Practicing Creativity Designs: just a hint!!

Hello!  Is everyone ready for a Practicing Creativity Designs release?
It's finally here.....well, almost!  Today along with the fabulous DT, I will be giving you a teeny hint.
Please visit the list below for everyone's hint for the first set we will be releasing.

It is Holiday/Christmas time around here and one of the many things my family enjoys doing
is watching movies, especially holiday movies.
So, here's my hint:
"One of my favorite holiday movies is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation"
I can still remember when I went to see this with my whole family as a kid.......It was a big deal.
My dad even went.....this was unheard of!  Anyway, this was and has always been
a movie that makes me laugh....certainly a great sequel!

To celebrate the holidays, I inked up several PCD stamp sets to make this card for you today.
Can you guess which ones they are?


My "tree" and star are from the You're Dandy stamp set and my tree garland
is made using the stems for the wee flowers from Barefoot Summer
I also used a small portion of a new stamp set that you will get to see later this week
for my sentiment.  You will like, I promise!!



Now go visit the rest of the list for their "hints" too and be ready for a great release
starting tomorrow!

{Wishing You}
Stamps:  You're Dandy and Barefoot Summer (both PCD)
Paper:  Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, and Rustic White (all PTI)
Ink:  Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, True Black (all PTI)
Misc:  Scallop Border Die (PTI), Silver Pearls (M's), Red Grograin Ribbon (Dollar Tree)
