Here's today's freebie:
There will be a new Too Cute By Jessica SVG freebie for Day 2 of the hop.

If you came from Barbara's blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you will want to start at the beginning with Tara.  Now on to my project, I created a single page 12x12 layout using the Simply Christmas stamp set:
I used the Winter Woodland cartridge to cut the title and the snowmen for my layout.  The snowflake border and individual snowflakes were popped up on foam dots for added dimension.
The sentiment is from the new Simply Christmas stamp set and was stamped on a hand cut flag.  A small bow in Blue Berry Trendy Twine was added as an accent.

Next on the line up is the amazing Shelly.  Be sure to hop with us tomorrow too.  Tara is giving away one stamp set each day of the blog hop and Too Cute By Jessica is giving away a $25 gift certificate to her store.  Winners will be picked from a different blog each day so the more you comment the more chances you have to win!  I would love for you to become a follower of my blog too!

Stamps are available in the Craftin Desert Diva's shop now.  Please join us on Facebook at the Craftin Desert Diva's Gallery we would love for you to share your projects using the Craftin Desert Diva's stamps.
