MCT 60th Edition Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the My Creative Time 60th Edition Release Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the very talented Jessica.  If you just happened upon here, you might want to head over to Emma's blog, to the beginning of the hop.  This is a very fun release, and I hope you are as excited about it as we are!

My card today uses the new You Deserve a Break stamp and die set.  I'm having so much fun with this set!  I love my hot chocolate, and who wouldn't love to receive a Christmas mug of cheer?  I used the big mug die to make a shaped card, using patterned paper from Carta Bella's Christmas Delivery collection for my top layer.  Don't you just love the little marshmallows floating in the hot chocolate? There is so much you can do with this set!  I took one of the sentiments and stamped it onto a die cut made with one of the Stitched Belly Band Dies.  Then I added some holly and berries made with dies from Boughs of Holly to add some more Christmas cheer!

Here's a closer look at You Deserve a Break.  It is available now in the My Creative Time Store

Staring THIS Friday, October 21st, 2016 @ 8AM PST, our "Freebie" for this release is this awesome "Inside Christmas Cards" stamp set.  It will be given to the FIRST 100 shoppers!  If you are one of the first 100 shoppers, it will be automatically added to your package at the time of packaging/shipping.  Once the first 100 shoppers come through, the set will be available for purchase.  So if it's for sale in the store, you are not one of the 100.  No exceptions will be made.  This freebie set is not a part of the "bundle" and will be sold separately!
