Red Rubber Designs First Thursday Blog Hop

It's the First Thursday (Of August -- cannot believe it) which means Red Rubber Designs is releasing new Christmas stamps.  They like to think outside of the box, no Christmas in July for them:)
This means they are hosting their montly blog hop and showcasing a featured stamp set.  The Design Team is creating all kinds of fun Christmas art with this Spotlight Stamp set called Holiday Wreath.
(By the way, you should know the Spotlight Stamp is being offered for 40 percent off at the
RRD shop!) 

Honestly, I didn't realize how versatile this set is until someone pointed out all the layering possibilities to me.  And I like the idea that I can add different colors to an image by layering it. 
So here is what I came up with, my holiday door.

I used papers from the Rustic Chic line as well.
The inside of my card is below.
I was able to use the tiny little evergreen sprig to create my bough.   
(You'll have to see how one of our designers created a whole tree using this tiny stamp! )
The wreath on my tag comes from this set as well, I just omitted the wording on it.

Now, here are the blog hop details:
It looks like one of Santa's elves has been causing a little mischief in the workshops and craft areas of our Design Team members. Look closely at each project on the hop and you will see that said elf hasleft a little image of his jolly employer on one of the Design Team member's creation.
Find the picture of Santa then let us know where you found it (whose blog).
Email your name and the name of the blog where you found the picture of Santa to .
Every correct answer will be entered into a random draw for the Spotlight Stamp Holiday Wreath.
Contest ends Sunday, August 5 at midnight (CDT).
