Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas!

Hello, hello!

I'm so excited to be joining Jenny at Sister Stamps as a guest for this month's new holiday release! I've been a big fan of these darling stamps since they first debuted so when Jenny asked if I could join the fun this go round it's not like she had to twist my arm at all. :)

For my first card out I used sweet little Setsuna, or Calm Snow, and he is dressed up as that jolly old elf... Santa Claus! I really love the energy and movement of this little guy, I can really feel his excitement for Christmas. I thought it would be funny to add that strip of paper with the reindeer behind him, kinda like it could be a backdrop in his Christmas pageant or something. You just know that Setsuna would be a total ham in front of an audience, Ho Ho Ho-ing as loud as he can for all to hear. ;)

And if you would like a chance to win Setsuna before you can buy him then simply head on over to the Sister Stamps blog and leave a comment here before September 30th. Then mark your calendars for October 1st because that is when all three of the new stamps will be available for purchase... giving all you good girls and boys plenty of time to make some fun Christmas cards with these cuties!

TTFN!
