Are you ever in for a treat with today's sets and dies! Those who have already picked up previously released Christmas in the Air will be thrilled to see the Winter Fun Die Set, which includes a die for the tree in that set. And in case you haven't picked up Christmas in the Air (on sale now in the Verve store, by the way), now there's a slight variation of that tree in Plain Jane format: Winter Tree PJ! Not only that, but remember the sweet love birds in Love Story? Dies for those as well (Love Birds Die Set), plus the love birds make a reappearance in today's big set, Bright Spirits, which also includes, among many other wonderful images and sentiments, a six-point star image that handily works as a star, poinsettia, or snowflake. Versatility at its best! The Winter Fun Die Set includes dies for both sizes of that star, too! Whew!! Did you get all that? *grin*

For today's card, I went a little crazy combining papers and elements and came up with a busy, but fun holiday card. The papers are from Bo-Bunny's 6x6 Blitzen pack. I stamped the Winter Tree PJ onto ivory card stock, die-cut it with the Winter Fun Die Set, then paper pieced it using a green pattern from Blitzen. The tree is placed on a Sweet Scallop Tag and accented with one of the smaller birds from Bright Spirits (colored with Copics and die-cut with the Love Birds Die Set) and two snowflakes from Bright Spirits, colored with Copics and die-cut with the Winter Fun Die Set. If you look closely, you'll see an early peek (and literally just a peek) at one of tomorrow's featured dies, too. Julee peeked this die earlier this week, too. Check it out HERE.

Enjoy today's hop, and I hope to see you again tomorrow!
