Sweet Pea Stamps - Christmas with a non-Christmas image - hop

 Hallo,
Welcome to the Sweet Pea Stamps blog hop. Each of our wonderful designers have come up with creative ways to use a non-Christmas themed image to create a Christmas themed project! We hope to inspire you to work out of the box for each and every holiday with images you might not consider when 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.
   Christmas card making is in full swing in my craft room - had a few more done up early than I did last year but still have a few to go :)
  The Sweet Pea Stamps Design Team crew decided to have one more blog hop this year and hopefully this will inspire some ideas for Christmas cards for you too!!!
  We decided to challenge ourselves by using a non-Christmas image to make a Christmas card or project.
  I used 'Pearl' by Julia Burgess of Sweet Pea Stamps and colored her with prismacolor pencils.
I thought the bubbles looked like Christmas ornaments and colored them red and green - got a bit too much glitter on them I guess as they don't show as bright of red and green as I thought they would - but then again  - Can you really have too much glitter? :)
  All for me today - Take Care
    Tera

P.S.  I drew the winner of my blog candy from our last Sweet Pea Stamps DT blog hop a couple days ago and have not heard back from her yet - I left a note on her blog. So I am looking for  Erika Horvathova - please email me or leave me a comment with your email in it and I will get your goodies on the way :)
