very merry Christmas by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Monday!
Last week I shared a Halloween card with this same house image but today I am sharing a Christmas card using the Ai 4926- Holiday Mansion Set and 4927- HM Accessory Set.  If you haven't started your holiday cards, it's a good time to start thinking about them!  I like to make a few here and there, all year long, but this year I haven't followed that plan very well. lol.  I did create this sweet holiday house, though.
Here's a little tip...if you stamp an extra house and trim it a bit smaller (cutting off the chimney), then flip it over and use the backside, you can place it behind your finished house image so the background paper doesn't show through.

The little Christmas images from the 4927- HM Accessory Set were added in the windows and doors.  I decided to place the tree in the yard instead of a window.  You can move the pieces to wherever you want!

Have a great Monday and… happy stamping!

It's STAMPtember!! with Art Impressions and Simon Says Stamp by Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!!

What an exciting day this is!!

It's release day at Art Impressions and Simon Says Stamp.  
Here it is...the EXCLUSIVE Ai Girlfriends stamp available only at Simon Says Stamp.

The set is called To Perfection 4970E

You need to act fast.  Supplies are limited and when they're gone, they're gone forever!  If you're anything like me you NEED this stamp.  Two of my favorite things are wine and cheese and MANY of my friends feel the same.

I was feeling very black and white and geometric the morning I made this card.
Isn't the sentiment that comes with the ladies just perfect for your friends?  I'm actually thinking this image will be perfect for my mom's birthday in October.
