December 2012 Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Pals Hop (and my very first blog hop!) This month, we're featuring Birthday themed cards and projects! I hope you have enjoyed the hop and the amazing creations that the Pals have come up with. You've likely hopped over from Cindy Hall at http://prettyimpact.com, I'm stop number 10 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Birthday paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track!

In November when I signed up for the December Blog Hop I remember having a faint sense of foreboding doing this for my first time and so close to the holidays, but I charged on.  This weekend I was reminded about the blog hop and had to put aside my Christmas Cards, yes yes the cards are unfinished and yet to be mailed.  Since we took the children in to raise MY free time grows less and I have to be much more focused than I am used to.  So dear blog reader here is the card I came up with.  It's actually a BIG old CASEd card from one of the Splitcoast Stampers challenges.  I hope you find something useful from the card, paper choice or layout.
