Clear Dollar Stamps December Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to
 December's Blog Hop for 
I'm glad you decided to join us!

Did you arrive here from 
Jerusha's beautiful blog?
If you did you are on the right track.
If not click HERE to see
 the hop from the beginning!

Our theme this month
 is "White as Snow".

I decided to make a white card for this theme.
I used a clear stamp set called Light of Winter.
 This set was also released in
 digital format this month! Whoo hoo!
Nice to have choices!

To keep my white card interesting -
 I used three different Cuttlebug embossing folders. 
Two of them are snowflake ones and the 
other is houndstooth.
I kept my coloring to a minimum
 just to highlight the images.
I also used the Tabs and Tags die cut set from CDS.

Your next stop on this 
white as snow blog hop is:
I'm sure she has something 
wonderful to share with you!

Leave a comment for a chance
 to win a $25 gift certificate to
 CDS for digital images!!
 One lucky commenter will win!
Thanks for spending part of your day with us!
Enjoy the rest of the hop!
See you soon!
