Here is what I made for this hop. Kryssi and Angela hit it out of the park with this month's releases. I particularly fell in love with the Remember December set - it's perfect for scrapbooking and documenting holiday memories! I'll be showing you how I used it in my December holiday mini-book later on in the month, but for today I've used it to make a single layer card.

I thought the circles in the Remember December set were super cute, so I paired them up with some circle stamps from the Sunny Skies set to create a sort of confetti background. I wanted to use the beautiful new Mama Elephant pigment ink pads so I made this card really colorful :) The sentiment and the mini stars are from the new Merry Greetings set.
