Sweet Pea Stamps - Christmas is just around the corner!!


  Welcome to the Sweet Pea Stamps Christmas is Just Around the Corner Blog Hop! Today our wonderful design team members are featuring a plethora of gorgeous Christmas themed images in both, rubber and digi format, to inspire your Christmas crafting.

  Please visit each of our talented team members' blogs and leave a little love - a comment on every hop post will enter you into a drawing for a $20 gift code to the Sweet Pea Stamps store! As an added bit of fun share the hop on Facebook tagging Sweet Pea Stamps for a chance for a $10 gift code to the Sweet Pea Stamps store! Winners will be chosen around the first of next week.
  I also have a bit of a treat for you too - I have a bit of blog candy to give away of my own. I have for one lucky commenter - 2 older Sweet Pea Rubber stamps (I loved them so much I ended up buying them twice :) - a memento ink pad - desert sand, and a large 5 by 7 die cut that I also accidently bought 2 of :) I will count all comments until the 5th of December and then randomly chose a winner (I would go sooner but my kids are home from college over Thanksgiving - and then I work  a couple days right after they leave :) A picture is down below at the end :)

  For my card to day I used an image from artist Heather Valentin called 'Rory's hot cocoa' and it is available both as a digi and a rubber stamp.
I colored her with prismacolor pencils and then cut her out with a Spellbinders die. I edged the main image with a gold metallic pen and then added green dots to the polka dots and the ginderbread mens buttons with a tulip fabric paint pen. Lastly I added some stickles glitter to the ground and for snowflakes in the air too. I layered the main image to some Christmas paper an added some gold corner stickers and a paper bow with some Christmas trim wrapped around it - yippee another Christmas card done!!!!
  Ok be sure to stop by everyone else's blog too for a ton of great inspiration and a chance to win some Sweet Pea 's of your own
