  55. Jen,

    This blog hop is my first visit to your lovely blog, and I wanted to say that I agree with what you said in your "about me" section, the crafty community is wonderful and really is a home away from home. Your card is beautiful - th background is so pretty and I would never have thought to use a background stamp on vellum and layer it over Kraft, but it looks fantastic! And those brads for the reindeer noses are too cute! I am having a blast seeing who is behind the door each day and finding so many new crafty friend to follow (such as you!). Thank you for participating and for the inspiration. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
