Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thanksgiving stampers,  I hope this holiday finds you all content and full of joy.  We have our children here visiting so we are so very happy today to celebrate together.

Today for our hop we are working from a sketch.   My card for the hop is a clean and simple card.  Sometimes when you are making Christmas cards you need a few that do not require extra postage and are fast to do. The card I am sharing today fits the bill, enjoy.
