We just couldn't stop playing with the holiday theme, so we've got a second day filled with great ideas that you can start creating now for Christmas.  Along the way today, you'll find card and gift ideas, a scrapbook layout page or two and even a couple great decorating ideas.  We hope this hop gets you in the holiday spirit a little early this year.
We'd like to say a HUGE THANKS to our sponsor today.

A couple of years ago I purchased a couple of glass blocks to make light boxes.  Here’s how they turned out:

Both your cards are so cute. You have quite the knack for design and composition. Your cards are always "just right"! And I love those light boxes. I've seen them year after year, but never made them myself. Your look great. Love hopping with you...and learning from you.

As always, your cards are great! (I have had some glass blocks for years... And they're still sitting on my shelf with NOTHING done to them... Maybe soon? Ha!) Yours look gorgeous. Great hopping with you!

The cards are great and I purchased some light boxes but never did anything with them. This will inspire me to get something made with them.
