I'm happy to be joining my fellow designers at Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps! a Heinrich Company for our July in Christmas. Here are my two boxes of cards which is the day I'm doing for the hop. The first one holds A2 note cards and envelopes using A Trip to Lancaster. This was an ideal stamp set for me to use because I just visited Lancaster county in PA. last September.  It is fun to see the horse and buggies driving along with modern day cars.  My second box of cards holds gift cards which we can all use during the holidays. For this small box of 3" gift cards I used the stamp set called Christmas Cardinals . Scroll down and visit everyone else's blog to see the gift boxes and cards they created.
Below are the designers participating in the hop. Some may have a project and some may not depending on the day.
