believe in the magic...

Hello and Welcome to the EAD Designs Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from Liz's Blog:  Liz's Paper Loft

If not, you'll want to start at the beginning which is the EAD Designs Blog.  Remember, every week there is a give-a-way to someone that has left a comment on the EAD Designs blog along with commenting while they hop!

Can you believe that November is NEXT week?  What the heck?!

I decided to share a Christmas card with you today:




I was inspired by the latest muse over on the Case Study Challenge site:



I love CASE Study


Isn't this a beauty by Niki Estes??!!


I was also inspired by the Jingle Belles:


The talented Noelle McAdams is the guest designer and she is calling out for 

SOFT Christmas cards/projects

So I used some of my Raspberry Fizz wool felt for the Christmas ornament...I love how it pops off of the New Leaf cardstock.  The polka dots are vintage Cornish Heritage Farms.

Well, you made it to the end of the hop...we hope that you enjoyed yourself and have been inspired!

Don't forget about the current EAD Designs Color Challenge:


Everybody is a winner that plays:


...and always remember...
