This is a bit nerve racking at it's the first blog hop I've done for Sweetpea Stamps.  The theme for this hop was to use a Non Christmas Stamp to create a Christmas Card.  I chose a stamp from Elaine Cox's Art Collection called BESS - such a beautiful image!

USED: Stamps: Elaine Cox's Bess available here
or for the stamp plate featuring four stamps BESS, MIRANDA, KATIE and MAGGIE available here

Now back to the hop - don't forget to leave me a comment for a chance of winning a $20 gift card from Sweetpea stamps and your next stop is Lori
