My Craft Spot Blog Hop

It's Blog Hop time! Today is the day when all of my My Craft Spot's newest stamp and metal die sets will be available for purchase. All the sets are ready to ship from My Craft Spot. Today, for the hop I made a project using the Christmas Friends & Neighbors stamp set. Here is my project:
I made gift card holders using bags from My Craft Spot. I stamped Merry Christmas! from the Christmas Friends & Neighbors stamp set. The From: is another sentiment from the same set. I stamped directly on the bags and it turned out nice and crisp. I tied a Cherry Red traditional bakers twine bow across the top. 
These little bags can be filled with gift cards, candy, or any other small treat you would like to give someone. I plan on making several for Sammy's teachers and friends at school. Perfect for coworkers.
Kimberly, has so generously offered to give one of you, the new Ornate Labels-Christmas stamp set, just for visiting my blog during the blog hop. Yay! Just leave a comment on THIS post for a chance to win.

Have fun hopping around to all of the other blogs on today's hop. :)
