{9.14.2012} Something special to share – and a giveaway

Joyful Greetings.

Paper Smooches will release their newest stamp set called Joyful Greetings on September 15th and I am here today to help promote this sweet set!  Ordinarily a new “Kismet” stamp set is released on the 15th, but this month they wanted to offer a Christmas theme sentiment set to compliment the sets that will release on October 1st.  You will find the new stamp set HERE.  Ready for a look???

So perfect, right???  I adore all the great holiday season sayings.  Big ones, small ones, stacked ones and even that little heart.  I can’t wait to use them all.  But for today, I had to pick one and I picked to use my favorites first.

I like to use unique sayings for my cards and I fell in love with the glad tidings immediately.  I paired it with hot concoctions for a fun hot cocoa like Christmas card.  A perfect theme card that could easily be paired with someone’s favorite coffee shop gift card.  To add a little texture, the dark brown cardstock is embossed with some snowflakes and the whipped cream has a little sparkle.  All the sentiments included are perfect for the holidays and for other occasions.  Plus, you can always find the perfect Paper Smooches image to go with them.

A great big THANKS to Paper Smooches for allowing me to share this fabulous set with YOU.   I have one Joyful Greetings stamp set to give away to one lucky person!  You have until midnight on September 16th to leave a comment.  I will post the winner here on Monday, September 17th.
