Welcome to November's Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! Our projects this month are Holiday Creations, please be sure to hop all the way around for lots of inspirational projects created by the design team.  You may have  arrived here from my talented and lovely friend Stesha   from the United States, or if you are starting here, welcome! Combing the trees from the Tag Buffet Project Kit, the gold words from the Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin Kit and the Heart Warming Hugs Designer Series Paper made creating this cards a joy! The ribbon was coloured using the Dark Real Red Blends and layered over the tree and under the sentiments. A generous gold bow and a trio of gold Metallic Pearls completed my cards. Next up in today's hop is my sweet and inspirational friend Janneke   in The Netherlands, I'm looking forward to seeing what gorgeous creation Janneke has to share with us.
