Welcome to yet another blog hop and lets hope I am organised like I was last time, well a little anyway for blog hop 23, only two more to go and we have been at this for a year. If you have just landed here you have come from the super talented Narelle Macey.
So now lets see what the Teneale has given us to work with this week? Quite an interesting design, don’t you think? Come and see what I have done.
I decided to use one of the stamp sets from the new Occasions Catalouge being launched on the 1st September and boy are you going to love it. They have really given us lots of great Christmas suites to get our creative juices flowing. The set I chose is called Reason for the Season, which also comes with a punch so that if you choose you can punch it out to do the layers. I however choose to fussy cut mine…………………be on the look out for a upgraded card…………lol
Who doesn’t get red everywhere when they are stamping, let me warn you that I had red everywhere however if you look at the card, we needed to have a bit of any over the top puddle, well my puddle turned into a splatter with the gorgeous grunge which soon took.
I particularly love the new embossing folder, which I used upside down, but then hey I can at my age. I hope you enjoy it.
For the inside I kept it very simple and just used the sentiment that comes with the stamp set, “Jesus is the Reason for the Season” Really resonates with me and sometimes people become so fixed on what’s in it for me, they forget what the reason for this season is.
Next up is the super amazing Katrina, I wonder what she has up her sleeve for us this week.

Thank you Cheryl
Barbara – this is gorgeous! I love how you paired this Fall-themed DSP with the flower. GORGEOUS!
Thanks Brian, I had first off all thought of the brick wall, then my eyes fell upon the paper and I was sold on it.
