Hoppin' around the Christmas tree

Hi Oddies!
Today we are having some special hop along fun with the new releases! This release has brought a ton of fun and new things... aren't you LOVIN that new curly girl Gwen?! And today is no exception. Up until now all the clear stamp sets have been a 4" x 3" size but we've stepped up our game and stepped up the size! There are two sets this release that are a bigger 4" x 6" size! So say hello to Warm Wishes Tia and Deck the Halls Tobie!


My card today features Tia and her cute little penguin friend from the Warm Wishes set. Both of these two polar pals have an armload of presents to help spread the Christmas cheer to the rest of the gang hanging out in the snow. :)
Aren't they just so sweet? To give you some extra inspiration with all of these new Christmas stamps the Odd Girls are hopping along and sharing different takes with these new sets. If you have come here from Sarah's blog then you're doing great! If not, be sure to start at the beginning over on the SOG blog. Enjoy and make sure to comment on every blog for a special surprise giveaway, you have thru Sunday at 11:59PM EST to get your comments in! Winner will be announced on Monday. So get festive and get hopping... your next stop is Caz's blog!
