'Tis The Season to SHOP!

Today I'm sharing a sneaky peek of the all new Retail Therapy Simply Sassy stamp that will be available TOMORROW exclusively at Funky Kits! I loved this one as soon as I saw her! I mean, how chic is she with all her fun packages and cute little ear muffs. She was an absolute blast to color and I can see paper piecing those packages for another fun look. I can't wait for the hop tomorrow - You are going to LOVE these new stamps! :D I kept the design simple as I'm finally following in one of Jen's Deconstructed Sketch challenges! I've been stalking them and finally got to fit one in. I love her sketches. I also tried out my new Spellbinders Snowflake Impressibility plate - I found it at Hobby Lobby for just $4.00 but it didn't really show up on the thicker silver card stock....I need to play with them some more - they really are beautifully intricate designs! I loved digging out these older TGF holiday papers from my stash. I've been hoarding them long enough! I love the bright greens and pinks and red for Christmas - a funky spin on traditional holiday colors.
