WELCOME! You are going to be SO INSPIRED when you’re all through with this FABULOUS hop!!Β  Let’s get STARTED!

If you’re here and don’t know about the HOP today, PLEASE start at the CAARDVARKS BLOG. All the details are posted there!

Today’s focus is CARDS! I tried to go fairly SIMPLE and EASY….you could actually reproduce these pretty easily (or something similar) – unless you needed 100 Christmas cards πŸ™‚

LOVE these SCALLOP edged card bases from Creative Cuts and More. You can get them in SO MANY colours and LOADS of different textures…LOVE that.

They save so much time and make the process that much quicker.

OH and I can’t forget to mention the PRIZES!!!!
