Hearts come Home for Christmas!

Hello Friends!
Today I've created a card for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.  
I'm working on a few holiday cards so I thought I'd share one with you today!  I recently ordered some of the fabulous dies offered in the latest holiday releases by Memory Box and Poppy Stamps over at our Dies R Us Store and couldn't wait to get them die cut to see what I could come up with.  Hope you like it!!

The dies I've used are:
Memory Box 'Evergreen Trio'  (MBD-99240) currently Out of Stock
Poppystamps 'Country Houses'  (POPPY1252)  currently Out of Stock

 These fabulous holiday dies are going IN and OUT of Stock so quickly, if you want it and see it is in stock I advise you to get it on order right away!

To create the sky, I simply adhered a scrap piece of blue card stock to the upper portion of my Everygreen Frame.  I've added dimensional tape to the Evergreen Trio and placed in the center of my two frame trees and again used dimensionals on my Country Houses (see dimension achieved in photo above).   Both sentiment stamps are from 'older' Stampin' Up sets.

 WOW!  My team mates have been sharing some AMAZING inspiration for you each and every day of the work week and in so many different themes/styles.  Please stop back often and be sure to scroll back to see what you may have missed.  We each have our own unique 'style' and I'm sure you'll find something that catches your eye!

Yikes, Christmas will be here before we know it along with the cold, blowing snow...I hate thinking about it, but you have made a beautiful scene with the dies, and just think, you are one Christmas card ahead!! Another pretty one to add to your collection!!
