Woo Hoo!

My October set from The {Stamps} of Life were waiting for me in my mailbox last night & I actually was able to break them open & stamp with them on the first night! That hasn't happened FOREVER!
It's called penguins4christmas & has a ton of cute stamps & sentiments! I used foam squares to add the stack of prezzies so that the edge of my joy fold card would rest underneath to stay closed & the present he is holding is on a foam dot too. The fluffy bow on top of it is a prima flower folded in half & trimmed a little w/ a brad added.

Here is the inside. The frame is a {Stamps} of Life also-it was a fun freebie Stephanie added in w/ a set a couple months back & the sentiment is from this month's set. I know I've said it a bunch, but I just LOVE being club member!

I am entering on the following challenges:
Catch the Bug, Anything goes
Card Making Mama's, Fancy folds
ABC Challenge, A: Anything goes
Make it Monday, Anything goes

The weather here has taken a nasty turn to the cold side... so I am hoping to get to cuddle up with a nice warm fire & have a little craft time tonight!
