STAMPtember with Simon Says Stamp and Art Impressions

    Guess you thought I fell off the face of the earth.  LOL  Well, my little break from crafting lasted a bit longer than I anticipated, but I'm getting back in the swing of things and what better way to do it than to join in all the fun of Simon Says Stamps STAMPtember celebration.  SSS is celebrating their 10th year of STAMPtember.  WOOHOO!!!

     The new exclusive Art Impressions stamp set from SSS is called Nutty and Nice and is sure to bring some Christmas cheer to your best gal pals.  

     All I can say is they must have some cast iron stomachs.  Fruit cake is NOT my favorite holiday sweet, but they must have found the perfect recipe cause they sure seem to be enjoying it.

You may not like fruit cake but you sure do love to make cards! Haha You did an awesome job on this. I love seeing how all of the different designers colour one image. I am getting SO many ideas to try and what better brand for this than AI's images. They are so fun.

LOL What a fun and fabulous card, my friend! You're coming back with a BANG! :o) My Mom actually made the best fruitcake! It's too much work for me but I sure do miss eating it!
So happy to see you back to crafting. I hope it continues!
