Hi there...glad you popped in (-:
ok everyone - have you made your Christmas cards easy on you yet and gotten the
  Heartfelt Creations Christmas Card Collection paper pack?
(hey, another thing I found out about this paper pack is that it matches some retired SU cardstock I have from I think 2007! Matches Vintage Violet and True Thyme so completely perfectly...)

so here are 3 more - just added ribbon, stickles and a little hand-doodling ...enjoy

Remember the more blogs you visit and comment the more chances you have to be the random winner of the $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations! The hop closes Fri. November 1st at
midnight. Winner will be announced by noon on Saturday...enjoy the hop (-:

How can you help OWH keep the good deed going? By creating cards!!! Yes!
