We are Hip Hopping along today with the Unity design team.  If you didn’t start at the beginning of the hop, make sure you head over to the Unity blog.  Time to kick off the holiday card frenzy!!!  You’ll be seeing plenty this month as I start to stock up and get ready.  Heehee.

Today I’m using the October 2012 kit of the month

labeled {from ours to yours}

I love holly… and it is hard to find a darn good holly stamp!  Unity solved that one!  Just look at that uber sweet holly!!!  I love the little bit of flourish included.  I popped up the leaves after I colored them and the berries with copic markers.

LOTS of NEWS today.

A brand new Kit of the Month for November.

and a FUN itty bitty sale.

Here are two of my favorite itty bittys…


Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog today.
