Christmas is coming

I have been so totally pre-occupied with the snow that I have completely forgotten to post about the chicken soup 12 days of Christmas challenge. Every day, for 12 days, starting from the 1st, the chicken soup blog will post some cool Christmas inspiration.

Sounds good? I thought so.

Day 2 was Christmas cards, and for me of course it had to be snowmen ... I mean really!

Then tomorrow (or today rather, it seems pumpkin time has come and gone and I am up late again .... yawn), the new Craft Stamper magazine is on the shelves. The January issue

We are totally snowed under and there is no way I can even get my car out of the garage, so I shall walk to the High Street and get my copy in the morning. Then I shall also buy myself a big slab of chocolate, come home and read my magazine while I drink the compulsory cup of tea and of course scoff the chocolate. I can do that now because it is snowing, and if it is snowing we are allowed to indulge in comfort food.

For this issue I have made a card for the designer palette feature using the really cute little dude stamps from Waltzing Mouse. They aren't really called little dudes (it is just always the first words that spring to mind when I look at them), but Half Pint Heroes and are adorable. I won these stamps in a blog challenge and couldn't wait to use them.

This is my new favourite stamp company. I LOVE Waltzing Mouse stamps and Claire, the owner, is not only super kind but ever so talented. I bet I am preaching to the converted, but if by chance you don't know of WMS, have a look at Claire's blog here.

Of course I am not allowed to show you the card I made, but I guess it is okay if I just put up a little sneak peek. 

I have also done some cards with polka dots, and of course there is all of the regular goodness associated with Craft Stamper magazine.
