Happy 3rd Birthday PaperWorksCo

My, my, my - where HAS the time gone? Can you believe that PaperWorksCo is already celebrating their THIRD birthday? As anyone who reads my blog on a regular basis already knows, I am a big fan of PaperWorksCo and discovered them mere months (maybe even weeks) after they originally started up. I was looking for a Canadian source for some of my favourite crafting supplies and, well, I've been a loyal customer ever since. I was even one of the original members of her first design team! Can you say honoured? Flattered?

Anyways, I hemmed and hawed over which of the adorable stamp collections I would feature in my post to celebrate this momentous occasion. Should I go with my all-time fave "Harriet the Hippo" from the inaugural Safari Friends stamp collection from PWCO or should I go with something from the new collections? I figured I would give Harriet a break (I ALWAYS feature her for big PWCO happenings) and go with a brand spanking new image fresh from the mailbox.

Don't you just love the results of this partnership between PaperWorksCo and Rachelle Anne Miller?

This "Season of Joy" image will certainly bring back fond memories of childhood Christmases for most of you - whether or not you hung your stocking on a fireplace mantle. I think this image perfectly captures the hope, joy and anticipation that every child feels at this time of year. I don't know about you but, for me, the best part of Christmas has ALWAYS been the stocking!

- patterned paper: Basic Grey Jovial
- card stock: CTMH New England Ivy
- Spellbinders: Labels Seventeen
- ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa
- coloured with PrismaColor Pencils (927, 916, 917, 918, 912, 911, 906, 941,944, 921, 997) and Zig Marker "Pure Red"
- satin ribbon from my Fabricland stash

And now for the featured sneak peek....
