The most wonderful time of the year...

Hello there!

Exciting news everyone! After a much too long hiatus due to complications brought on by the pandemic Dreamerland Crafts is finally back with their first new release in over a year. I have missed seeing new characters added to the lineup, bringing with them all sorts of new story telling opportunities for my cards. The Christmas and Fall Characters collection can already be found at Simon Says Stamp and for my first card of the new release I've inked up these two Christmas cuties called Happiness is Time Spent with a Good Friend. Right away I fell in love with this little gal, all dressed up for the Christmas party. I can just imagine her excitement as family and friends laugh and mingle all around her. With so much going on and the hour growing late she finds herself a quite window seat where she is joined by her beloved kitty. Together they bask in the love and good spirits that fill their home on this Christmas Eve. To help bring that vision to life I also grabbed the WC Mini Cabins stamp set from Art Impressions to add the hint of the snow covered neighborhood outside the window. I can't tell you how much fun I had creating this card and I can't wait to ink up more of these new stamps!
