A Christmas Tree Hunting We Will Go

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today is the last day of Heather Telford and The Foiled Fox Holiday Traditions event 😕. We have had a blast reading all your awesome comments and traditions – thank you so much. I know for me, I have been inspired to add a few more traditions to our holiday!

To wrap up our event, in the next few days we will be randomly selecting two names from all you lovely commenting people to win a $30 gift certificate at our online store. So, cross your fingers, and maybe your toes too – and keep your eyes peeled for the winners, maybe it will be you!

Now, on to sharing our last tradition. This tradition reaches back to my early days of cutting down our own tree in the mountains. The stamp set is from a super cute Cool Christmas stamp and dies set by My Favorite Things. The four crazy snowmen in the car remind me of my four brothers – and they are just as crazy!

Hello To Autumn Leaves

Hi Crafty Friends,

Are you seeing signs of Autumn yet? Here at home in the San Francisco area, we are just now getting a few cooler days and light breezes. It is a welcome change from the unusually hot summer we’ve had. The slight change in weather and the new “Lovely Leaves” stamp and die set by Ink To Paper, inspired this Autumn card design.

By the way, we are lovin’ the Ink To Paper collection. Check them all out here.
