CTMH Punny Pals and Beary Christmas

CTMH Punny Pals meets Beary Christmas - stamplifted this adorable design from Gail!

I absolutely fell in love with this card when I saw Gail Gross first shared it last week. I often tweak a card to make it my own, but not this time! It’s so cute how she used the santa hat from CTMH’s Beary Christmas for scrapbooking stamp set. It fits perfectly on all the little critters in CTMH’s Operation Smile set – Punny Pals.

The most exciting part is this month we’re celebrating Share a Smile and CTMH is matching all funds raised for Operation Smile through the sale of Punny Pals. PLUS, they are offering a matching die set for those of you who like to skip the fussy cutting! tee hee…

Snow or Sun?!?

I just love these fun little tags I made at our recent tag shoebox swap and mitten exchange…did you see the mittens here?  It got me to thinking, since we live in Northern VA and for Christmas, we just never know what kind of weather we will have!  Do you prefer snow or sun for your Christmas?

Annual Mitten Swap

Last night I held my annual Mitten Swap (we use a retired Amuse Studio die) with a group of friends.  This year was so much fun since we did a  hors d’oeuvres style potluck, enjoyed some wine and had a tag swap too!

Here is a group shot of all the mittens – it’s such fun mix of styles!

My photo doesn’t do Jeanette’s colored pencil skills justice!  We all want her to give us a class on her techniques – they were all so wonderful!
