Stampin' Up! Reason for the Season Collection

Hi Stampin' Friends!!

So sorry I've been away so long!! It's been a crazy couple of weeks. 
First, I'm still getting acclimated to working M-F. Then my hubs needed emergency surgery to remove his gall bladder (He just had his two week check-up today and he's been cleared to surf. It's the important stuff. ;) ). Plus we are knee-deep in girl's water polo season. And there is this big holiday quickly approaching that I'm trying to get ready for.

I had to let a few things slide for awhile and blogging was one of them. But I need to share my Reason for the Season cards I created for my December card of the month class. I don't have time to write out all of the instructions, but if you have any questions, please email or text me. You all are pretty smart stampers and I'm guessing you can figure them out by just looking at the photos. So here they are...





I really love this stamp set. So glad it will still be available through May 31st. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you saw that I used this set for a few different activities I that I attended this month. Enjoy the card kits and have fun stamping them!!

I will be back on January 5th to announce my 2016 monthly online classes. So be sure to check it our and see if there are any stamp sets you were planning on purchasing. When you purchase a stamp set through my online class you will receive a card kit for FREE!!

I hope you all have a blessed Christmas. I love the sentiment that comes with the All Ye Faithful stamp set: "May the wonder of that first Christmas, the joy of God's abundant blessings, and the peace of the Lord be with you always."

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

I love this little scene. It's like you are sitting in your cozy, warm house. Looking out into the cold, glittery snow. Enjoying the adorable snowmen you just built with your kids. Maybe you are even sipping some hot cocoa with marshmallows. Isn't that a sweet holiday thought?!

Of course I'm a SoCal girl, so thought of being out in the freezing, cold snow is a little overwhelming to me. I like the idea of a white Christmas but not the reality of it. Of course I will never turn down a cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows. :)

Have you ever thought os joining one of my Online Stamp classes? You should!! I love giving my customers little surprises with their card kits. This month everyone received their own container of Nordic Designer buttons.


I love spoiling my customers when I can. :)
