I will draw the winner after the hop closes on Wednesday December 15th after noon EST. Please check back then as I will post the winner on my blog later that day!

 And here is my DT creation for the hop:

I decided to make a Winter themed birthday card and used I'd Follow You Anywhere (by Crissy Armstrong). This time I colored the image using a combined technique of Copics and Pencils. (Pencils where used to deepen the shadows). The sentiment on the outside is from the new Friendship Tickets and cut out with the Shapeology ticket die.


The flowers I've used is a mix of Whimsy Buds, Prima & Petaloo flowers. DP is from Basic Grey and ribbon, lace, pearls and rhinestones are from my stash.




On the inside I used one of the Birthday Letter Seals. The flourishes is a Creatables die.


I added lots of bling using Stickles and Martha Stewart Glitter


So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Deb's blog where I know she has something amazing to show you!

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:


Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy the new releases!
