"Sparkling Wintry Sensations" Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle "Sparkling Wintry Sensations" blog hop, and my NEW BLOG! If you hopped here by way of Crafte-Marie's blog, then you're in the right spot. If you'd like to start from the beginning and become eligible for SIX great prizes, then click here, http://sparklensprinkle.com/blog

With the holidays being such a busy time, I wanted to make something that was fast, easy, yet very festive and elegant. "Merry Christmas" (Stamp Set 386--Christmas Words  and Stamp Set 396--Garden Fairies) features some terrific SparkleNSprinkle Glitters in rich Christmas colors. Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Plate provides a great background or add a favorite family or pet photo. Directions and supplies can be found at http://sparklensprinkle.com/tipsandtechniques.php

 

Maybe I am one of “The Five” with a secondary prize, so don't forget to leave a comment to become eligible for the Grand Prize and one of the 5 secondary prizes, ( I'd love to hear about your favorite holiday memory), then hop on over to Donna's Creativesmiles blog for another creative masterpiece. Thanks for hopping by!

Patti, highlighting the "fairy border" with those deep Christmasy colors is a wonderful idea - just like the fairies in The Nutcracker Ballet! Your cards always remind us to use what is already in our stash -- in new ways! This is a BEAUTIFUL card! Thank you so much.
