Something Special

Happy December 1st! Can you believe that Christmas is a short 24 days from now??
Wow the year has gone fast!!

**I was honored to be asked by the lovely Cindy Echtinaw to make some cards for her Store.** Cindy owns the Stampingscrapping Store in Alto, MI, USA. Cindy also has the MOST FABULOUS online store I have ever been to! If you need any stamping or scrapping supplies and want the FASTEST service and the BEST PRICES you must go to her store. Talk about SERVICE - it will rock your socks off!!!!

Cindy is now carrying the famous HOUSE MOUSE STAMPS. You can join her new House Mouse Stamp CLUB for 12 months; 6 months; or sign up and buy one a month :o) I have very happily made a couple of Christmas Cards for her store.

The first card is a 'Joy Fold Card' and uses the stamp called ' Lip Smackin' Relaxin'. I have used this stamp before and love it! The second card is an 'Easel Card' and used the stamp called 'Love Bunny'. It was a challenge to make both these stamps into Christmas Cards - hope I have done them well..........
