Jesus-The Reason for the Season

Hi Friends!
I am sharing a clean and simple card today that I created and mass produced when I realized I didn't make enough cards throughout the year.  I was short about 50.  YIKES!!!  Thankfully, my MISTI came in handy and made creating these a breeze.

I used the wreath stamp from the stamp set Wonderful Wreath by Catherine Pooler Designs.  This set was part of the Stamp of Approval Lovely Notes Collection.  I stamped it twice to make a fuller wreath.  The berries are from the stamp set Merry & Bright also by Catherine Pooler and is part of the Stamp of Approval Candy Cane Lane collection.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.  I couldn't capture it in the photo, but the "Jesus" die is sparkly.  :)

I am adding this card over at Christmas Card Challenges.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Hi everyone!  I have some exciting news to share with you today.  Catherine Pooler's Foundations Box that was recently launched and sold out in 15 hours will be back in stock real soon and ready for shipping next week!  Just in time for you to purchase as a gift for a special loved one or even for yourself.  WOOT!!!!

She also has a great new Holiday wrap-up bundle.  Perfect to finish up your holiday cards (inside and out) tags, and thank you notes for after the holiday craziness.  You can purchase each of the items individually or in a bundle at a discounted price.

Here’s a list of the products included in this mini release:

I decided to make a set of Thank you notes using the Holiday Mittens stamp set and coordinating die along with the Still Smiling stamp set.

I used the 4 different color ink pads that were released by Catherine in the Foundations Box.  The different patterns on the mittens are so adorable.  Love!!!

I even stamped and coordinated the envelopes.

Here they are all packaged up in a clear box with a cute mitten tag. 

I plan to make up another set of these and give them as gifts to my family.

Catherine has also put together some great gift ideas for the paper crafter in your life in her Paper Crafter's Gift Guide.   Or, you can also just share the link to the gift collection in her shop with your partner so YOU can get some awesome crafty goodness for the holidays, too!

Orders placed by no later than December 19 should arrive by Christmas on U.S. orders, but I would definitely recommend ordering sooner rather than later to ensure it arrives on time!

See that Friendship Bracelet- If you don’t know the story behind these bracelets, please go read about it HERE! The bracelets comes free in the Foundations Box but Catherine wanted to make sure all of you had a chance to purchase one if you’d like so they are now for sale at the shop.  I am planning on purchasing a few of these to give to friends and family.  :)

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
