Michael Strong Blog Hop

Today is the Michael Strong Blog Hop featuring the Christmas Trees stamp set!

Plus it's the worldwide premiere of my blog!  So much to celebrate I couldn't do it with just one thing alone.  So I made a few...

For this project I used the Burnished Watercolour technique to make my own designer paper for this Christmas scrapbook page.



For this project I used the mini milk carton from Stampin Up! to create boxes full of candy for the kids at Christmas.



And last but not least here is a simple Christmas card.



Hope you enjoyed the projects I made.   Please leave a comment and if you make a comment on every one of the blogs in our blog hop you get a chance to win a new Michael Strong stamp set!
