STV's Center Stage Spotlight Group Hop - Inspiration Challenge

Welcome Everyone,
Well, this is a hard post to write...we found out last month that this is our very last 
STV Center Stage Spotlight Group Hop...
Gina has pulled the plug on us ...out with the old and in with the new!
New ideas for STV that is...You will see some new surprises that we are sure you will enjoy...

It has been a real pleasure creating and hoping to inspire you.
 Want to thank all of you for your faithful attendance each and every month to our hops. We've made lifelong friends as teammates and we all sincerely appreciate your support and encouraging comments over all these past few years...

so now enjoy the hop... 

You should have come from the awesome blog of Kay Simmons  

For my part, I created some new cards and brought back a couple favorites!
This was our inspiration...taken at a Botanical Garden (found it on Pinterest)


First is from combination of Melanie's "Pressed Flower", "Inspiration Mosaic"
 and Theresa's "Very Merry Christmas"

Second from Melanie's "Festive Frame" set
Third from STV's Freebie Tab

Fourth from Melanie's "Hip to Be Square" set

That's it for me...now you are headed over to the most wonderful blog of Lori McAree

and for the last time (sniff, sniff)...Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, December 24.

Best Wishes to everyone and have a blessed Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
