SNSS Christmas Cheer Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog! I'm so happy you could join me today for the Sweet -n Sassy Stamps Christmas Cheer Blog Hop. If you found your way here from Korin's Blog, they you are on the right track. The holidays are just right around the corner, so there's no time like the present to start thinking about holiday cards. What better way to find oodles of inspiration that a blog hop? We have been celebrating since Wednesday, so if you haven't had a chance to catch all the fabulous creations from Wednesday and Thursday, be sure to check the link in my sidebar to catch up on all the amazing work from my fellow design team members.

My card today is made with the Christmas Cheer set from Sweet -n Sassy Stamps. I love this little doggie in the stocking. I colored her up to look like my little fur baby, Lola. Miss Lola has the same sweet and innocent face! As always, I used my SU inks and an aquapainter for coloring. The DP is from Stampin' Up!. I added some sparkle to the stocking by painting on some red stickles, and the white fur trim is done with a snow writer and chunky glitter. The scroll was cut with my Cricut. After adding some rhinestones, because there just wasn't enough sparkle with the glitter and stickles, I decided that instead of a sentiment, I would use this pretty little "Believe" charm which was a gift from my dear, sweet, and talented friend, Judy. For the finishing touch, I added the polka dots to compliment the ribbon with a white gel pen. I also added white accents to the scroll and circle.

Your final stop on today's blog hop will be at the Sweet -n Sassy Stamps Blog. I consider myself very blessed that you could stop by today! I wish you a wonderful weekend filled with everything that you love! May our gracious Lord bless and keep you today and always!
Love Ya!
