all good things most come to an end.....right???

Well that's what they say anyway....who ever "they" are, right???  So we will just go with it for this post.

My time on the Pink by Design design team has come to an end.  (sniff, sniff)  Sarah and the rest of the girls on the team were great to work with. 

Here is my card:

On my card I used the "happy love day" from Pink by designs Love always set.  I love this set!!  Can't wait to use it more once Valentines day gets closer. 

Paper is by Stampin' Up, ribbon is Bazzill, the monekys are part of the Changito the Monkey line from Stampendous stamps.  

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holidays. 

See you in 2011!!!

Holiday Cards and Gift Blog Hop


Happy Saturday everyone....are you ready to get your "hop" on???  Well of course you are!! 

When you are ready to go to the next blog in the hop either click the picture above or here is a link to Nikki's blog  And if you need to start over here is a link to the first blog in the hop

I know it is a super busy time of the year for everyone, so I will keep this short and sweet. 

Patterned paper is by Basic Grey Jovial
Background paper was made by lovable old! No but seriously, it is just SU! kraft cardstock, stamped with a cheapie damask stamp from HL using Tim Holtz distressing ink in walnut (stamped off 3x) then sprayed with iridescent gold by tattered angels.  I don't *love* gold...but it just seemed to go with this card. 
SU! ornament punch, SU! satin ribbon
$1 stamp from Micheal's....this just goes to show you don't have to buy all those expensive stamps to make nice cards.  ;)

Thanks for stopping by, and if you are not a follower already....make sure add yourself.  I do giveaways all the time, and I would hate for you to miss any :)  

Enjoy the hop!!!
