We are happy to have you join us.
We have some beautiful cards to share and prizes too.
There will be a draw of two winners from all the comments on the hop, so please leave a comment on every blog to be eligible. From My Sweet Petunia, winner's choice of an original or mini MISTI, and from Right at Home a prize package consisting of the Sunflower stamp set, Harvest Blessings stamp set (new release) and two Distress Oxide Inks - in Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint.

The deadline for your comments is September 8th, noon Central time, and the winners will be posted on the My Sweet Petunia and Right at Home blogs on Tuesday, September 12th.

Today I have two cards to share with you, and a video showing the Trio of Trees and Snowman Trio, both made using my MISTI and the Christmas Critters Stamp Set.

First up is the Snowman Trio. 
In my mini Misti, I stamped the snowman 3 times, the hat in different colours, and fussy cut all the pieces. I then attached the nose, mouth and eyes to my Misti lid and moved the snowman into place to stamp each. Up next, I added the scarf to the snowmen in the different colours, and coloured in using markers. I sponged some colour to each of the snowman as well as the hats. The panel was die cut using the stitched arch die and embossed with the snow drops embossing folder along with the arch die cut. I sponged on some tumbled glass to the inside of the arch, and attached the middle snowman with glue and the outside snowmen are attached on foam strips. I drew in the stick arms for the snowmen. The top panel is also attached with foam strips. In my mini Misti I stamped the sentiment, cutting and rounding the top corners to mimic the arch. A few sequins and Nuvo Jewel Drops finished my card.
Here is a close-up of my card.

My second card is the Trio of Trees.
Along with a close-up,
and the video showing the details of this card.
