A Christmas Wish vintage Christmas card

Happy Halloween and welcome to the Unity Blog Hop!

I hope you are leaving comments along the way as there is a fun prize up for grabs!  If you haven't been to all of the blogs you may want to start at the beginning at Andrea's Blog.

For my card, I didn't go with a Halloween one instead I jumped to our next holiday here in Canada - Christmas.  I have used the Vintage Christmas collection by My Mind's Eye along with a PTI die and of course a Unity Stamp.  I used a stamp from the October SMAK kit - I LOVE the SMAK kits, so versatile for cards, layouts and Project Life!


Here is what the whole SMAK kit looks like - I have already used some of these in my December Daily album (you will see that later on in the month with my Elle's Studio posts)

Now be sure to leave comments along the way as we have a prize up for grabs from one of the blogs.
