Paper Sweeties November Release Sneak Peeks

Hello Monday! I have been so ultra busy since our hurricane friend came blowing into town, you may or may not know that the pharmacy that I work in was completely flooded and destroyed by the storm. I have been working out of a satellite pharmacy until the original store can be restored, which means that I'm working a lot of extra hours to help my customers attain the medications they need. Needless to say, this has diminished my crafting time which in the scope of things, is a minor consequence, but I have to say that crafting does keep me sane. :) However, tonight I had some time to put together a Mojo Monday card and I thought that since the Paper Sweeties' are getting ready to peek some new stamps in the coming days (starting tonight), I would do a 'pre-peek' of some cute Christmas stamps:

I pulled out some vintage Melissa Frances papers and shabbed them up a bit more with a paper distresser. The perimeter edges are sewn and I added a length of antique lace and some sweet satin ribbon from Stampin' Up! I cut some stars out of cardboard and covered them in White Gold glitter. The sentiment is from Paper Sweeties, this set called 'Sending Christmas Cheer'. In about 2 hours I'll have another post showcasing Abigail in a darling little angel outfit.

Here's the sketch for Mojo Monday:

Thanks so much for stopping by...I have posts scheduled the rest of the week, but I don't know how much posting I'll be doing in the coming months until my work status gets a bit back to normal. Hopefully that will be soon! (And hopefully I can eek out a bit more crafting time!)
