All Holidays Blog Hop

Thank you for hopping today with us, “Hopping Just for the Fun of it”.  Today’s theme is ALL HOLIDAYS, meaning just that, we all need to have cards ready for just that special holiday ahead of time or maybe we will have a test card first, before making all the cards needed for the holiday... Plan on visiting us each month, the next hop will be the first Saturday of the Month.  You may of came today from Stop #10, InkPaperStamps.  I happen to be Stop # 11 of 18 stops along the way this month.

I wanted to try using the same set to make multiple holiday/occasion cards.  I was pretty happy with what I came up with - be sure to let me know what you think!  So, I have to tell you - I have had this set for a few months.  It some how slipped my mind that our fabulous rubber stamps now come die cut - and I was just dreading cutting these circles out.  Once my brain turned back on and I realized I just had to pop them out and stick them on, I was super excited about using them!!  I know everyone else has had this set for years, and are probably over it by now - but man, I am in love!

I used Circle Circus and Teeny Tiny Messages for each of these cards.  They all have the same basic layout, and were all embossed after I stamped them.  I am completely addicted to Stampin' Up!'s embossing folders, I don't think I am even capable of making a card without them.  

Don’t forget we love comments if possible.  To continue the hop, the next Stop # 12, is Stamping with Janice.  I am sure you will enjoy her project this month.  If you should happen to get lost anywhere thru the hop. you can go to the main blog, Hopping Just for the Fun of it, or use the following list here below.  Thanks for hopping with us.
