Here is the complete line up 

Kristy - 
Jamie M You are HERE

If you're coming from CallyAnn's blog, then you're on the right track. If you just happened to stop by my blog today, be sure to head on back to Kristy's blog and hop from the beginning.

The reason for the season is first and foremost Jesus! Without him hell would await us all.
Another big reason for the season for me is giving. I love to make things and donate etc. I made my coworkers little treats. Here are some of them I made.
I used Inspired Stamps 1.5 inch Circle Christmas set on an ornament cut out from Joys of the Seasons cartridge. 
 The topper was cut with Jaded Blossom's Fancy Topper Die. The kisses have little saying on the bottom of them from Christmas Kisses set also from Jaded Blossom.

Now it's time for you to head on over to Lucy's blog

Thank you so much for hopping along with us today, and we all hope that you were filled with loads of Christmas joy, as well as loads of inspiration!
