Hip To Be Square Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Hip To Be Square Blog Hop! This is Melanie's newest set from Gina K Designs. And of course, another one that has oh so many possibilities! One of the favorite ways of mine to use this stamp, the big one in it, is to make a window scene, and that is what I decided to do with my card this time:



I created a wintry scene, and hung a wreath in the window, lol! I used the tree stamp from the new StampTV kit, Holiday Cheer for my scene here..the wreath was made with a piece of chipboard and I put some paper on it, sanded the edges and wrapped some silver cording around it and hung some silver bells from the middle. Fun!
