Becky & Melanie Blog Hop

Happy Holiday Hop! Becky and Melanie (designer for Gina K. Designs) thought it would be great fun to team up for a little Holiday Hop today. We are showcasing Becky's new set, "Warm Woolen Mittens" along with Becky's new cut file "Grand Banners" and "Grand Banners - Winter Sentiments" and Melanie's new set, "Lots of Letters" today. Joining us are some dynamic designers that will knock your socks off with their beautiful work today! 

Make sure you visit everyone's blog to leave a comment and be entered to win a clear "I do!" and "Beyond Baskets" stamp set! Now onto today's projects!
For our team, we were asked to create banners with matching card. Now, let me warn you. I am behind in my Christmas decorating. Right now the only thing we finished decorating is the pergola in our backyard that we decorated with ornaments around it and this tiny tree.
And, right  now that's the best spot I can find to hang my banner. 


Here's a close up of the banner. I created the background using the border from  Warm Woolen Mittens set. stamped in various green ink. 


And, here's a pic of the banner with the tree. Sorry for the grainy picture. It is really hard to get good picture with the lighting we have.


The color on this card makes me happy. :)


I have to thank Becky for taking my suggestion and created this amazing set. She truly is fun and fabulous to work for. I am sure you will love this set as you hop along and see more inspirations.
