City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 286 ~ Getting Ready for Christmas!

Hello all, it is November and I am starting to get panic about not having enough Christmas card, so this week, I am just going to go big on the holiday!

Getting Ready for Christmas!

Make a christmas card or any christmas project, have fun!

Week 286 ~ Getting Ready for Christmas!

Special Guest Star (November)

This month, we are so lucky to have Marcia Hill as our Special Guest Star at CCCB!

Hey City Crafters!  My name is Marcia and I am married and have 3 daughters (2 married and 1 in college) and 2 dogs.  And one granddaughter who is just the joy of my life!  I have been stamping since 1999 when I attended my first SU! party, and have been addicted ever since.  I started my blog 3 years ago after losing my job to give me something to focus on, and I've been happily blogging ever since.  I'm more of a "pretty" stamper (LOVE flowers and cute images) than a graphic stamper, but am always up for learning new techniques.  I am honored that Kirsty invited me to be a Special Guest Star, and hope you find some inspiration from my cards and on my blog (http://marciasstampinpad.blogspot.com/).  I love visitors, so hop on by anytime!

What a beautiful project Marcia!
