 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is


Happy Friday and Welcome to the last day of the hop!  Today's set is "Presents".  

For the July Christmas Card Challenge at SCS we have an added challenge to use Red, White and Blue so I pulled out MME "All is Bright" paper stack to create my cards using the "Presents" set.  I stamped the "Joy" sentiment in Blu Raspberry and the sentiment at the bottom in Kraft.

The inside:

 For this card I used one of the gift stamps and made it my focal point. I love the font on the Merry Christmas stamp!  I have to send a little thanks to Janine for her helpful tip on the presents!

The inside is similar to the first card except I used cream CS and masked the large present so I could add the tall one in the corner.

As a little review, I thought I would share a few more cards I created this week with our new releases. I mentioned on Monday that I worked late into the night on a couple of cards, this is the other panel I created that night.

Using the "Dino News" set I created another card for Haiti....

Don't forget to leave a comment on this blog for a chance to win today's feature and I hope you will hop along to see the beautiful projects created by the rest of my talented teammates!
