Holiday Hopping With Rubbernecker Stamps

This is my second post for today. If you are here for the Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop, CLICK HERE or scroll down one post (also a Rubbernecker card)!

Welcome to the Rubbernecker Stamps Holiday Hop! Thank you SO much for joining us. Our hop today will be filled with holiday fun to inspire you to start those holiday projects! 

If you arrived here from Joan's blog, you are in the right place! If not, start at the beginning at Bev's blog so you don't miss out on the Sisterhood's awesome projects AND be entered into a RANDOM drawing for your choice of ONE Rubbernecker Stamps SET!!  

Yes, you read right!!  A SET, not a single!!  Now, how AWESOME is that?!  Mr. Rubbernecker wants you to be able to choose, so you will LOVE what you get!!  We know that you are busy, so you will have until Thursday, November 17, to hop and comment.  Our winner will be announced on the RUBBERNECKER BLOG on Friday, November 18.

On to my card. I wanted to make a holiday card with stamps that you might not necessarily think of as holiday stamps. I chose Create A Garden Set 2 and made a little poinsettia planter with pine boughs:
Sweet and simple. I LOVE the DCWV Christmas Glitter Matstack! The colors in it are beautiful and perfect when you want to add some sparkle without mess! :)

The Stampin' Sisterhood at Rubbernecker Stamps also has a BIT of exciting news to share!  We will be starting some AWESOME Rubbernecker challenges next Sunday, November 20th and hope you will join us for SISTERHOOD  SUNDAYS!! Who knows?  You could win a prize on Sunday too!  Thanks again for stopping by~
