My Craft Spot Blog Hop!

I hope you have enjoyed the new releases this week and that you were inspired by our projects.  All the new releases will be available for purchase today in the My Craft Spot store.  
For my project I made two similar  cards.  For the sentiments on these cards I used the new
O Holy Night stamp set, LOVE this set!!


For this first one I cut the circle at 3" and stamped the image which is from the Stampin Up Peaceful Wishes stamp set (this is a very old set).  I added stickles to the pine needles and the pine cone to look like frost.  The Jute String on this one is Natural.


For the next card I cut the circle at 2.5" and used a different sentiment.  I also tried a different color of ribbon and  Ivory Jute String.




I will be giving away a $10.00 gift certificate to My Craft Spot for this hop, all you have to do is
