Embracing Grace Anniversary Hop!

I have two posts today. Please scroll down for my Mojo Monday post. Thanks!!

Hello! Happy Monday! This month marks the One Year Anniversary of the Embracing Grace collection of stamps illustrated by Emily Burger.  To celebrate, the Baker's Dozen is highlighting Emily's very set Love Grows Here. I adore Emily's whimsical designs, and this particular set is my absolute favorite of hers. It was the first Taylored Expressions set of hers, and the images/sentiments can be used all year long!

Emily has generously donated two sets of mirror cards from her etsy store to go to one lucky winner (so you can keep one and give one as a gift).  The winner will be chosen by a random drawing from all of the comments left on all the posts in today's blog hop (one comment per blog, please) and will be announced in Taylor's blog post tomorrow morning. Be sure to browse Emily's Etsy store - it's full of some wonderful scripture and encouragement items that she has designed!

Here's the card that I made for Emily:

I used the wintery tree scene on my card today. I added a few snowflakes around the tree, but otherwise kept my layout fairly simple. I simply embellished with a felt snowflake and some ribbon/twine.

Here's a scrapbook layout (that I previously showed in July, here) using a different image from Love Grows Here:
