TGF Holiday Blog Hop...

I am so excited to be a part of all of this holiday fun!!! I almost thought I was not going to make it...I got the 'blue screen of death' on my laptop a little while ago :( Thankfully, I have it up and running again. That will teach me to schedule a post ;)

To start the hop, please visit the TGF Blog as there is only ONE master list of participants. You can easily access the blog here:

Here is the card I created for the hop. Please scroll down for some additional info and photos :)

Here are some stamps I used from the TGF "Spotlight" Kit....still one of my ABSOLUTE favorites!!!

I used the arrow stamp to make a pennant banner in my first card by cutting off the bottom portion of the stamp. I again used this same stamp to make the tree in my second card and used one of the cut offs for my stump. I also used one of the stars for the tree topper.

Card: Michael's

Buttons: Autumn Leaves
