Hello strangers!  I apologize I have not blogged or posted any videos in a couple weeks.  It has been crazy here in the Velasquez household with birthdays, out of town trips, the stomach flu, and a huge remodeling.  My head is spinning but I have missed paper crafting and had to get some stamping in over the holiday weekend or BUST!

Can you believe I also missed blogging about the release of the new holiday catalog?!?!  Well the card I created for this week’s Mojo Monday challenge uses one of my favorite stamp sets from the holiday catalog – Thankful Forest Friends.  This stamp set has some of the cutest critters and I have been itching to get creating with this set.  

This card features not only the new stamp set but new coordinating DSP called Into The Woods. 

I tried a technique I learned at SU convention for applying glitter to cards and I’m on the fence about how it turned out.  I think I might have got a little crazy with the glitter but that’s what happens when you don’t stamp for a couple weeks.  GLITTER EXPLOSION!  

What do you think?  Too much glitter or are you more of the type where there is never enough glitter?

The new holiday catalog launched on September 1st and I’m wondering….do you have your very own copy??  If not, I’d love to be your demonstrator and send you this amazing catalog.  Send me an email with your address and information so I can get one of these babies out to you ASAP.  

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
