It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like ...



Christmas ... at Pink Petticoat ... in July! I know!!! I don't think I've ever been so organised!

I have a lot of new Christmas ideas to share with you this year. I like to offer you a lot of choice at Christmas. It is the biggest card-making event in the calendar after all. And, I know there are quite a lot of crafters who only ever make cards for Christmas. Those of you who, ssshhhh, buy cards throughout the year, but love to add hand-crafted Christmas cards to your seasonal creative projects every year. And, like many other full-time card-makers, you like to get started right about now.

So, although I still have some other non-Christmas goodies that I'll be adding to the Boutique during the next few weeks, I thought it would be nice to at least make a bit of a start showing you my new Christmas designs for this year. In July : )

And to get us off to the most fabulous start, I thought I'd do a GiveAway too! I'm going to give 3 of the first new Christmas goodies away ... for free! There's a sneak peek in the photo above. And yes, you're right, it IS a set of new Image Stamps.

If you would like to win one of them, simply leave a comment below, here on the blog. Or on the Pink Petticoat Facebook page. I'll enter each comment into a draw and 3 lucky random winners, will each win the new set. I'll select and announce the winners here on the blog on Friday, 4th July, as they go live on the web site.

Just one comment per person please! Thank you.
