Caardvarks Holiday Blog Hop :: Day 1



Hi there, Bleeps! It's time for a Holiday Blog hop sponsored by Caardvarks and Creative Cuts & More. The Caardvarks team used various creative die cuts from Creative Cuts and More to design holiday projects over the next three days. Today, we are all sharing holiday cards. So, if you have not decided on your holiday card designs yet, now is the time to jot down some ideas and place your die cut orders to start the assembly process before December arrives. We all know it will be here before we know it! There is a coupon code available for Creative Cuts and More as well as some prizes in store (scroll down below to find out more). So, let's get blog hopping, shall we?!
