Ho Ho!

Ho Ho Ho!! I'm hoping you've been very good!  Maybe you are hopping today with us at Visions of Sugarplums?   December 6-8 we're hopping with designs from 12 designers! Lucky me was asked to participate and I'm delighted!  This event is hosted by Lori Hairston of Choux Choux Paper Art.   Lori has 3 days of beautiful projects, blog hops and yes PRIZES!   If you are hopping along you should have reached me from Cherry Nelson's Blog.  To start at the beginning and get all the details just click here to jump to Lori Hairston's Blog.  

Here's some of the candy Lori has up for grabs!!

Canvas Pop has another great giveaway going on right now - you could WIN YOUR CHRISTMAS!  Enter by December 11th.  Enter the WIN YOUR CHRISTMAS giveaway HERE.

You enter to win prizes by commenting on all the blogs.  Your name is entered for the prizes for every comment you leave.   The more comments you write, the more chance you have to win!!

There is also a Challenge:  the theme is Christmas/Winter.  It can be a card or any project that fits the theme.  You can link to the challenge on Lori's blog.  The challenge will end December 20th.  The randomly selected winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to Lawn Fawn.
I'll be participating all three days with products from Pretty Little Studio.    When my neice was little she used to call Santa Ho Ho! and I guess the name sort of stuck and we still call him that.  This die cut image from Pretty Little Studio can be found in the store as "Santa #11" (I'm still going to call him Ho Ho).    The reason he is number eleven is because Pretty Little Studio just has so many different versions of Ho Ho that  I am guessing Melissa (the owner) ran out of names! There are lots of cute Santa die cuts in the store to chose from for just about any layout or card. You can see them all here! There is even a Santa in a space ship!!!
Pretty Little Studio has lots of pretty embellishments too.  I folded one of their 4" Cambridge Doilies and topped it with a flair from the Christmas Story Set. - Eye candy I tell you!!
The stamped sentiment is from Waltzingmouse's Jolly Old Elf Set.  I stamped it on a flag die cut, punched a bitty hole in it and ran a pin through it.  The pins are really inexpensive - in the sewing department of your local craft store.  
I also added lots of glitter to the snow on the outside of the chimney.  Don't you love that music print vellum too? 

Hey!  Before you go!!! Make sure you leave me a comment.  One person who leaves a comment on any of my Visions of Sugar Plums posts (today Dec 6-8)  will be selected to win a $15 gift certificate for Pretty Little Studio.    You have until December 11 to leave a comment.  I'll post the winner on December 13.

Do you love twine?  Its a beautiful compliment to any project.  I'm going to pick a second winner to receive a sampler of twine from The Twinery.  You can check them out here... the have twine in solids and stripes -  as well as metallic mixed blends.

Here's a complete list of all the designers with projects for you today!   I hope you'll stop by and say hi.  Remember if you are following along on the hop your next stop is the Hostess with the Mostest.. Lori Hairston!!

I love your Santa card with so many embellishments. And yes, you have given me another idea how to use vellum, the music notes are great, and I'm thinking just using my printer and word to print onto vellum with different images or words. Maybe a challenge today.

You rattle my brain!! I knew you'd be a perfect fit for Lori's hop and dagnabit, you nailed it just like I knew you would and with a score of 15 on a scale of 1 to 10!
My eyeballs nearly cross when I look at your cards because they are jumping all over the freakin' place to take it all in. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your style and because I'm lucky enough to have actually held your cards in person, I KNOW the level of detail and attention you put into your work and it is deserving of praise!
Big hugs to you and my husband will be having a word with you when he finds out I went on a shopping spree...LOL.
