Christmas Wish List

Although last week was my final week on the August Guest Diva DT, when Korin asked if I would like to participate in the sneak peeks for Christmas, I just had to say "Yes". I was able to play with one of the new sets, "A Cocoa Kind of Christmas". If you love Cocoa, you are just going to love this sweet set.

Tomorrow, September 1, SNS will be having a blog hop to introduce all the new Christmas stamps. You will have the chance to see the entire "A Cocoa Kind of Christmas" set along with the other fabulous, new stamp sets. I have seen the sneak peeks and I have to admit that some are on my shopping list for Christmas card supplies. Check out all the details on the Sweet N Sassy blog on September 1.

Thank you for looking!

Hi Ladies & Gents, i would just like to make an introduce myself to all the people at

That is what we call a terrific forum, I barely care to read out an entire forum section but this message board got my interest and believe me, That?s unusual.

I was after some info and was searching on Yahoo UK for it. I visited each of the top 4 pages that came up but didn?t get any relevant result... I then luckily found your diamond forum in the dirt and thought to check it out. This is just what I was looking for - what a incredible find!

Thanks geezas at and keep your tremendous effort up!?
