We are also welcoming new teamie, Kathy!  Welcome to this fab team Kathy!
  
So what's a hop without prizes?  You can win a full set of all 16 Christmas rubber stamps!  We will let you know tomorrow evening who the winner is!  Here's a list of all the blogs taking part, and remember that you will need to visit them all and leave a comment on each one to have the best chance of winning:
 
Mary J (you're here!)
 
So I made two cards and here is the first...

 
This is such a cute stamp!  It's called Polar Pair and I matched the image with October Afternoon Very Merry papers and used my trusty Fiskars snowflake border punch.
 
Here is my second card using Squirrel Snack, a sentiment from the Handwritten Phrases set and matched up with K and Company papers...
