Santa's Little Helper Says Seasons Greetings!



It's Day Two of previews of the brand new releases from


Today we share two more wonderful sets with you
and the first is from the most talented Maree Truelove.



This sweet set is called 'Santa's Little Helper'
and has some pretty fun elements.
I pulled out my Copics and got to work.
I love the glittered letters from KI Memories
and they were the perfect fit for this card.


Many thanks to my husband Paul, who worked
for several years in my stamp store and knew
a thing or two about card making.  He felt
that there was something 'missing' and then
suggested that I make the elf's tights sparkly
too, so out came the Stickles!

The next preview is from one of two new
sets from my friend Nina of NinaB Designs.



'Seasons Greetings' is a beautiful collection
with a vintage feel.
When I edited my photos, my white balancing took
out a bit too much of the green shading just behind
the sentiment (at least on my end).


The beautiful designer paper is older from Foo-fa-la,
but I love how it goes so well with this design.
I grabbed some of my favorite hand-dyed seam binding
from my friend Nancy at Sugar Lump Studios.

I am so glad you popped by today....
We have SEVEN...SEVEN
brand new sets coming your way!

Make sure you stop over at the
because there's a great giveaway going on
for both of these sets.
