As you all know, November is the time to gear up for Christmas shopping. So many sales and crowds!  Well, stick with us; we have some great deals for your Holiday Shopping needs.


 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Winter Scenes"



It's hard to believe that this is the last day of the blog hop.  This week has flown by.  I guess that's what happens as we count down to Christmas.  My card for today is a birthday card, using the musical background and a couple of very large Prima flowers.  


The sentiment is from the Celebrate mini set, which I received for participating in the September swap on Speedy TV.  BTW, have you checked out the swaps over on Speedy TV?  You only have to make four cards -- but you get three cards in return, as well as a free mini set.  

My second project is an altered junior legal pad.



It was pretty simple to put together.  I cut a white pocket portfolio folder in half, sliced one side of the pocket, folded it down just a little bit, and slid my junior legal pad over the pocket.  After scoring down the center, I folded the other half over to make the cover and glued some designer paper on the front.  I figured "just a note" was the perfect sentiment for my "notebook."

I hope you have gotten some inspiration from the blog hop this week.  All the designers worked hard to present interesting projects.  Don't forget to comment on as many of the blogs that you can.  The more you comment, the greater the chance you have to win a free stamp set.
