Tag Tuesday, A Big Thank You, and a CHF Sneak Peek


Lots to get to today, so first up, my tag for the Tag Tuesday #26 challenge.  Louise is starting a "Colors of Christmas" series (how fun is that?), and this week the colors are pink, brown, and burgundy - luscious!!  Pop on over to see Louise's tag, which is soooo pretty, and all the other gals' work.

{Deets on the tag: image from Dover Design Sampler, papers from Paper Temptress, Prima flower, Making Memories chipboard flourishes, flourish and snowflake stamps by Cornish Heritage Farms, Stickles, vintage music from Louise, vintage ribbon from my stash.  Email me if you need more specifics :)}

Next up... a big THANK YOU!!!! to Louise, of Tag Tuesday and Kard Krazy fame!  I was the lucky winner of some fabulous one-of-a-kind blog candy oozing with vintage paper goodness.  Check it out:



Louise, you rock!!  I will have weeks of fun with this! :)

And finally, that sneak peek I promised.... sheesh, this one sneaked up on me big time!  Tomorrow, Cornish Heritage Farms will release a new Scrapblock (those 6 x 6 inch stamps) called Calendar Year.  This one is soooo versatile (I know, I keep saying that about these stamps, but it's true!).  This is one that you scrapbookers in particular will like, because you can cut it up and use it for journaling blocks.  I'm thinking of using the "December" for my December Daily album.  Anyway, enough talk... here's the peek:



This card uses the Calendar Year Scrapblock, along with the Sweet Bee set from The Rummage Bin.

Thanks for sticking with me through this long post!  Hope you're having a great week!
