Verve Stamps December Release Blog Hop


Wonderful things come in small packages, I always say!  This month's release at Verve Stamps is a mini one, but no less fabulous!  How darling is this sweet Christmas bird that Julee Tilman created?!  He is the sweetest little thing, whether you color him, leave him plain, or paper piece him!  The fonts in this new Verve Stamps set, Christmas Joy, are beautiful, with a mix of block print and script!  There's a little more Verve goodness on my card...the "must have" Award Banner Trim Die!

The Monday Mojo Sketch Challenge #321 and the Just Us Girls #216 provided the inspiration I needed to whip up this Christmas card!  Now, I need to start addressing the holiday cards I've been making and getting them ready for the mail!


I've been drooling over some of the girls' use of jingle bells on their Christmas cards and projects, so when I was at Jo-Ann's this past weekend I grabbed a few bags of them!  Love these red ones...a great pair up with my favorite twine!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!  Enjoy the hop!
