Now to my card:)  Are you ready for Christmas?  I'm always ready for Christmas;)  So you know I was excited to use the fun new ornament dies!  This set has a bunch of little builder dies so you can create all kinds of round and shaped ornaments.  It even includes a little ornament hanger, so cute! 


I took out my foil card stock to create my ornament and couldn't resist adding a PS critter:)  The little Christmas mouse and sentiment are from the Santa Paws set.  And that cute little tree branch is from the new set Holly Jolly.  Here's a little close up of the reverse cut ornament...


Next on the hop is the fabulous Jocelyn Olson!  Love that gal!  Enjoy!

Mahalo,
