Let the sneak peeks begin!


It's Saturday!
 It's World Cardmaking Day!
 It's sneak peek time with Practicing Creativity Designs newest release!

(Does it get any better? *grin*)

Oh wait, it DOES! 
PCD has three guest designers this month, so you get seven peeks each day until the release on October 5th! How's that for awesome?

On top of Courtney, Karen,  and Paulina's posts, you can check out the peeks from 
 and Christina Maclaren too! 
Such eye candy for sure.

This card was made using the new set called Retro Christmas. (that was our very broad hint yesterday...retro, like when we were kids? *wink*)
I white embossed the pattern on the bottom and also the ornaments before adding the sparkle in the open space. I love that the "hangers" are a separate stamp, in case you don't want to hang them! lol
Clean and simple today, but I made 7 different cards/projects with these two new sets already, so be prepared for many different styles coming your way!


OH, and because today is World Cardmaking Day, we have an extra chance at winning for you all. Just make any card using a Practicing Creativity stamp! The winner will get to be a guest designer next month, and Courtney also has a Tattered Angels prize pack to give away! So go make a card, and  link it up on Courtney's post today. You have until Friday, October 8th to enter!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and don't forget that the more you comment on the DT blogs, the better your chances of winning BOTH sets on Tuesday!

Now go create something,
*mwah*

Ahhh...retro. I get it. I was SO thinking it was a stamp with Christmas movie themes. I am way too literal sometimes. :)

I like the card. The colors look great and I really like the font.
