on to my card:







i made a very CAS card using non-traditional holiday stamps from paper smooches! :)







i paper pieced the peas from 'fruitastic' and popped up the peas themselves for dimension. the sentiment is from the same set, and then i used the 'alphadots' stamp set to add 'this christmas'. :) all of that is on a white background that is also popped up on the card. i added a little sparkle with my viva pen in the corners!







that's it! you're almost done with the hop! now head on over to Karin's blog for some more holiday card fun!


enjoy the rest of the hop, and i hope it has inspired you to contribute some christmas cards to the cause!
