My Creative Time December Release Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to My Creative Time's December Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived from the very talented Miss Katie's blog but if not you can click here and start from the beginning. I also will have a full list of the hop below! I would like to welcome our very special guest DT ~ Miss Courtney too! She is has some wonderful creations!

I promise not to keep you long today there are so many wonderful creations I want you all to see! I also told you all that this release you were going to fall in "LOVE" with ~ I know I did! Miss Emma just out did herself again!!

HUGE ANNOUNCEMENTS HERE!!!
 

P.S. If you watched Emma's  video yesterday in it's entirety, she had a few announcements in there for you! The MAIN announcement she wanted you all to know is that starting TODAY (Monday, December 31st) @ 8am PST, you can use the code: NEWYEAR at checkout in her store HERE to get 20% off your entire purchase! YEP, that is even including ALL of her stamps that are 40% off right now here! This sale will end on Sunday, Jan 6th @ midnight PST! 
 
That is not ALL either:
 
 
 
Emma designed this special stamp as a "THANK YOU" for all of your support throughout 2012! With all of her ups & downs this year, you were ALL here to support her in any way possible! Emma will FOREVER be grateful to each & everyone of you!  With that said, she is offering this mini stamp set for FREE to the first 150 shoppers starting @8am PST Mon, Dec 31st. NO SPECIAL CODE is needed. If you are amongst the 150 shoppers, you will automatically have it included w/your order! ONE per shopper please. If you miss out on being one of the lucky shoppers who get this for free, no worries because Emma will be offering it for sale for those of you who "Have to have it!";)
 
 
One more fun thing too ~ I know LOTS of EXCITING things happening ~ RIGHT!!!
***BLOG HOP GIVEAWAY ALERT***
For our Blog hop giveaway, there will be 2 winners chosen from ALL the comments combined!  This FIRST winner will have a "GUEST DESIGN SPOT" for our next release & the SECOND winner will win a $25 Gift Card to my store!  All you have to do is leave a comment here along w/the rest of the design team's blogs AND also leave a way for us to contact you!  Emma will use random.org to pick the lucky winners!  All you have to do is leave a comment on all blogs in this hop for more chances to win! The deadline is Sunday, Jan 6th at midnight! I will announce winners on my blog on Tues, Jan 8th!  EASY PEASY!!! GOOD LUCK!:)
 
So for my project today I decided to keep it simple and clean! I couldn't resist using this ADORABLE "Postage Stamp Frame Die" !  It has Emma's awesome stitching too! So I die cut it out a few times and pop dotted it so I could slide the "Just Tags" die behind it! My sentiments are from the new stamp set "Lots of Love" stamp set! Let me say ~  this stamp set has so many PERFECT sentiments!!! Just not for Valentines day either! Eek!!! Added some hearts on my tag and even behind so when the recipient pulls it out all the way they can see even more LOVE! Okay your next stop should be at the amazingly talented Leanne!
 
I must say my card looks so much better in person ~ again still working on my lighting! Trust me the Christmas guests at my home were cracking up at all the lights I had on this card! Unfortunately all those lights didn't help! LOL! I can't wait for spring ~ so I can take my photos outside again! We got about 8 inches of snow in the last week with more coming maybe tomorrow night! UGH!!!

 
Your next stop will be the very talented Miss Leanne.
 
Here is this AWESOME release:





 
Here is the complete blog hop line up ~ just in case you get lost along the way!
