Holiday Mini Swaps

I got some really great swaps back from the CQ (Convention quality) swap with GWTWJunkie Lyssa. I can't wait to show you on Tuesday! Meanwhile, while at Convention, another swap with the same group of ladies was born for the Holiday mini (with 'Peama' Donna as host). So, with my ridiculous addiction, I couldn't resist. My new stamps were arriving on Tuesday, I was home very early Thursday morning, and the swap needed to go out by Friday. Well, it is Monday, and they are finally done. I had to pause to do a grueling 40-mile mountain bike race in the extreme heat yesterday, but that's another story!

This stamp set is called Wandering Words. I love the Santa in the sky image - has always been my favorite from a child. My favorite book, which I could recite by heart, was 'Twas the Night before Christmas. I couldn't resist!

Some fabulous ladies were signed up for another group in the same swap, so I had to throw my name in that hat too! The Wandering Words stamp is used on the pull-out. I paired it with a Fall Branch Out tree to get the feel that leaves were blowing off the tree.

Here is a view of the pull-out.

All the details are on my SCS gallery. Thanks for looking!

I can't wait to order the Wandering Words set, and I want to use the Christmas one just as you did (although perhaps not as well!)
I love the bookmark idea!! I hope you don't mind if I CASE it! Thanks so much for sharing.
