What a cute set! One of my favorite memories is when my mom and step dad married. It was around Christmas time and I was 10 years old. We took a sled from the ceremony to the reception. I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

What an adorable set! Most of my favorite childhood memories revolve around wintertime fun, skating on our neighbor's pond, snowmobiling to a family campfire in the woods and sliding with all the neighborhood kids for hours on end...it's nice to think of those now...and to realize I need to do a lot more of it as an adult - have FUN!

Thanks for the chance to win!

I've never had a sleigh ride! I have ridden sleds, but no sleigh.

The stamp set is really great, I like the different options.

Sharon said...

I've enjoyed your samples of Sleigh Ride. Have never taken a ride on one, just sled rides!

Those are such a cleaver idea for stamps - I love the way you have the images left middle and right - it looks like they are moving across the page and on their way someplace for the holidays. Great design - thanks for sharing your talent.

Cute idea to do sleigh accessories! Looks like they'd be fun to color!

Melissa said...

I love all the variations you can make with the sleigh soap. Too cool!

Winter said...

WOW, there are so many combinations you can make with that stamp set! :)

Sleigh you said? You can say that again as the new place where we moved has a hill behind the building and, this autumn as I was looking out the window I realized it's perfect for slaying. SO yahoo for this winter. I ma going to be a kid again and ask my father to make me a real sleigh. As for the stamped ones, they are gorgeous!

Amy said...

This stamp set is so fun! I like that there are so many choices for filling the sleigh.

Laurel said...

Cute sleigh stamp. The only "sleigh ride" I have been on has been pulled by horses but I would love to go on a sleigh ride down a big hill made of snow! :)

jingle bells....it is amazing that as a child, i sang with abandon belting out what i thought the song said. as an adult, i understand the words, and the phrase "one-horse open sleigh" actually means something.

Debbie said...

Hi,
Your designs are really nice... something different from the usual seen out there. I love the sleigh ride stamp set... They sure would make the cutest Christmas cards :)
