Seriously, Oh my goodness!  I could not be more excited to participate! 
I absolutely love Christmas.  Without a doubt, Christmas is my favorite time of year. 
Therefore, it's no surprise that it's also one of my favorite seasons to craft for.  

We each created a card featuring one of the digital sentiments, which are always available on the Paper Crafts Magazine website, right here.  
I paired some adorable paper by My Mind's Eye from the Winter Wonderland 6x6 pad and some white glitter cardstock with my favorite Paper Smooches holiday set, Swanky Snowdudes.  Topped it off with some twine and the perfect sentiment!  It just makes me happy and definitely inspires me to go bake some gingerbread men.  How about you?

I imagine some seriously yummy hot cocoa in that adorable little cottage, don't you?

Paper Smooches Sparks September Trend Watch



It's time for this week's Paper Smooches Sparks challenge. 
The first week of the month is the trend watch challenge!
 Here is this week's trend watch photo: 

I had SO much fun creating this weeks card.  Hello Retro! 

I totally had to grab my Squeaky Clean set for this week.  I'm not a huge ironing fan.  I love wrinkle free.  We own an iron and use it maybe once a year only for heat transfer projects. :)  Therefore, I made this iron retro fab!

Here's my card: 

Lots of my favorite patterned papers (there are SO many great 6x6 pads out right now, I'm in heaven!), some adorable washi tapes, a handmade button, bakers twine and a white gel pen again.  Sigh, this card makes me happy!

I used the following Paper Smooches stamps: 
Squeaky Clean: Iron & Sentiment

Be sure to stop by the rest of the Paper Smooches Sparks DT members blogs to see what they've created and leave them some love. 

This weeks Sparks challenge ends September 9th so get stamping!  
Can't wait to see what you create!
