Well here we are in September already! Where did the summer go? Well fortunately for us here in New England the summer weather continues! It's been hot & beautiful.  Could use a bit of rain, but so  not complaining about the extra pool time!  I hate everything about the winter! lol

So this month on the 
Inspire Create Share Blog Hop 
we are featuring creations from the new Holiday Catalog! And it's a good one!!!!! I couldn't decide where to start! lol

So here's my creation this month:

 I'm in love with this Woodland Textured Embossing Folder!  I can see so many uses for it! All seasons!!! Here I tried to make it look like white birch trees-like the ones in my yard! With snow falling! Although that part nearly killed me! lol! Anyway, I love how the trees came out here!

The sentiment is stamped from the beautiful Flurry of Wishes stamp set.  I love those snowflakes! Just couldn't get into them just yet! lol

I really wanted to feature some of the fun paper here. The large gift is from the amazing Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum. It's so cool!!!  The gold is simply our Gold Foil Card Stock. But the sentiment is also stamped on a vellum-Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack. It's a sweet little 6x6 stack with some beautiful golds & black in it! Very versatile!

The ribbon is the new 1/8" Striped Ribbon. You get 2 colors in 1 
pack-Real Red & Garden Green. And if you look very closely, you can see the cool Gold Cording Trim on the red package!

So now go visit Megan's blog & enjoy her creation! She's new to our hop so we welcome her warmly! I bet she'd love to hear a comment or two. Just click on the link below or on her name. We also welcome Anna & Diane! Don't miss their first posts on the hop!!!
