My Thoughts Exactly December Release

We're starting December a bit early at My Thoughts Exactly! There are 2 new stamp sets being released this month:



...and Holly Jolly Phrases
Today I have 2 projects using the great new tag set. I love that it comes with 5 snowflakes- perfect for making a background!

(see the "love and joy?" Those are actually from the Sweet Thoughts set!). I love the polka dot tag- it works great for any occasion!

My next card features the ornament tag. I paper-pieced them for added color, punched the hole at the top, and strung each with silver embroidery floss.
Here are the rest of my tags....just waiting to be used on future projects!


---Giveaway---

Do you want to win a $5 Gift Card to My Thoughts Exactly? Leave a comment on this post telling me:
When do you think Christmas festivities should start?

Do you want to see holiday decorations in the mall, and Christmas music on the radio right after Thanksgiving? Do you think they should wait until December? Or are you one of the people who think it should start earlier than Thanksgiving?

I personally think it's crazy when I see Santa pre-Thanksgiving. I like to focus on one holiday at a time! Although a friend of mine says she "officially" gets in the Christmas spirit right after her birthday- and her bday is October 13!!

For more fabulous inspiration, please check out the rest of the DT:

Love how you made the stamps into hanging ornaments. :)

I prefer to see Xmas festivities start after Thanksgiving. I can't get into it beforehand.

Hi Jennifer! I love both of your cards. The tree card looks serene, and the ornament card has almost a whimsical look. Also love the colors!

Festivities should start on Black Friday. That gets me in the mood, we put our tree up while listening to classic Christmas music. Love the feeling.

Great cards, I love the stamps and the colors.

Fabulous ornaments... and I'm sure those sentiments will come in handy. (Super siked that I got one of your Runway DT right, woo hoo, probably going to be 1 for 5). When should Christmas start? Jan 1st? Just kidding.. any time after Thanksgiving.

Hi Jennifer. Super cards as always. The tags are fab and I love the snowflake background on Kraft.

I have to admit that this year we are super early and our tree is up, lights are on and I have various Christmas ornaments scattered about the house curtesy of my children! x

Great stamps. Are there dies to coordinate with the tag set? I think Christmas festivities should start after Thanksgiving. TFS joy4umetoo at hotmail dot com

Great cards with these stamps, I especially like the white on kraft paper, very pretty! Personally, I think Christmas should start in December, I'm never really in the holiday mood until then.

Very cute cards. I love how you used the snowflakes to make a background. I personally think we should celebrate one holiday at a time. It seems crazy seeing Santa before Thanksgiving. TFS!

External festivities should not start prior to midnight on Thanksgiving Day, but internal heart festivities should be year-round.

Wow - I am loving your creations! I think Christmas festivities should not begin before December ... that way we enjoy it but it is not already Christmas as soon as the Halloween stuff is packed away ... :)
