Christmas hopping! (TSOL and The Twinery!)

Hey there friends! I'm having a blog-hopping WEEK!!! Today we're hopping with The {Stamps} of Life, and The Twinery!  If you are starting here, head back to The Twinery blog to start at the beginning! (If you've been hopping, you should have come here from Katrina Hunt!)


I created a Christmas card to share with you today! I used TSOL's stamp set called Holly4Christmas.  This set is one of my FAVORITES.  The sentiments are sized perfectly, and the holly and ornaments are so fun to stamp and paper-piece.  I also used the stamp set called trees2build, for the branch and birdie. (Should I mention, it's another one of my all-time favorite sets!?) 
Here's how I created this card:
I stamped the branch, and then paper-pieced my ornaments from card stock.  I attached them to the card, using foam tape on the red ornament.  Then I carefully pierced holes in the card, and threaded the twine through, tying a tiny bow above each ornament. 
Clean and simple is TOTALLY who I have become, and I LOVE it.  I love the contrast of the crisp sharp lines, and circular ornaments on this card.  I hope you like it too, and I hope you'll come back to visit me again!

But NOW. . . .head on over to visit Jen Carter!

And remember. . .
As you make your way through the hop make sure you comment on each and every post. There will be 2 prize winners chosen randomly among the blogs:
One winner will win 2 stamp sets  (winners choice) valued at $12.95 -total retail value: $26.90 per prize! from The {Stamps} of Life.

One winner will win the Ultimate Color Sampler Pack ($25 value!) from The Twinery!!!
The prize winners will be announced on The {Stamps}of Life and The Twinery Blogs on Wednesday November 16th.
