Stampin' Pretty Pals August Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “My Happiest Season.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
One of my favorite seasons is Christmas!  I love the crisp winter air and the first pretty white snowflakes, but most of all I love Christmas movies!  Elf is one of my absolute favorites, so when I saw the Christmas Means More stamp set in the Mini Catalog, I knew I had to have it.  The sentiments are from some of your most beloved Christmas movies...and they are awesome.
I used the Trimming The Town Designer Series Paper to create the winter village scene on the front of the card.  The coordinating colors of poppy parade, misty moonlight and old olive are so very Christmasy.  This card reminds me of Santa's village with a little bit of Elf'ness thrown inside.  
Make sure to check out the Elf Movie Trailer and maybe the movie Elf for a fun holiday time.
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on September 9th when our theme is “It’s the Sentiment that Counts.” The Design Team will showcase a sentiment as the focal point of their project. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.
