Dies R Us Inspiration - Home 4 Christmas

Welcome back friends!
Today I'm sharing a holiday card created for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog!  Christmas is really not THAT far away and I typically send out around 60 cards so there is no time like the present to get them started!  

You'll want to be sure to pop over to our Dies R Us Store for all your holiday dies.  There are SO MANY wonderful dies available through 40+ companies and I have no doubt you will find exactly what YOU need to create your holiday cards.
Here's a list of the dies I've used on today's creation:
CharmingXmas - Precious Marieke 'Village Ornament' #PM10037 (sorry ... sold out at the time of this posting)
Sue Wilson 'Italian Collection Decorate Frames'  #CED1503
Sue Wilson 'Finishing Touches Classic Rose' #CED1407 (leaves)
 Impression Obsession 'Alphabet Plain Upper Case' #DIE158
Memory Box 'Classic Numbers' #98362
Poppystamps 'Classic Ribbons' #1005

Holiday cards are always so pretty with a touch of sparkle
so I've added diamond Stickles to the roof of each building as well as the flower centers.

Remember you can stop by this inspiration blog every weekday Monday through Friday for new card samples using dies carried at the Dies R Us store.

We also have a challenge blog with a new challenge theme posted on the 1st and 15th of each month.  Won't you come join in our fun?  Who knows, YOU might be our next lucky winner of a gift voucher to the Dies R Us Store!  
Wouldn't that be awesome ... just in time for holiday shopping!
