On to my project today!!!  I have used the new background stamp set called Flurries.  I know I've said it before but seriously.........look at the detail in these snowflakes!  This has been heat embossed with white filigree embossing powder and you can still see all the detail!!!  My sentiment is from another new set called Essential Holiday Elegance.   This set offers such beautiful holiday sentiments.



I just couldn't resist adding some of these glitter jingle bells I picked up at a craft store.  Love them added to this "dressy bow".  I used the wonderful "dressy bow" tutorial by Jinny to make this bow.  Super easy!  Here's one more look from a different angle!




Well everyone, from here you need to hop over to Brenda's blog.  Enjoy the hop!!  Thanks for your comments.  Remember to order your Market Street Stamps from ihp before Wednesday to get the 15% discount!
