VC Rock Blog Hop for August

This is the last blog hop until next year and we are all sad to see VC Rocks close. I have had allot fun, met new members, and party hardy in our hotels. There were some awesome pool boys this including my own. Way to go girls!
Thanks to everyone behind the scenes and our lovely host Loni. Our challenge was too use our Big Shot, Punches, and Simply scored.  So many tools, so many ideas and way too much Fun!

I know you came from Shirley Northey at isn't her creations gorgeous.  If you get lost along the way and or would like to start at the beginning go to to VC Rocks Blog at here.
Here the inside;  I just love the Dazzling Details it adds a little Bling to the inside of the card.

As soon as I saw the Holiday Frame in the new Stampin Up Holiday Catalog, I just new it would
be one of  my first Christmas cards. When I saw this card on Stampin Connection, posted by  Joanne Travis, I just knew I would case it, her card is awesome. Making this card was so easy, just run your paper of choice through the Big Shot using the Holiday Frames. Then I chose what ornament from Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and stamped it on Whisper White card stock. Then I picked out the framelit that matched from the Holiday Ornaments and ran it through the Big Shot and done. A little silver glimmer paper and Basic Pearls for some fantastic Bling!

When I finished it reminded of some of the Vintage ones I hang on my tree every year.
