     It's the last Blog Hop of the year and you have probably come from The Robin's Nest and now your here, at Carol Berns.  It's hard to believe this Hop is over, but now I get to mail out all the cards I made throughout the year, lucky me.
     This card was inspired by some scrapbook items I received from a friend who lost her mother and gave me some of her things, so I created "Retro Santa' who really has a folk-art look.  I found a set of stamps that are 50's retro and felt they added the perfect touch.  I added Stickles and inking along with buttons, which were so popular at the time this paper was created. Now it's time to send you to Michelle Cummings, but before I do I would like to take the time to wish you a Holiday Celebration filled with blessings, joy, good health and a house filled with loved ones.  Thank you for your support and I look forward to sharing with you in the New Year...keep smiling, Carol

Festive Friday Blog Hop

     WOW, am I really getting in the mood for Christmas, and I just could not contain my excitement so, Bli-bling, Bli-bling.  There is just no such thing as too much Glitz and Glitter for the Holidays.  So, welcome to the second to last posting for our Hop, and you probably came from The Robin's Nest. Would you like to learn how to make this card?  It's easy.
     This is all you'll need:
One plain card 5 1/2"x 4 1/2"
Red Cardstock 5 1/4"x4 1/4"
Green Decorative Paper (I topped it with Green Glitter Tulle)
Red Tulle 12"
Tim Holtz Die "Noel 25"
Silver Glitter Paper for 'Noel" and a small piece of Red for numbers.
     See how simple yet so lovely, in fact, I think I'll go back into my art room and make more. 
So off you go to Michelle Cummings  for more Holiday loveliness, enjoy and keep smiling, Carol.
