Without further ado, here is my card for the blog hop.


Well, it looks like Christmas is coming! =)


I cut the new Merry Christmas 2 Die using some festive-color cardstock and filled the negative spaces to create the focal point. This took some time, but it was quite therapeutic. =)


Once again, I used the same Merry Christmas 2 Die cutouts to create the tone-on-tone repeated pattern background.

That's all from me. Don't forget to leave comments along the way for a chance to win! Have fun hopping and good luck! =)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
