So, it’s “Boxing Day”: December 26, 2022. You survived another Christmas. WOOHOOOOoooo! Now it’s time for those happysad mixed feelings that come in the wake of the holiday season: “Whew, that’s over and done with!” followed by “phooey, the credit card bills are here already? How’d they get here so fast?” Followed by wave after wave of emotion as you take down the tree, look at your holiday photos and maybe even make a few pages for your scrapbook.
Another Christmas is now behind us — but if you celebrate Christmas, it’s never to early to get going on next year’s Christmas projects. Maybe you could hit the after-Christmas sales, load up on some cheap supplies, and get started!
Either way, you’re invited to grab any of our Christmas patterns so you’ll have ’em in your pattern stash when you do get around to working on Christmas designs again — whether it’s this week with deeply discounted Christmas yarns, or next year when the festivities start all over again.
I hope you had a lovely Christmas, and that your new year will be prosperous and blessed. For those of you who are shopping today, here’s hoping you’ll score bunches of amazing bargains.

Floral Birthday Cards Featuring Ink Blending and Bouquet Stamps by Hero Arts
I just posted a bunch of new card making ideas for spring. You can see three of them pictured above; these three designs are all spring-friendly birthday cards featuring lovely floral motifs.
One thing these cards all have in common: I used the same floral bouquet stamp to stamp the focal images I used to create each of these cards. This bouquet design is from a stamp set called “Togetherness” by Hero Arts.
I LOVE these stamps! I think this stamp set offers you an outstanding value in exchange for the money you spend on it; it includes the gorgeous floral bouquet image plus a bunch of useful, versatile sentiments that work well for creating a variety of greeting cards. There’s a birthday greeting (pictured on the uppermost card) and multiple others. I can tell I am going to get a massive amount of use from this set; I’m really pleased with it.
In addition to the birthday cards pictured above, I also created an all-occasion greeting card using this stamp set. You can click here to check that out, if you’re interested.
If you want step-by-step instructions for how to make the birthday cards pictured above, you can find them at the following links:
