Mojo Monday #290 and My Christmas Card Stash is Low Blog Hop -

Hello Friends -
I hope you have had a good week!

Super busy here . . . mostly my own doing.  But those issues are for another day!

Welcome to the My Christmas Card Stash is Low Hop. If you are new to the Tool Shed, please become a follower and let me know you were here!

I was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch here and this is what I made:
This is a 5.5" x 4.25" card.
This card is a bit different than what I would usually make.  I used the same print paper just turned 90 degrees to give some cohesion rather than use more printed paper.  The little house is punched from another paper piece of the 6x6 pad.  {I used all of the polka dot papers in this pad and have all of the stripes and many of the prints left that I am never quite sure how to use.  My own personal challenge is to find a way to use all of these prints!}
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics
Patten Paper - My Mind's Eye
Sentiment Stamp - Iron Gate Stamps
Ink - Staz-On {Timber Brown}
Punch - Martha Stewart Crafts
My Stash - Twine, Mounting Tape, Adhesive
There will be 2 Blog Candies for this Hop!

First, There will be a stash prize given out randomly to 1 comment from all the blogs. You MUST comment on all the blogs! You will have until Tuesday the 30th at 11:59pm CST to comment. Sarah will announce the winner on Wednesday morning.
