Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I hope you are all staying warm and enjoying the holiday preparations.  Today I have some major baking and shopping to do and then I am done!!!  Woo hoo!  The weather here is CHILLY with lots of heavy winds. YUCK!

Anywho! I have something fun for you today!!  I get to play Santa with some blog candy!!  Please bear with me as this is a long post.

I am absolutely so very lucky to serve on Design Teams with such sweet and talented people. My dear friend Lacey who owns Stamp & Create is giving each of her DT members a blog candy to help celebrate Christmas! Isn’t she so generous and sweet?!!!  I am so excited to be sharing mine today!!!

Lacey has a huge selection of stamps from a variety of companies including Whiff of Joy, Kraftin Kimmie, Penny Black, CC designs, Sweet Pea, Wild Rose Studio, Wags n Whiskers, Stampavie, Greeting Farm and the list goes on and on!!  She also carries designer papers, embellishments, ribbon (including May Arts Silk) and nestabilities!!
