Mixed Media Hop with Tando Creative

Today is the final day of our hop with Tando Creative. Oh my has it been filled with great projects and I have so many ideas to do more with these fantastic new chipboard products.

There are PRIZES... three of them with Stampendous and Tando Creative goodies. Just stop by the Stampendous blog for more details, but just comment and check back on the company blog where they will announce the winners.

The hop today is BIG so if you are just getting started here you'll want to stop by on the Stampendous blog to get started. Now if you've been hopping with us you probably came from Dana's blog and after my blog you'll hop on over to Gez's blog.

And now here is my project in picture!

All these great images came from ONE Festive Background stamp!
