Farwell House of Cards Design Team

Happy Holidays
Today I am participating in the HOC 3rd Term Blog Hop.  
I have so enjoyed my year on the DT.  
I want to say a special thank you to Mynn.  She is our fearless leader and wonderful at it.  As this was my first DT gig, I learned a ton from Mynn and she always helped out with so much patience.  
It has been much appreciated.

Thanks Mynn!

We are saying a fond farewell to some of our DT members and feel so grateful to those staying on.  
To say goodbye and thank you, we're celebrating with a blog hop!  
We were provided with this beautiful inspiration:

I used a couple of beautiful stamps from Great Impressions.  
They are fantastic red rubber stamps.  Check them out.
On my first card I used their Bare Birch Tree and sentiment stamps.
I thought this sentiment was perfect for this card.


See the clouds along the top?  For those I used Great Impressions fun Cloud Stencil Kit

I also layered some vellum trees from an old die.  I love all the layers.

For my second card I used Great Impressions Christmas Mistletoe and sentiment stamps.
You can barely see it, but I added little blue sparkly berries to the mistletoe.
 And a cute little bow.


Now get to hoppin'!  Your next stop is Cohenna's blog!  Don't forget to link up a project with us after completing the hop for an extra chance to win a mystery prize from one of our fabulous sponsors, too!
 
Have Fun!

Love the scene of birch trees and the wood patterned reindeer. I love wooden paper and I think it's a great idea to white emboss an image directly onto the DP. Great job!
