This November at Heart2Heart our themes will involve "NO"! It's my turn to host this week and our challenge is NO stamps.

Papers - Snowhaven; Stella (zip strip). Embellishments - Sparkles.

We hope to see you over at Heart2Heart this month to play along with our NO themes! Remember you have all month long to play along with each of these challenges :).

Sleigh Bells Ring

Are you listening? Every time I see this quote I immediately start singing "Winter Wonderland" in my head!

Papers - Wonderland paper pack, White Daisy (CTMH); Ink - Blush, Twilight, Grey Flannel (CTMH);
Stamps - Holiday Magic (CTMH), Winter Wonderland (Mama Elephant); Embossing folder - Allegro (Cuttlebug).
