Just INKlined DT Blog Hop

I can't believe it's November already - where has the year gone!!! But since it's the first Monday of the month it must be time for the Just INKlined monthly DT Blog Hop - woohooooo.

You should have arrived here from Lydia's blog - but if you didn't, head back over there as she's starting us off this month.

This month our challenge is to use punches - use at least 2 different ones. Considering I have 5 draws full of punches I figured this challenge shouldn't be too hard - LOL. I ended up using 5 different punches here  - MS border snowflake punch (and the little snowflakes that I punched out were used too), MS corner snowflake punch, corner rounder punch, SU 1 3/8" circle punch and SU scallop punch.

I have raised each layer from the one below it after the blue layer to add in some extra dimension. the sentiment is from Magnolia. The image I used is one of Just INKlined's gorgeous Christmas scenes called Little Church in the Snow - and you can find it HERE. There's quite a bit of glitter to sparkle up the snow - it's sooo pretty IRL!

Your next stop on the hop is Jak's blog. If you get lost along the way all of the blogs are linked on my sidebar under the Just INKlined logo - and here's the hop order....

Lydia, Debbie (ME), Jak, Peri, Cathy, Toni, Joyce, Karen
