Clearly Besotted 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop

eatdrinkmaureenplut

Hey everyone!  I have an exciting post for you!  When I heard Stephanie over at Clearly Besotted Stamps was lining up designers for her 2nd Anniversary celebration, I invited myself! LOL  I had to step down from the DT last September as I started my Masters :(  However, I’ve been keeping close tabs on all of the CBS success :)  So today I want to wish Stephanie and the DT a HUGE Happy 2nd Anniversary :)  Stephanie sent me some super cute Christmas stamps to play with.  I’ve use a sentiment form Most Wonderful and the wreath from Hanging Around along with the matching die.

2nd Anniversary Banner
