Papertrey December Blog Hop Challenge

Sunday, December 26, 2010



This year, I wrapped most gifts very simply.  I used a kraft wrapping paper, stamped brown snowflakes (from Holiday Treats), and brown satin ribbon.  This month's Papertrey Blog Hop Challenge is to reuse some of those holiday trimmings.  I chose to reuse the brown satin ribbon to create a birthday card for my mom and a thank you card for a friend.

I'm having a lot of fun using my new Cuttlebug too! 

I hope you had a wonderful holiday!! 
We are in the midst of a snowstorm which is perfect crafting weather!!
