Practicing Creativity - it' almost time!

I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for Practicing Creativity Stamps this month. I first noticed these great stamps on Karen's blog. That led me to Courtney's blog and then to the Practicing Creativity store. Every month there is a new release and honestly, they are all great. This month is no exception. I can't reveal the goods yet but I'm here today with a little hint. If you hop on over to the design team blogs, maybe you will figure it out ;)
The hint: What's your favorite sequel?

I had to have a bit of a think on this one but decided that for me it's The Godfather Part II. One of the best sequels ever as far as I'm concerned.

So, until tomorrow...when I can start sharing, here are a few holiday cards I made with Practicing Creativity holiday stamps. First up, this card I made with Christmas Wonder. The holiday paper is Basic Grey Jovial. I made the ribbon from narrow strips of fabric folded in half and zig zag stitched:
This one features Retro Christmas (don't you love that script?!) The paper here is Kaiser Craft and embossing powder is Glitter Zing.

And lastly - just picked up this one - Everyday Prints. Love those blocky distressed letters.
I was feeling a little 'Ren & Stimpy' when I made this one!

So, why not stop by the designer's blogs and see if you can figure it out?! Here are some handy links:

And stay tuned tomorrow for your first peek at set number 1!
