Another Little Peek...

The New Year holiday is one that I don't think gets enough stamping attention. How 'bout you?

Michelle Bertuzzi (Jiroken) has designed a stamp set that takes care of that AND goes one step further!

A Little Peek...

Hello friends! The "Festive Season" is here... how did that happen?! It's just now dawning on me that I should be making a list, doing some decorating, and thinking about shopping. Thankfully, we have a little extra time this year with Thanksgiving falling earlier in November. So no panicking! :)

You might be wondering if The Craft's Meow is having a December release, and the answer is YES! Once again, we are releasing SEVEN new stamp sets, and today I'm giving you a little peek of two of them designed by the fabulous Nina B Designs!!!

I hope you'll stop by tomorrow for more sneak peeks... ;)
