LPS Monday: A Caroling we Go...


Can you believe it's Monday already??

I sure can't! We had a nice, relaxing weekend at home-didn't do much but at the same time did a TON around the house. You know what kind of weekend I mean, right?! We cleaned and reorganized the boys' room after only living here a month and a half, if that tells you anything, LOL! I baked with the kids, we rented movies, had some takeout, and just kind bummed around the rest of the time. Gotta catch up on that must-see TV now that the Fall lineup is back....yeah!

I DID manage to sneak in some stamping time, too! Made about 6 cards this weekend so that was fun. We are very fortunate to have had our new neighbors move in nextdoor to us and they have 3 kids similar in age...SO nice for the kids. So they spent a fun afternoon playing while Mom snuck in some stamping. Gotta love it, right?

I am REALLY excited to show you my Little Paper Shop card today, and we have a preview from our October release which is early this month! In honor and celebration of World Cardmaking day, our October release is THIS Saturday, the 3rd! So we have some peeks for you today and then later in the week, too :)There are FOUR Holiday sets being released this month, and the first one I have to show you today is called {Caroler}. How sweet is she?! When I realized that my beloved Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly Mini-Deck had music DP, I was sold on what I'd make my card with! I love this new stamp and I think you will, too.

Be sure to check out the LPS Blog for all the info on our Sketch Challenge (shown above)this week and to find out how YOU can win this cute {Caroler} stamp!

We also have some fun announcements to make today. After a FANTASTIC 3 months as our LPS Guest Designer, we just couldn't let Ann Kranitz get away from us! We are thrilled and honored that she has accepted a position as full time Designer starting October 1st. WELCOME ANN!

You know what that means? We have a NEW Guest Designer for LPS and she has already wowed us playing our weekly challenges and I couldn't be more EXCITED to welcome PAM VARNELL as our Guest Designer for the next 3 months! YAY Pam!

Well, with all that excitement, you can only imagine how cute these previews are going to be! Don't forget to stop by the LPS Blog, and if you want to play along with us this week, use keyword LPSC35. Be sure to leave some love for our FANTASTIC DT while you're visiting:

Last but not least, my "Cousin/BFF" as I believe she calls it Kim has a BIRTHDAY TODAY!!!!!!! HAPPY , HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIM!!!!! She has recently started a blog as I kind of well, infected her w/ the stamping bug a long time ago and I would be tickled if you visited and sent her a birthday shout-out! MISS YOU! ENJOY YOUR DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks SO much for visiting and I'll see you tomorrow with some Greeting Farm peeks as well! This blog is BUSY this week....I'm always glad and grateful to have you here with me on this wild ride! xoxo~
