Keeping Christmas Blog Hop - October 2020

 Good Morning all and welcome to Octobers' edition of the Keeping Christmas Blog Hop.

I am using a simple layout and easy design for my card for this month's Keeping Christmas. I die-cut a section of a 12x12 patterned paper to get my cardinal scene using a stitched rectangle. I used a layer of black cardstock in behind for a small frame.

I added some small rock glitter to some of the greenery then finished the card with some gems.

Supplies: White and black cardstock, Designer Paper-Simple Stories, Simon Says Stamp - Stitched rectangle, glitter, gems.

There is an abundance of inspiration as you hop along with the ladies listed below, be sure to stop and visit everyone below for more crafty goodness. 

It is only 61 days till Christmas, are you ready?

Believe in the Magic,
