Practical Scrappers Blog Hop

Happy New Year Everyone!!

I hope you all had a marvelous holiday.  Christmas has always been my favorite holiday, reflecting on the birth of Christ, spending time with family and friends, and of course the food.  All the wonderful food!  And I love New Years and the chance to start over again.

New Years always gets me in a crafty mood as I clean up my craft room and start putting away the tools and paper that I have used over the month.  It's those scraps of paper that brings me to my craft for the blog hop.

This hop is all about clearing out the old to prepare for the new. The new CHA papers of course.  This hop is to help give you ideas on how to use up those scraps.  And since I have a bunch of Christmas scraps from projects I made some Christmas Thank You cards to give out to those who blessed Hubs and I with gifts.

I used Sketch 132, a Deconstructing Jen sketch to create this card.  I followed Jen's design and viola, a card was created.

Here's my card...
