Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop Week 24

I love joining in with the other team members from Art With Heart whenever time allows, and I have something worth sharing. Recently I was reading the blog of Angie Juda, also known as Chic And Scratch. In 2015 she became a Stampin' Up! Million Dollar seller and was able to design a stamp set to celebrate. Her stamp set is Bella and Friends, which I love and have used for many occasions. Like many Stampin' Up! demonstrators, Angie shares her creativity freely and the gift bag she made had Bella wearing a Santa hat! Oh, that's way too cute!

Santa's hat is from the Santa's Suit stamp and fits Bella's head perfectly. Santa's Suit is another of the very cute stamp sets on offer in the Holiday catalogue, and you are able to dress Santa in a couple of different ways. It is also available in a bundle with the matching dies for a 10% discount on the total, or the dies and stamps can be purchased separately.

At the beginning of October, for 10 days there were some new-release stamps at a discount too. They were part of suites which included patterned paper (DSP) which was on special for the whole of October. If you want to be kept informed of these promotions, make sure you sign up to either my newsletter or your demonstrator's newsletter. Demonstrators get to take advantage of these specials too, so I bought the Brightly Lit Christmas stamp. I might not have bought it otherwise as I haven't any plans to use it in a class, although if you'd like an in-home party, we could make one of these cards with your guests.

I didn't want my cat-loving friends to say I was favouring dogs, so I've made a feline version too. This stamp set is Pretty Kitty, and I do love this one too. Which is your favourite, the dog or the cat? And is that only because that is your preferred pet?
