Good morning and once again welcome to the Keeping Christmas Blog Hop!  This blog hop is dedicated to giving you inspiration so you may want to start making your Christmas cards and gifts early.

On the 25th of each month the team will be sharing some ideas for Christmas.

Your host this month is the creator of Keeping Christmas.......... Kelly Lunceford!!!!!

This month I created a card that is longer is size then I normal do, it is 41/2 X 6.  I started with a white base and sponged on distress ink in tumbled glass.  I used the berry wreath stamp and die set. All the stamps and dies used are from Papertrey Ink. I stamped the wreath with new leaf ink and used pencil colors to color in the leaves also using red stickles on the berries.  The long bow is from deck the halls stamp and die set, stamped with pure poppy ink and glittered, and the center has a dab of red sticklers. The wreath is raised with foam tape for some dimension.

The sentiment is from deck the halls stamp set. I used versafine onyx black and clear embossing powder.

The tea cups are from cup of cheer and stamped in summer sunrise and new leaf inks. This stamp set also has the sweetest little poinsettias which I glittered and used red sticklers on.  The candy cane is from Christmas critters stamp set which is also glittered. I finished the card with some designer paper and pretty lace.

Now stop on over and visit the rest of the amazing team!!!
