EAD Designs Holiday Blog Hop......{Post 1}

Morning and Happy Monday Everyone!!

I have a very busy day up on my blog today....3 posts in total so if you are looking for
~my Trendy Twine project click HERE
~my Kraft Journal project click HERE

We are doing it again..... There's a group of us that are EAD Designs fans so we decided to inspire each other to use our goodies!  For those of you that don't remember, EAD Designs designed vinyl stickers and rub-ons.  Awesome products but the company closed up shop about a year ago.

What all of our projects will have in common is that we are all using EAD Design supplies with a holiday flair!
Want a chance to win some EAD Designs and some other goodies?  
Make sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs listed below for a chance to win! 
 There will be 4 winners!!!

You should be coming from 
She is the start of our mini hop....
Make sure to check out her project before moving along......

Now onto my card.....
I used the current sketch from
The Deconstructed Sketch

And designed this card.....
I started with a Kraft Cardstock base and used the designer papers from 
Echo Park~Season's Greetings. 
I designed my whole LO in the Silhouette Studio and cut the circles with my Cameo.
Since EAD Designs is no longer open I don't know the exact name of the stickers I used and can not link back to it :( But it was the perfect sized sentiment for my circle cut.
I embellished my card using my sewing machine, a button from my stash, some hemp twine and some enamel dots... which BTW I LOVE and have to add some more to my crafty stash.

Now it is time to hop along to 
remember to comment all along the line-up and maybe you will be one of the lucky 4 to win a prize pack.
 Commenting will be open until Friday, December 6th, 2013 @ 11:59 pm Pacific.
