Denise has a beautiful Flopsey to share today – don’t you love this Flopsey Flies a Kite? Makes me feel springy despite the chill in the air!

You’ll find this cutie from Pure Innocence: Best Medicine on Cammie’s Blog, and also in this month’s issue of Cardmaker Magazine! Congratulations Cammie!

I am in love with this sweet submission for our Wednesday Stamp Club challenge using Being Cute is What I Do. Is it me, or is this the nice to contrast with Kelli Jo’s naughty? And besides, a party *needs* some cake! And these Die-namics Rolled Roses in felt, are perfection!

This project by Sandra using Don’t Open Until is so soft and lovely.  Check out the soft coloring, sponging and that twine bow!

For those of you already back to work, I hope it is nice and quiet in the office and you can do fun things like catch up on your Google Reader, and check out your favorite blogs. For those of you home for vacation, hope you can squeeze in a little crafty time among taking down the tree and putting away your Christmas presents!

Today, I’ve got a few of Our Favorite Finds which we’ve discovered in the last week of blog surfing and gallery gazing.

Our Favorite Finds: December 14 through December 20

This week Our Favorite Finds will be short – but I hope you’ll agree that it is very, very sweet!   Amidst last minute gift purchases, wrapping and party preparations, I hope you’ll be able to take a peek at these beautiful creations found in the last week with My Favorite Things Stamps!

Vickie isn’t a huge fan of the white stuff in real life, but creates such a lovely Snow Day scene for a recent Wednesday Stamp Club challenge to make a winter wonderland!  I love the addition of the Die-namics Sheltering Tree, and the tiny Die-namics Let it Snowflake die.

Tammy ‘s color pallette and paper choices are so festive using a la modes: Candy Cane Kisses.  Doesn’t this just put you in the holiday spirit? Be sure to take a close look at her fabulous coloring of those sassy black boots!

Look how Bonnie turned our Pure Innocence: Fairy Girl into an adorable Snow Fairy! I always love when you girls put a fresh spin on a stamp set.  Is it me, or do you usually think of this as a springy stamp? But this is fabulous! Love the snow wand! Be sure to take a close look at Bonnie’s beautiful torn paper snow hills.

You will be amazed with all the luscious details from Sarah using Polka Dot Greetings, you have got to see the stunning Rolled Rose Die-namic that has been embossed and inked. Be sure to click over to her blog for a closeup shot. Trust me, it is amazing!  How about her luscious ribbon treatment. This project surely is a beauty!

Amber has such gorgeous shading on her Sending You a Little Christmas- check the shadows she’s added under the sleigh and to ground the entire scene.  Totally perfect.  I’ve got to add that I am in LOVE with her luscious seam binding bow.

Thanks for stopping by to see some of Our Favorite Finds this week. Its our chance to feature all of YOU our amazing customers!

We’ve got a double post day today up first is one of two days of Our Favorite Finds – you know, the day that we’re all about YOUR creations!  Today we’re featuring projects discovered in online galleries and blogland between November 23 and November 29. We didn’t share these last week so that we could really focus on our daily Teasers!

Crystal treats us to some fuzzy pajamas with Pure Innocence: Naptime. Gosh, I wish it was acceptable for us adults to take a nap on a regular basis, why do kids fight that?

That Eva has such an amazing way with colors. This Pure Innocence: Birthday Princess is so bright and happy, doesn’t it make you smile? I love that she’s using our new Die-namics Faux Crochet Border, and what a pretty little banner she has in place with the Banner Strip Die.

I’m so grateful for Broni’s beautiful card featuring Framed Greetings. I’m going to have to play around in my stamp room with my Die-namics and felt to put together a big old felted flower like this
