Can you believe it's November already?
Time to really start focusing on those holiday cards!
To get you in a festive holiday creating mood the
Design Team is having a blast making cards
using Christmas Carols as their inspiration.
Beginning Monday and all this week we invite you to stop in and
guess the Christmas Carol that inspired our DT that day.  Give us your best guess in the comment section and the correct answers for each day will go into a drawing
for some amazing Holiday stamps!  
How fun is that?! amp up your Mojo even more our November monthly challenge
is "Holidays".  From Thanksgiving to New Year's and everything in between...
we want to see your cards celebrating the season!

The Great Impressions Stamps Design Team
has come up with a delightful array of holiday
fun to jump start your Mojo!
Let's check it out!

Great Impressions Stamp:  E512 - Have Yourself

Mary's card is awash in bright and cheerful Christmas colors!
Love the snowflake background and whimsical font of the sentiment!

Great Impressions Stamps:  F297 Eat Pizza & D374 Simple Things

Sue's card takes me back to a pumpkin farm with a corn maze (grin!)
Beautiful Fall colors and fantastic dimension.
Doesn't that little mouse and turkey make quite the pair?

Great Impressions Stamps:  F459 Dotted Winter Tree & F339 Very Merry Sparkles

Shanna's card is packed with delightful sparkle and shimmer!
Love how the blue really pops out against the frosty white.

Great Impressions Stamps:  H185 Simple Elegance & Elegant Merry Christmas

Erin paired up two elegant stamps perfectly!
I love the flourishes peeking behind her shimmery gold sentiment!

Great Impressions Stamps:  B218 Magic in the Air & G28 Winter Chickadee

Angi has created a stunning card with a lovely presentation.
I adore the green die frame and distressed print background.
The snowy bird upon a stand gives me ideas on how to display my creations over the holidays!
This idea would even make a great gift!

Great Impressions Stamps:  C31 Pine Cone Sprig, D412 Season Brings,
H190 Vintage Holly Branches, H220 Magical Deer

My card is a window card with a floating image.

My favorite part of your card is the polka dot heart....very whimsical!"

Angi's choice:


"Congrats, Tracy!  You're my favorite - I love your Fall card!
The colors are just right and the details...the little notches on top,
the leaves with the chalk, the texture of the fabric, the tiny peeking
sentiment and of course those adorable little acorns!  I
appreciate the time and thought that must have gone into your yummy piece
of eye candy!"

Jenny's choice:


"Wowzers Darlene!  Could you please come tie all my bows? (lol!)
