stamps. Here are the latest sneak previews: – please click the images to get taken directly to the Blog Candy Draws.
Aren’t they simply adorable? These are all by my favorite In2Stamps Illustrator Daria of Anako Art. As you can see, the new release has got Christmas Stamps. Yay! Already yesterday though, I chose to make a Christmas Card (my second this year) with the stamp “Moon Girl” from the May Release. There’s just something very special about Daria’s Designs, or what do you think about this cutie?

The Silent Night notes I downloaded from the Internet, cropped & resized. I then distressed the paper with “Faded Jeans” and the edges with “Walnut Stain”. I got this great idea from one of my most frequent visitors, Sue. Thanks Sue; you’re saving me a lot of money on DPs! To the image background I added greyish chalk (unfortunately one can’t see it very well in the picture), and then I applied Stickles Stardust glue dots to it.
