Darlene with you today sharing a creation for your inspiration, using dies from the Dies R Us Store.  If you've not popped over to the Dies R Us Store recently, DO IT NOW!  So many newly released dies that you won't want to miss out on.

Today I've created a festive holiday card using a Sue Wilson die set called 

Creative Expressions Die - Paper Cuts Collection - Christmas Tree

LOL ... this is what happens when you have one of those days that you

I die cut this beautiful die set from several different card stocks
before I actually settled on my design.  But it was well worth the effort and now I have other pieces and parts to create more holiday cards that won't take any time at all!!!  LOL

I've added small pieces of dimensional tape to the back of the
focus die cut to achieve dimension and had fun adding sparkle
to my finished creation.  Here's a close up  . . .

 Please remember, each an every day of the month there's a new inspiration sample shared on the blog by this fabulous design team.  Please be sure to pop in regularly.
