Stampin' Up! Christmas!

It's my favorite time of the year...Stampin' Up! Christmas!  I look forward every year to getting in my BIG order from my New Catalog Kick-Off party, which also includes a huge order for myself. :) Of course!  Here's a pic of all my new goodies!
I actually received the first part of my order yesterday and didn't get a chance to take a picture of it but it included the Six-Sided Sampler bundle that I received for FREE from Sale-A-Bration. I actually only spent about $100 and got the rest with my hostess benefits.  There are great perks for being a demonstrator, or even just hosting your own me today if you are interested in either and I can answer any questions you may have!

Here is my first card with some of my new goodies. I am entering it in the challenges at The Friday Mashup, Pals Paper Arts and retrosketches.

Oh Blogger drives me NUTS sometimes when it doesn't want to put my pictures in the same places where I WANT them!  Oh, well. You get the idea!  The challenge at Friday Mashup is to create a girly project with hexagons so Six-Sided Sampler arrived just in time!
I wasn't exactly sure how versatile this set was going to be but I LOVE it!  It's nice to have some shapes to work with instead of always having flowers. The flowers look really cute on the hexagons though!  Just a nice, simple floral pattern. The green hexagons are popped up with Dimensionals.  I had to throw in the Hexagon embossing folder too. :) Oh, and the friends sentiment is new to me too...AND it's on sale this month so you might want to add Sweet Essentials to your next order too!
