Now on to the project I am sharing today.

I had fun creating this card.
Aren't the pine needle garland on the mantle the cutest?  I got those at Hobby Lobby.  They are Canadian Pine Stems that I just cut to fit the top of my mantle.
The mantle came from the Window View Die set from Fun Stampers Journey.  It is actually the window sill, but I think it looks great as a mantle.  Thanks to my friend Cindy for the idea.

All other supplies are from Fun Stampers Journey and can be found here

Stamp:  Merry Everything, Canvas Prints
Ink:  Dark Roast, Cranberry Bliss
Colored with Color Burst Pencils 
Pattern Paper: Cozy Prints
I hope you found some inspiration.  Now be sure to hop over to Sandy's blog.

Here's our line up in case you get lost along the way.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!
Be sure to join us next month for our
This Magic Moment Disney Themed Blog hop!

Thank you for letting us inspire you!
