The winter solstice ushers in many holidays of 'light'. Seeming to ward off the darkness and chill of winter, candles bring warmth, cheer, and hope for the return to longer, brighter days.
Today's card features the tiny stamps from the Every Occasion Stamp Set. The 20 stamps in this set make it a perfect addition to your stamping shelf.

Putting it all Together:
The Festival of Lights has intrigued me ever since I was a little girl. I love the idea of gathering family and friends together to light the candles to ward off the cold and darkness of the longest nights of the year. And the food! Latkes are one of my favorite foods of all time!
So, when the November Paper Pumpkin kit arrived, I was thrilled to see how well it could work with Hanukkah. It reminded me of when I lived in New Jersey, with the snow falling softly all around. Our Jewish neighbors would gather their friends and family and for eight nights, the driveway was packed with cars of loved ones from near and far. And always, every window of the house was lit up for everyone to find their way in the darkness.
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription kit that comes in the mail each month. It's perfect for beginning crafters as everything you need comes in the kit - ink, exclusive stamp sets, paper, embellishments. The only thing you have to supply will be a bit of glue. Experienced crafters step it up a bit by creating alternative projects, like I have. Paper Pumpkin makes the perfect holiday gift, too. Available in 1, 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions, it's the gift that keeps on giving throughout the year!
