Hello again!!!

If you are here to see the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge please go down one post or click right HERE!!!

I'd love for you to stick around and check out today's Our Daily Bread Designs December Release Blog Hop as well :) !!!

If you came here from Lorelie's Blog than you are right on track.....if not please start at the ODBD Blog and I'll see you back here shortly!!!

Since you all had so much fun with the *Scrabble Game* last month, we thought we do it again this month....of course you will have a chance to win a prize as well - Kelley generously offered to give TWO Lucky Winners their choice of ONE FREE Set!!! Winners will be chosen by December 2nd, 8PM EST!!!

Before I reveal my secret word I'll take the opportunity to show you my creation!!!

My idea for today's Blog Hop came from three sources!!! First this weeks ssnotime115 - Mass Production, the second one is from this week JUGS9 - Template Challenge and the third one is from the CAS43 - Autumn Make Over. I used this card as my inspiration.

The giftbox is from this *Captured Card Case* template.


























I used the gorgeous new *His Gift* Set. I love the embossing with this image.....I think it is sooooo elegant plus it's perfect for mass production!!!

All the new Sets are now available over at the ODBD Store......go check them out!!!!

Thank you for being patient....here is my *secret* word BLESSED.

Now it's time for you to hop on over to the super talented Chris !!! Have fun playing and thank you for stopping by today!!!
