Festive Friday Blog Hop - 17

Welcome back for another installment of the Festive Friday Blog Hop. If you haven't heard, it's been our quest to inspire you to create some Christmas cards before the holiday is upon us. Time is going by so fast.  If you have joined, please send me a link, I would love to see your creations.

To start at the beginning of the hop, please hop on over to Terri's site.You should have arrived here from Debra's site blog. If you missed it please go back and make sure you visit her site.

For my project, I created a 5 x 7 card using Recollections papers. I used the Gypsy by Provocraft to size the diecut. This is from one of the newer cartridges, Word Collage by Cricut.

Now for some blog candy, I will be giving away a set of stamps by Anna Griffin. To be eligible to win the stamps, please leave me a comment below. I would love it if you would become a follower, but it is not necessary. I will be using to pick a winner and I will announce the winner of the Anna Griffin stamp set on Monday, September 12, 2011.

Please stop by tomorrow for the start of a 2 day Autumn is Here Blog Hop.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you had fun.
