Heartfelt Creations Alumni's August Blog Hop!

Hi there...
really happy to finally be able to join in the Heartfelt Creation's Alumni Team blog hop...this year has been crazy and no extra time. So this is really fun for me (-:
especially because I am so in love with their new Christmas Card Collection.
Heartfelt has really made it so easy to be able to knock out our Christmas cards ON TIME this year LOL

check out the new video and you will see what I mean...

.these were each created with the new Christmas Card Collection
I mail my cards so I keep the embellishments fairly simple to keep the postage down...

Only needed various card-stocks for base, stash lace, ribbon, some stickles ... and I love Viva Pearl Pens.

These three cards took....are you ready??? only 30 minutes ...with no rushing! for me....that's awesome.
so now I wont be struggling to get my cards done this year...Thank you Heartfelt!

Now your next stop is over to the fabulously talented Mary Faus

Remember to comment as you hop, there will be a random winner selected from one of the Alumni Design Team's blogs. The hop closes at midnight August 30th and the winner will be announced by noon on Saturday.
 The randomly chosen winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations

Hope something here inspired you..
Enjoy the hop
