have a holly jolly christmas...

{this is my 2nd post for the day...please see my Skipping Stones post HERE}

Welcome to the Torendi Customer Blog Hop!
{it officially starts at 6 am PST}


You should have arrived her from Ayana's Blog!!!  Thanks so much for joining us this month Ayana!

If not, make sure you start at the beginning because you don't want to miss out on any of the FUN....it all starts at the Torendi Blog!

The theme for today's hop is anything holiday! 

I still needed to add to my Christmas Card stash so I designed this one especially for today's hop!


All the paper is from the Sassafras Indie Girl Wee Bundle...I've had this idea brewing in my mind for awhile...I hadn't inked up my PTI Friendship Jar set and 'needed to'..LOL...Do you see the bling on the top of the tree?  Everything is nestled on a fabriano base...A non-traditional Christmas card...my favorite kind.  You don't need holiday oriented paper and supplies to make a holiday card....

*NEW*
