Great card. I love all the colors and the paper.


Congrats! Please email me your address, and I'll forward it to Kim! :)


Hi there! Welcome to my stop on the My Favorite Things November Blog Hop! This release is full of fabulous sets -- I just can't choose a favorite! If you haven't seen all the goodness so far, head back to Kim's Blog and start from there! Go ahead -- I'll wait! ;)

My project features the set Wrapped in Love, which is this month's Who's That Girl? set. I had some fun with it, and I created a tall card (8.5" x 3.5") to hold all of the gifts! She's obviously been a good girl this year! ;) The main image in the set is WTG holding just the bottom box, and the other packages are additional images. I did a LOT of paper piecing with my BasicGrey Wassail paper!

Here's a closeup so you can see some of the details better (those tall cards are difficult to photograph!). I machine stitched around the paper panels, and I applied some Icicle Stickles to the bow on top. The top two packages are popped up on dimensionals.

There are sentiments in the set that are perfect for birthdays, too -- so you have a lot of possibilites! SO fun! :)

That's all for my stop! Next you'll be visiting my very sweet and mega-talented friend Joanne Basile -- get ready to feast your eyes on something fabulous! Also, don't forget to leave a comment at each stop along the way -- one of us has some blog candy to give away!

I hope you enjoyed your time here -- thanks so much for hopping by!
