I bought myself a couple of Lynne Perrella's stamp sets for Christmas, so I had fun using these new "favorite things" as well as my other "favorite" Dresden!

Why didn't I buy myself LP images for Christmas?! (Oh maybe because I have four kids to buy for... ha ha ha!) Soooo happy for you! They are my all time favorite. You've chosen ones I don't have so I'm jelly all over. ;0 These projects are all out of this world cool. Love your artsy designs and you're right about how beautifully the dresden works with the imagery. Such an inspiration! Hope you're New Year is off to a good start! Hugs, Autumn
