Up on the Roof Top Blog Hop




Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! Up On The Roof Top 2011 World Showcase Holiday Blog Hop.

If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Dawn. Wasn't that the coolest tree!

If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no worries, you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FABULOUS projects we have for you.

I'm so excited to share my project, Merry Mail Garland, with you!
**Edited to add** There was a question on how I made the Christmas lights so I wanted to be sure everyone knows that the tutorial can be found at UStamp with Dawn and Friends, just *click here* and register to join. You'll find the tutorial for this project and many others ALL FREE as a gift to you!! Be sure to go download the PDF tutorial! Merry Christmas!!**
Checking the mail is so much fun during the holidays. Especially when you start receiving "merry mail" - Christmas cards and photos from family and friends! Usually I just hang them on the fridge, but this year I wanted to display our "merry mail" somewhere special. 
Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink and Crystal Effects make these bulbs shine as they hold your "merry mail" on Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine. What a lovely way to deck your halls this holiday season!

I SO LOVE EVERY PART OF THIS!!! I usually hang a ribbon from one side of the banister to the other side in my home to display the cards but I love how this project can just be taken out each year as both as a memory saver and a decoration!
