Craftin' Desert Divas Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog, My Cup Runneth Over!  Quite some time ago, I had applied for a Guest Design spot at Craftin' Desert Divas, and I was delighted when they invited me to join them this month.  I received the cutest Christmas stamp set to work with.  I promise, you will LOVE it.  It's called Elf Made; and it includes a girl elf, a boy elf, and five darling little sentiments.  It's SO perfect for designing all those special hand-crafted gift items, and attaching them to your creations to give your crafts that sweet, home-spun Christmas feel.
 
We're SO glad you're joining us today on the 9th Craftin' Desert Divas two-day Stamp Release Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here from Barbara's Blog, but if you didn't start at the beginning, you can go to the Craftin' Desert Divas Blog to get started.  The PRIZES for the Blog Hop are one stamp set per day from Craftin' Desert Divas, and a $25 Gift Certificate from Too Cute By Jessica (our partner for the Blog Hop).
 
Here is a sneak-peek of the first card I made using the Elf Made stamp set, which I already shared here on the 25th.  You can click the link to visit that post again, if you wish.
Then, for today's Craftin' Desert Divas Blog Hop, I created this sweet little Christmas card  - again using the new Elf Made stamp set; as well as some fun Simple Stories Homespun products, lots of machine stitching, a Making Memories poinsettia, a glittered brad, a Simple Stories BINGO card that I covered with the sentiment, some red and some natural May Arts Burlap String/Jute, and a little plastic candy cane that I placed in the elf's hand.  How cute are Craftin' Desert Diva's Stamps?
Just in case you get lost along the way, you can always go back to Craftin' Desert Divas for the line-up.  I hope you have fun hopping along with us!
 
Here are the specials you can enjoy during the November Release, and just wait until you see ALL the fabulous new stamps available.  They're ADORABLE!  AND.....All the stamp sets with images have a FREE SVG file (digital cut file).
