Getting Ready to Say Goodbye to 2013 . . .

Hi Stampers!

Well, here we are at the end of another year.  I hope yours was a good one, and I wish you "enough" in 2014:

". . . enough rain that you enjoy the sunshine; enough sorrow that you treasure your happiness; enough joy to overshadow your pain . . . "

That's not an exact quote, but I read something recently along those lines, and so I simply wish you "enough" :)

I'll be back on January 1st with another blog series, in which I'll feature three of my FAVORITE stamp sets - Perfect Blend, Gorgeous Grunge, and Tape It.  I'm challenging myself to come up with 31 projects that will primarily use stamps from these sets:

Perfect Blend
WM 130745, $13.95
CM 131392, $10.95

Gorgeous Grunge
WM 130514, $24.95
CM 130517, $17.95

Tape It
WM 130712, $26.95
CM 130715, $18.95

. . . aaaaaannnnnd just for fun, here's a card I did right before Christmas, for my mother-in-law.  Husband wanted a card with some "slits" in it to put folded bills in, and asked if I had a sleigh stamp.  I didn't - until the Clearance Rack Blitz.  (Have you checked it out yet?  NO??  Oh my gosh.  Get OVER there!!  TONS of goodies!!  Click here to shop.)  He actually came up with the idea of putting the slits in the sleigh so it looks like Santa's bringing some money (isn't he clever??).  This turned out so cute I plan to use the idea for my Christmas Calendar Club next December.  One thing I did forget to do though - he wanted me to hand-letter it to read, "HO HO HO, it's off to the casino we go . . . ".  Oh well - still darn adorable:

 
 
Stop back soon and check out my January Blog Series - til then . . .
 
Happy stampin'!
