Emily Leiphart's blog, then you are in the
right spot!  If not, pop back to the beginning
of the hop over at Laura's blog so you don't
miss a thing.  There are some pretty great
shopping sprees up for grabs if you hop along with us.

 So how fab are these dies??
This is the new 'Holly Jolly' dies & sentiments
and they are so fun to play with.
I used beautiful cardstock from Bazzill for the trees
and a deep black background for a beautiful contrast.

This is such a fun and easy card to make and with
the addition of a little bakers twine from The Twinery,
it's a quick Christmas card for someone special.

I hope you will hop with the rest of our team
all this week as we reveal all the new die and
stamps for the season!

Don't forget...leave a quick note to let me
know you stopped by and you could win one

We love her designs and can't wait to see
what she has to share.
