Yep, the penultimate hop of the year, here with us on Mo's Dream Team, with a great theme of Thank You chosen by our lovely Lou! So, that is where you should have started the hop, otherwise you should have made your way here from Gretha's blog.
I've chosen Grace and The Owl for my card, such an adorable scene! I then just had to use this new die set from Marianne Designs - the Holly Wreath and little branches and cones! Love it, and it comes with a little cardinal bird. Full list of Marianne loveliness below:
Silver Selection Holly Wreath - CR1387
Distressed Edge Square - CR1375
Reindeer - LR0179
Paper - love this midnight blue tree scene!
You may also have noticed the little berries that I used - well they started like this, just little polystyrene balls that I bought years ago from a charity shop and really useful at this time of year for snow scenes and the like. The pic below is just a small portion that I put in a container for ease of use (I have bags of them!)
I then discovered by accident, when using a heat gun to do some embossing, that of course they melt! But, I actually like they way the look after heating as they look a little more aged, natural if you know what I mean!
The main sentiment is Lili of The Valley which I stamped on to a bit of corrugated card to go with the rustic feel.
Well now it's time to send you on to the blog of my lovely matey, Debby.
Don't forget there are two $5 gift vouchers to spend in Mo's shop to be drawn from the participating Dream Team Designers comments so... make sure you pop in and comment on everyone's post for the blog hop to be in with the chance to win!!!
Hugs and Happy Hopping
