I hope you won't mind terribly that I am repeating a couple of stamp sets today.  My design is nothing like the cards I used them on before.  You can likely imagine what my desk looks like in the midst of crafting.  Inks are piled here and stamp sets are piled there.  Well, since MFP Stamp Shop sets are made of clear photopolymer, you can see the images on top of one another.  This works especially well while they are adhered to the plastic sheeting they come in.  Christmas Selections was piled on top of Joyous Season and an idea was born.  Heat embossing is something that always feels right when I make Christmas cards, so that came into play as well.  I nabbed a third MFP set called You're An Angel for my sentiment.  

If you have been hopping along, head on to Vickie's blog.  If not, you will want to go back to the beginning. Here's the Design Team:  JaneKarenKrenLois MarilynnPatSandySueToni

I hope you enjoyed the hop. Be sure to look at each of the last four days for more Christmas fun. We hope to inspire you to start your Christmas cards and projects.  You still have time to work on the tutorials, show us what you made.  Check back on August 15 to see if you are a winner. Thanks for stopping by!
