MCT 27th Edition Blog Hop ~ You're Invited!

Good morning and happy Friday! 
Welcome to My Creative Time's October Release Blog Hop, I can hardly believe it's finally here!  This release has been so fun, I really hope you've enjoyed the week as much as I have! 
You should have arrived here from Miss Leanne.  If not then be sure to head over to Miss Emma's blog Miss Emma for the start.  I know you won't want to miss a thing!

My project is an invitation for our annual Christmas Potluck Party.  Since I decorated the "stamp" area, I would not mail these without an envelope.  I used "merry, and, bright, and the ticket" from the Holiday Ticket stamp set!  If you have a large stamp block you could put all the stamps using the same color on the block and stamp one time.  Doing it this way would allow you to get a bunch done fairly quick!
I used the Build a Banner stitched circle die then heat embossed the white powder.  Once dry, I used a gold pen and gold stickles on the little holly leaves.

A bit of green and red stickles adds sooo much in person.  Oh, I almost forgot that added small amount of diamond stickles to the trees.  :)  I'm having a thing for stickles lately...oh who am I kidding, I always want sparkle on my projects!
