Today is the start of the Holiday Lovers Blog Hop over Amy Tsuruta's Blog . I have followed Amy's blog for a long time and she always does some fun event. She is a true coffee lover, so if you are too, create a card and post it there, read her post and make something anyway, comment, there are super sponsors and prizes. I am joining in just for the fun! It is Christmas time and time to play.
I did not have my card ready this morning, but made it just a bit ago. My card base is a soft blue and it has been embossed with snowflakes, stamped with the sentiment, a couple of rhinestones added. I used a die cut snowflake, stamped and die cut everything with a set that my daughter Amy got me a few months back. The stamps and dies are from Sizzix, credits for the stamp designs go to Stephanie Barnard, I loved using them.This is a fun set for winter!
Thanks Amy, for such a nice holiday blog hop! Amy has a full list of the sponsors, prizes and all the participants. Happy Wednesday, I am having some hot soup for lunch!
PS...I also forgot about Blog Candy....Did not have this up when promised...sorry! Maybe no one will want this, but here it is my prize package. It is a handmade vellum giftie bag using a new, not released die cut from Stampin'Up!I made a coffee cup snowflake tag, inside is a snowflake tag, a mini envelope with gold and silver sequins, some bakers twine and a small clothes pin! This tiny bag can hold a lot including your favorite beverage gift card! There might be a surprise or two included when this is posted. Please after I post the winner, get me your address as soon as possible so I may post this tomorrow. My winner will go live as early as possible after 11:59 pm Pacific time, when the commenting officially closes! Good Luck! If your name is drawn and you don't want the prize, email me and I will draw another winner. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and left comments.
