Online Exclusives Blog Hop

Today's the day that the new Online Exclusives from Stampin' Up! are released!  Are you as excited as I am!  I'm hopping today with Demonstrators from around the world sharing projects that feature some of the Online Exclusives. I've used the One Horse Open Sleigh Suite which I know is going to be popular!  

My card is a Gatefold with a surprise inside.  Thanks to Patricia Fairless who shared this fun fold in a recent blog hop.  I knew I had to try it out with the Horse & Sleigh Bundle.  You're going to want to check out all of the Online Exclusives in my Store and grab yours before they are gone! 

I love the traditional feel of this suite.  Check out my gatefold card.

If you love this suite, check out my Monthly Card Club this month (more info below).  I'm featuring the One Horse Open Sleigh Suite - still time to register - registration closes July 9th!
