Inky Antics Christmas Blog Hop! :)

Hi everyone!
If you are here from sweet Jovi's blog, you are in the right place.
If you just happened onto my blog, you will want to go back to the Inky blog where it all starts. :)
The girls have all created projects with some of Inky's latest Christmas stamps.
I know...it's not even Halloween and we are sharing Christmas cards. But, you know how it is when you are a card maker though. You have to start early! We are leaving you plenty of time to check out some of Inky's newest sets, get them ordered and still have lots of time to get your cards done. :)
I am super excited because this is the first hop that includes my stamps! My friend Tex (Bev) and I will be sharing cards created with stamps from my Punny Christmas Critters line, and the other girls will be sharing projects created with the wonderful Tammy DeYoung's new images.

My card was done with #11129MC Punny Christmas Pups clear set. It is also available as wood mount...#0095H Fleas Navidad.

This is what the entire set looks like.
You can get a link to it and the other stamps the girls have used for this hop HERE.

I loved "decorating" the tree, and thought I would share a close up. The glitter and rhinestones almost look like lights. :)

Card Recipe:
Designer Paper: KaiserCraft - Belle Collection
Cardstock: Discount Card Stock -  Posh Red Linen and Brilliant White
Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon - Ruby Red Diamond Satin
Want2Scrap - 72 Count Red Rhinestones
Art Glitter - D59 StarDance Hexus Grande Dazzlers

The blog hop starts today and ends on Sunday, October 28th at midnight Central time. Please visit each DT members’ blog to view their projects and leave a comment for each designer. The more you comment, the better your chances are to win. (Limit one comment per blog, please). TWO people’s names will be drawn at random to receive an Inky Christmas clear stamp set. The winners’ names will be announced on the Inky Antics blog next Monday, so remember to stop back and see if you've won.

Your next stop on the hop is Michelle's inspiring blog. :)

Thanks so much for hopping by!
