So to begin, here is a card I designed for UStamp that I'd like to share with you.  This gate fold card features the Jolly Jingles Jumbo Wheel embossed in Silver. The beautiful Tempting Turquoise cardstock really showcases this color.  Don't you think?  I will be adding some more projects as the day progresses.  Hope you enjoy this starter.
Jolly Jingles Jumbo Roller and small stamp from Tags Til Christmas.

Once you've viewed my Christmas Stamp Camp projects the next stop on the blog hop is Louise Ryan who has a couple of last minute gift ideas to share with you.  Have fun and thanks for stopping by.
