Time for another AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Hop  and this time we're featuring my favourite (I say that about them all I know :)) Christmas set Holly Branch.  I love the traditional holly for Christmas and these sentiments are great too.




The  Hop starts and ends at the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog.  Our November guest designer Sue McRae started the hop and from Sue you should have paid a visit to Andrea's Blog. If you've followed the hop you should have arrived with me from Andrea's !! When you leave me you're heading over to Kylie's  Blog. 


OK.....now that's all sorted out.... here's my card...........






I've gone with the CAS option today as the 'Boss' and I took off for a few days....last minute escape from Sydney! I've used one of the sentiments to feature and clear embossed one of the holly images to the corners of the ivory card.  The wonderful loopy border is thanks to Sue K who sent me this little Memory Box die.....mwahh!


Thanks for taking the time to call past........don't forget to add your name to the link thingy at the bottom of this post.........catch you later......
