TCM Holiday Blog Hop


Hello there! Whew! It's been a week but I haven't gotten back to the swing of things yet. So much paper work to do and update. Argh! I love having vacations but the I'm not too keen on the load of work I have to get back to after it. Gas lines have been shorter. Hopefully by this week everything will go back to normal. 

The Craft's Meow

Since the holidays are fast approaching, TCM is having a Holiday Blog Hop for everyone! So, if you just came from Chupa's blog (Iwona Palamountain), you are right where you ought to be. IF not, please head on over to The Craft's Meow Blog to start from the very beginning. TCM is giving away a stamp set of choice for a lucky winner! All you have to do is to leave comments along the way. Comments must be left by 9pm PST, Wed Nov 14th.

Let's head on over to my card. I'm using Vintage Snowflake and The Merry Best on my card.


I used the Vintage Snowflakes to make the background panel for my card. Then I used the wonderful tree images and sentiment from The Merry Best on the raised panel of my card.


I added some lace, ribbon and cut out the little balls on a trim to add to my ribbon. I also flanked the raised panel with strips of patterned papers. I'm not sure if you can see it, but I also used some enamel accents on the trees as well.


That's it for me today. Now head on over to Jen Cuthbertson for more inspiration! Thanks for stopping by today. Please make sure you leave comments along the way for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice! Enjoy your week! See you all again!
