12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

     Hi everyone and welcome to day one of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here from Lisa's blog.
    The idea of this hop is to give you 12 days of inspiration to get those Christmas projects done.  You may see cards, layouts, mini albums, altered items or home decor...you'll have to visit each day to not miss a thing.
     For my project today I chose to make a Christmas card, but a style you don't see so often...criss cross.  I liked how this style gave my Doodlebug Designs paper a real chance to shine.  With minimal other embellishments you really get a chance to see how awesome these papers are.
     One of the fun things about a criss cross card is the insert is another opportunity to embellish and use your cool tools.  To make my pull tab I used the Epiphany crafts shape tool along with some of the patterned paper.  I was really thrilled with how this project came out.
     Now before you head off to Scrappin Madge's I'd love if you followed me here and on my Facebook page (link on the sidebar).  I'll be back later in the hop schedule to share more inspiration with you.  Until next time...Keep Scrapping!
