Christmas Blog Hop - Blank Page Muse

Hi Gals,
Thanks for stopping by to see my project for the BPM Christmas Blog Hop.  You will find loads of inspiration along the way from Christmas gift giving ideas to ornaments to decorate your home. Make sure to visit all the participating blogs and then leave a comments about your favorite idea/s on the BPM post. You could win a fabulous grab bag of assorted stamps. (Last day to comment is December 8th.)  Grab some hot chocolate and come along for a spectacular trip!  You can find the Blog Hop HERE.
Here is a fun and frugal idea done by mixing and matching stamp sets.  Try looking at your non-holiday stamp supplies in a new light and get thinking "outside the gift box."

I created a galaxy sky background with texture stamps.  Even the sentiment originally came from a beach themed stamp set.  A dress form is not usually a Christmas image but I designed the second card for a crafty friend who enjoys sewing.   I also made tiny spools near the doll's hands to accentuate the seamstress theme.  I hope my cards inspire you to stretch your supplies and your creativity and look at your stamp sets with new eyes.
