MDS Blog hop - Are you ready for the Holidays?

WELCOME TO THE "fresh and new" MDS BLOG HOP!
A bunch of us have joined together over the past two years to share our passion for digital designing with Stampin' UP's My Digital Studio. We have new designers that have joined us - WELCOME CORI, JULIE B. and our fresh newie ELIZABETH RUSH!  There are now 10 of us on the team!  These ladies are ridiculously talented in MDS and I am thrilled to be on this Blog Hop with them! You will find us blog hopping on the 2nd and 4th THURSDAYS of each month! We will have a "theme" selected on the first hop and then a "What we are doing in MDS" on the second hop. Also new, is the hopping method. Just click on the NEXT button and it will take you to the next person on the hop. We hope this inspires you to get into My Digital Studio and start creating! Would love to hear what you think of our "fresh and new" hop and projects, so please take a moment to let us know in comments.

This week, we bring you a variety of holiday projects! Some of us are doing Halloween, some are doing Thanksgiving and some are doing Christmas! I decided to do Christmas and get a head start in designing my Christmas card for 2013.  Not sure if this will be the ONE but you let me know what you think.

Here is the front of the card.
 Here is the inside of the card.

Here is the back of the card.

I used the Jingle And Joy Kit - Digital Download #132793 for the background DSP and color combo of Poppy Parade, Pool Party, Gumball Green and Basic Gray.
The snowflakes are from Winter Wonders Kit - Digital Download #132567.
The rest of it is a mixture of stamps for the wording. Love that you can FLIP an image to get that reflection look!  If selected, I would add a traditional Whisper White Baker's Twine bow to the front of the card where the button is.

Have you started thinking about your holiday cards yet? Will you go traditional or digital this year? It is October 10 so better get moving! Christmas will be here before you know it!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspires you today!
