Day 3 of the 12 days of Christmas

Hello! If you've come from Nancy's Blog you're hopping in the right direction...if not, head to Emma's Blog to start at the beginning! Today I have super quick and easy cards! These are 4.25 x 4.25 cards so they fit in a regular envelope. I used the XL label dies and stamped the XL Label Border of snowflakes onto it. I used the new seasonal distress inks to add color. And I stamped the sentiment from the All Around Christmas  set onto the Curly Label Die. Voila, cards done! :) That's it for me.....

***12 Days of Christmas Give Away Alert***
To qualify for ALL the AMAZING giveaways for the next 12 days, you must comment on every blog in this hop! You will have until Tues, Dec 13th @ midnight to have all of your comments in! VERY IMPORTANT, PLEASE LEAVE A WAY FOR US TO CONTACT YOU IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE WINNER'S!
There are some AMAZING giveaways for this special 12 day event & some SURPRISES to help celebrate "My Creative Time's" One Year Anniversary! Yep, Emma released her 1st set of stamps one year ago! So make sure you are tuned in because this is ONE hop you do NOT want to miss!;)
