Holiday Blog Hop



Welcome to the very first 
TOP DOG DIES
HOLIDAY BLOG HOP
Hop on through each Design Team Member’s blog to see their fab creations:

**The party isn’t over just yet, though**
We’re giving away $50 Top Dog Dies eGift Cards to two lucky winners.  
Entering is easy: Just add your email address here and you’ll be included in the giveaway!


I loved pairing the classic, vintage look of the Joyous Collection by Authentique Paper
with the Sophie Mat Die Set  by Top Dog Dies.  When you have a beautiful set of dies such as 
these, not much else is needed in the embellishment department when creating a card!

 I also die-cut the scalloped border at the bottom using the Apron Card Finishers Dies.
Also included in the same set is an oven mitt...I thought it would make a cute pair of winter mittens!

You can earn extra entries by commenting along the blog hop and by following  
Top Dog Dies on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Even better news?
 You have until Friday Dec. 13 to enter and we'll announce the winners on Monday Dec. 16.
Thanks for joining us for our first – but definitely not our last – blog hop. Happy hopping!
