Christmas Punch


  1. Bought this set – so it’s revealed . . . I’m a punch maven too! Great showcase of what you can do with this set. One is just as beautiful as the next.

    I can’t bring myself to make Christmas cards yet. Maybe in August. Summer goes by too fast.

  2. I LOVE this set, and you did a beautiful job with it.

  3. Whoa! Someone was busy!

    Love your color choices with these! I gotta get this set!

  4. Cheryl McAskill

    I almost have to agree with Tiffany on the Summer being so short. This year it has rained soooooo much here in RI. Only 5 days in June it didn’t rain! and so far July has been wet. Last weekend was beautiful. We are now back to rain. I am checking for the development of webbing between fingers and toes! But I am going to start my cards next week, even possibly this weekend!

  30. Oh, will you look at this cute set!!! I have got to get some ink to rubber! This is the hostess set I picked for my pre-order and I have only inked the snowflakes to use on the journaling block of a 8? x 8? page I did in June. I need to get something substantial done with it!

    Have a great weekend!
