My Little Shoebox Winter Card Blog Hop!!

Hi guys, welcome to my stop on the hop. Let me start off by saying that I LOVE this winter line. I just love the gorgeous colors, the beautiful snowflakes, and the super cute houses. My favorite, though, are the little girl ice skating and the little boy sledding - I feel like this pp was designed for me (LOL!) - the girl looks just like my DD (and she even took ice skating lessons a couple years ago), and the boy looks like my DS! Thanks Helen :)

Ok, so I made a little holiday card that's very neutral and perfect either for Christmas or New Year's. I used the Unity/MLS stamp set for the sentiment. The snowman is from the sticker set, and I first adhered it to black cardstock, and then cut out. Thanks for visiting!!


I also made a Christmas Ornament using a little bit of the gorgeous paper and a sticker tree from the collection. The chipboard "ornament" and reindeer are by Scrapmatts.




OK, this is a blog hop, so some prizes are in order, right?? There will be two Winter Wonderland collections given away to a random commenter on one of the participating blogs. Prize winners will be announced on the My Little Shoebox blog on Tuesday, November 22.

Also, just for my blog followers (and if you're not a followers yet, just click to follow!), I am giving away a Cricut limited edition Holiday Cartridge and throwing in the mini alphas from this collection - they're the "Peppermint" color. All you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment. The Cricut cartridge was given to me by Carrie, the owner of Paper Lovelies Kit club - she has the most amazing kits every single month for only....$15! If you guys haven't checked it out yet, you really should! I will announce the winner of my blog giveaway on Thursday morning :) Here's a look at my giveaway:



Thanks for joining us today for our Winter Wonderland inspirational card hop. Now hop on over to the sweet and talented Erin.
