Hi Everyone! Blog Hop Day 5 is here already and is the last day of the hop. I have enjoyed looking at my fellow hoppers sites and I hope you have too!

I have a 7' tall skinny Christmas tree that I plan to put this JOY banner on in a cascading fashion! Can't wait to see it and our other stocking creations being used for our holiday cards and decorations. The JOY banner uses dies for our Big Shot.

J – is the stocking from Holiday Stocking 124098

O – is from the Scallop Circle 113468 and 3-1/2" Circle Die

Y – is made from 3 candy cane images from Stocking Accents Die 124099
