Noel, Noelle....

Hiya peeps!

It's been QUITE a week for me- with two of my most favorite stamp companies having releases that kicked off this past Monday....at The Greeting Farm and at Stamping Bella!

I am SOOOO not a 'rush Christmas' kinda girl.  To be truthful, Christmas in July challenges drive me a bit batty and I've even been known to get slightly irritated when I see lights going up before Thanksgiving...I don't know...I guess, to me, there is so much beauty in BOTH those seasons/holidays, I hate to rush into it.  We all know that I'm also not a fan of COLD, LOL!  Perhaps that, too, is why, but I am reminded each August/September that the stamping world, and even more so the craft publishing world, has to be 3 steps ahead....

...well, today I have a card that is part of the new release- the MEGA release (29 new stamps!!!!) at Stamping Bella.  Introducing NOELLE BEARING GIFTS:

... is she NOT the cutest?

I had a TON of fun stamping and chit-chatting with one of my bestest girls in the world, Pam Varnell this weekend and really enjoyed coloring her up w/ my Copics!   I just got the new 6x6 stack of My Mind's Eye Christmas paper, too- so I used like colors and it was a perfect match!   Wouldn't you welcome this cutie knocking on your door?

I'll be back tomorrow with a VERY fun and jam-packed day...so thanks as always for stopping by, I really love that you do!

xoxo,

She is so very sweet! I love her lil coat and boots! Adorable card :)
At the store yesterday, in the same 2 aisles, all THREE holidays were mixed in together, ugh!!! Nothing is more annoying than having Christmas lights hanging over a screeching witch standing next to a stuffed Turkey doll, seriously! LOL!
Have a wonderful Wednesday :)
hugs, margie

Jess, this is BEAUTIFUL! She is absolutely darling!

And me, too.... I HATE seeing Christmas stuff before Thanksgiving!

She looks so pretty now that this beauty is on a card. Great color choice too. Add in the fab sewing and the pretty rhinestones and you have one beauty of a card. Love it sweetie!!!

Hugs,
Pam
