Winter $50 prize blog hop



Note added for those here for the Blog Hop: I just realised that it will probably be later in the day before you can follow the hop properly as I am a few hours ahead of my fellow DT's who are all USA based so hope you will find time later to join in.

Morning to you all, hope your weekend was a good one.

Monday always means time to share my weeks DT work for Prickly Pear and this week to celebrate the release of the Winter 2 stamps we are having a blog hop. There will be a fab prize up for grabs of $50 worth of PPRS products which will be selected from all the comments left on the DT's blogs and in additional I have a little extra prize that will go to a randomly selected person from the comments on my blog.................


Those following the hop should have arrived here from Angela's blog and pop along next to Heidi, should you get lost you will find the full list here.

So as I said it's the Winter 2 release and the top card used the gorgeous sleigh image which I have stamped with brown archival ink and coloured with Pan Pastels and added a generous helping of snow glitter. And the sentiment is from the same release.

For my other card I used the distress Jingle Bells stamp and the poinsettia stamps and matching dies, like the leaves I shared a couple of weeks ago these are such clever little sets. The holly and swirls are Cheery Lynn and I embossed the background panel with the holly A4 folder which really had worked overtime in my craft room this year.


Hope you have a good Monday.

  35. Hi, Brenda! Your jingle bells card and the historic/vintage card are so pretty! I especially like all the details in the vintage image, right down to the hay and Christmas tree in the back - it really tells a story all on its own, doesn't it? wonderful cards, as always. I always like that you have two distinct styles on your blog posts - so industrious and talented! hugs, de
