PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop

Today's the 25th...and you know what that means!  Not only is it Black Friday here in the states, but it is also time for another PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop!  I love the inspiration provided below.  Traditional Christmas.  So many gorgeous elements in the inspiration photo.  I was tempted to go with the damask from the wrapping paper but went with another of my long time PTI Favorites, Turning a New Leaf.  Kept it very CAS with a bit of bling.  I'm loving adding red bling to my cards this year to make holly.

If you're out shopping today, I hope your getting lots of good bargains or at a minimum having fun people watching!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Lynn and that you are doing some shopping yourself. I must admit I have been grabbing some bargains for myself - thank you online shopping! Sweet card too, love those berries :)

You are definitely rocking the holly berries this year! Hooray for red bling!

Maureen said...

simply sweet just like yourself :) LOVE the bits of bling and that fabulous sentiment...love the mix of fonts :) This would look marvellous on the new mantle (just sayin'!). I'm thinking now that I'm going to avoid the rush of Black Friday sales in store (yes, we are copying you up here now...sort of...the sales aren't everywhere) and online. What I need for the house is probably not on sale ...laundry hampers at Walmart! LOL. Hope you and your daughter, ahem, I mean Ryan get some great things!! Have fun! Hugs :)

The red bling is fabbo! Love how you transformed a non-holiday stamp into the perfect CAS holiday card. (And you're reminding me that I need to ink up that sentiment set!)

Fab CAS design too of course! :)
