Here is information for my project that you can get at Paper Wishes:

My projects are highlighting Shine Design Papers from Paper Wishes


This card is covered with red shine design with green used as accent pieces, the medallion is on a gold DP also from PW and the gold brad comes from the Christmas Creative Kit. I love tea bag folding, they add such a WOW factor to cards and they are very easy to do.

I also wanted to share 2 quick and easy cards with you!

I cut my folded cardstock with Nestabilities leaving the top uncut to form the card bases.  I then cut the White Shine Design with the same Nestie, added a large brad buddy (I love the snowman and his carrot nose!) and some ribbon from my stash.  The Ho Ho Ho is a rub on and I used blue foil both from the Foil, Glitter, Flock collection from We R Memory Keepers.

All 3 of these cards are headed for my Operation Write Home box which will be going out this weekend.  If you can, please think about sending on some of your cards for deployed troops to use to keep in touch with their families back home.  I know I would have loved to have these cards available when I was deployed.  I hope you liked my cards and are enjoying the hop.

Please remember, to follow the instructions above to be eligible for the prizes and good luck!  Now you need to go to the next blog on the list, all the talent is absolutely amazing!
