Snowflake Serenade Hostess Gift...
This is a goodies package I had gotten in the mail on Friday from a secret nominator in the Hostess Appreciation Swap, I had no idea there even was such a thread happening over on SCS. One of my Swappers from the Papertrey Swaps, we are now in round 3 if you would like to swap with us please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Nominated me for Hostess. Yesterday this gift arrived in the mail and it contained Paper Trey Snowflake Serenade stamp set, handmade bracelet that contained images from Papeyrtre Believe shrunken on shrink plastic and made into a charm, some Believe stamped images and a beautiful handmade box for the bracelet. How kind and generous is this, I am amazed with the beauty of souls I have come in contact with through these swaps. It is supposed to be anonymous but I have figured out who sent it and have sent a digital thank you, I will not announce who it is here they are going to remain anonymous to others. So thank you again _______ I love your kindness you have showed and I also thank you for being in my swaps you make awesome cards.
This is a card I have made with the new stamp set it is a CASE from PTI's ink pad for Snowflake Serenade
Now I have one little rant to get off of my chest yesterday I was watching a commercial for Wal-mart and here is the slogan they ran at the end of it, "Save more so you can give more Christmas." I about fell out of my chair, so YOU can give more Christmas. Christmas was given to us when Jesus was born and at Christmas time we give to remember this event and bring joy to others. So frustrated with mass retail and the spend more, save more give more mentality. What is that teaching us, our children? So remember as you are making your Christmas cards, and your crafts the real reason behind your creativity the simple fact that Jesus is the reason for the season.
