Taylored Expressions Release Party!

Today is the day you can get your mittens on 3 new fabulous stamp sets from Taylored Expressions - Christmas Blessings, Wings of Joy, and now today I'm showing you a small snippet of Holiday Wonder. This set is just darling - I love that Cuppie is back showing his Christmas spirit along with many other images that will make so many diverse cards for your friends and family this season.

I'm a sucker for snowmen, so it seemed only natural to grab this image first and ink him up! I added a little Christmas Red and Diamond Stickles to the scarf and hat so he looks a little more "Magical". The paper and ribbon come from the Christmas Key Ingredients and will also be available in the Very Merry Christmas Bundle - You can see a photo of all the fun items in this bundle on Taylor's blog.

Taylored Expressions is having a huge sale on the 2008 Christmas stamp sets, Season's Sweetings and Home Sweet Home- they are available for 25% off from October 3rd - October 5th!
