Welcome to the "Reason For the Season" blog hop. We're happy to have you all here with us today to celebrate the reason for the season. Each blogger will have their own interpretation of their reason for the season, and I hope that you find loads of creative inspiration along the way.

So I had seen this card in the Silhouette store and thought it was perfect clean and simple.  Not a huge fan of the green paper with the corner detail but I thought it turned out ok...

Cuts and card come from the Silhouette store
