Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for September.  This month we are showing off our favorite new products from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  We hope you enjoy our projects!

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Becky Volpp at InkBlossomwithBecky on the Pals Hop.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.
We die hard stampers have a difficult time with new catalogs; it's so hard to not want everything! For the past 5 or 6 years, I've created a holiday card for a business owned by a friend. Each year I look for a stamp set that will work for that project. This year Berry Merry caught my eye. I love to hear the feedback from Mark's clients and work to create a card that will stand out from the pre-printed cards his clients receive from other service providers. This is one of the choices I'll be providing for this year's card. 
I am loving A Little Something for the background stamps in the set. I used Versamark and the snowflakes to add some detail to the background. The sentiment from Berry Merry is embossed onto Night of Navy with a mix of Silver and Iridescent Ice. Tombow, 'green glue' was used to attach the sentiment to the Silver Glimmer Paper. The Iced Rhinestone Embellishments finish off the card front.

This is my first go at a tunnel card. Look out, they are addicting and really pack a wow! If this is the card that is chosen, I may be over my addiction after making 200 of them! 

I would love your feedback on this project. If you have any questions or thoughts, please leave a comment below.
