Happy Holidays and Sad Farewells....


Hey!

The day is here! The sneaky peeks from The Craft's Meow October Release we've been showing you the past week are now available to view in full, and purchase!

The Craft's meow

We're celebrating the new release in the traditional TCM way with a blog hop and a chance for you to win the entire release! You should have hopped here from the TCM Blog.

For my blog hop card I combined three sets - I surprised myself with that. Ha!

Happy Holidays

This card features a fab, distressed sentiment from Holiday Foundations; some funky retro snowflakes from Christmas Cheer and some trees from the set that's free with a $50 spend at the TCM Store this month, O Christmas Tree (designed by myself!)

The smaller tree is simply a larger tree trimmed down - easy peasy! I really do have a soft spot for the chevron tree even though there are many other designs to stamp from the set. Just don't tell the other trees in the set, OK? *wink*

In order to qualify for the chance to win the entire October release, be sure to comment on every blog in the hop. Next up is the super Elizabeta Kushner so hop across there for more inspiration!

Now I don't like to end my blog posts on a sad note, but after an amazing 7 months with The Craft's Meow it's now time for me leave. :( I'd like to take the opportunity to thank the whole of the TCM DT (both past and present) for being so fun, fabulous and supportive. I'd also like to extend a HUGE thank you to Lisa, who had so much faith in my designs. I would never have been able to have achieved my dream of designing my own stamp set and getting it manufactured without you, thank you so much! You made this inky gal's dream come true and I'll never forget it :) 

Catch ya later!
