I got my email too, but I haven't even pre-shopped. The last time I did that, the company sent me some pre-selected stamps so, though I looked, I didn't get my mind set on anything this time around. I may go with dies as well, but I'll have to take a browse later today.
I got some cards made for the CAS party challenges last night and I'm trying to get them uploaded now.
This is my week to really push through my holiday preps as we'll be traveling early this year. DD comes tonight to make her Christmas cards....first ones as a newlywed couple! I'm thinking that this will be my time to finish off the cards I need for our friends...have all the family ones covered I think.
