     Now let me show you what I created for the Challenge #7 - Blog Hop!

     I used this adorable "Snow Family" image from Createful Heart, colored with my ProMarkers, and cut with an Unbranded die.  I cut the frame for it with another die from that same set, only one size larger.  That has to be my favorite die for making lace ovals or doilies.  The printed sentiment was also cut with a die from that set.

     Everything was mounted onto a colored card base.  I added narrow green ribbon and tied a double bow, then added the green, sparkly candy cane, and called it finished.  I wanted it to be as flat as possible for mailing.

     Okay, there you have it folks.  This is my last card as a DT member for Createful Heart and I wish them all the best.  Be sure to get to “hopping” and also get your own Christmas card entered into the challenge.  Have fun with it and Happy Stamping!  NanaConnie
