One of the blog posts is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD Store gift certificate. So, all you have to do is hop along and see all of the creations and leave a little love! You have until Wednesday, November 7th at 6 p.m.to complete the hop to leave comments.   Enjoy all of the beautiful designs featuring For the Love of Animals!

I'm using Our Daily Bread Design's "Sing for Joy" for my design today. It's a perfect set for designing a card for my growing Christmas card collection!






My design for today is a mix of oldies, but goodies!  Cosmo Cricket "More Jolly By Golly" papers,  Spellbinders Mega Nestabilities "Curved Rectangles," and buttons from my stash add up to a simple, shaped design. 





If you have arrived here from Connie's fabulous blog, you are hopping along just fine!



The talented Kathy is awaiting your arrival to view her lovely creation.

Thanks so much for joining us today For the Love of Animals!
