Can you believe we're at the end of my third term at House of Cards?!  Unfortunately we are saying a fond farewell to some of our DT members and I'm honored to be one of them who is staying on.  To say goodbye and thank you, we're celebrating with a blog hop!  You should have arrived here from Donna.

BEFORE WE START--we'd like you all to know that this blog hop is also a DT CALL!!! We're looking for crafters comfortable in any card making style and it might just be YOU!  You will be contacted by December 20th  to know if you've made the team. :)   Each DT member will just be in charge of one card/project per month plus commenting.  If you're interested in working with us a HOC for a six month term from January through June of 2017, please email Mynn at onastampageATgmailDOTcom with the following information:

Haha, this card is fun with the all green shades! I like the spin of seeing a green Christmas sock and not a red/white striped one!
Kind regards from stempelfrida

Thanks for playing with us at Craft your Passion Good luck!! Michelle(DT)
