Today I'm taking part in a mini (well, really tiny) blog hop with a few friends who are also Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  A couple of ladies have had to pull out, leaving us with only four participants!  We have all made something using products from the Holiday Catalogue, that is current until the end of January 2013.  We'd love you to visit all our blogs, and leave some 'comment love' so we know you've been!

You may have come here from Nikki Sadler's blog ... but if not, no problems.  At the end of each team member's blog post, we have linked to the next person in the loop.  There are only 4 of us all up, so it's pretty hard to lose your way!

I have made a couple of Christmas cards to share with you.  I've used LOADS of new products.

Here's the first card:
