Christmas Blog Hop

Hi. I'm so excited to be participating in my very first blog hop! This is the last stop on the hop and you probably arrived here from http://fantabulouslypink.blogspot.com/. If you just happened to stop by and would like to start at the beginning, I've listed the other blogs at the end of this post. This is a two day hop and I have some blog candy to give away on each day. To be eligible to win all you have to do is leave a comment on the posts. I'll draw the winners on Tuesday, December 7th. Oh, and please leave a way for me to get a hold of you. Today's give away is the Cricut Christmas Cards Winter Collection cartridge. Ok, so now on to today's project. Since I'm giving away a copy of the Christmas Cards cart, I thought I would use mine in my projects. Here's the first card. I didn't use the cut sentiment, but instead opted for a stamp.
Card and layers cut at 4.5"; Stamped sentiment, Flourishes; Embossing powder, Clear tops Black Gems; Glitter, Martha Stewart Crystal Fine; Snow writer; Glossy accents;
Paper,DejaViews Fair Isle Christmas, Stampin Up Riding Hood Red

Ok, so I intended to use the Christmas Cards cart exclusively, but then I got a copy of Jolly Holidays and had to use it. The images are so cute! On this one I cut her face in white then colored with Copic marker E000. I used R23 on her cheeks. I've had those little buttons forever and added some baker's twine to them before placing them on her dress.
Girl 2 image cut at 3.25" Paper, Kaiser Craft Wishlist; Glitter button, Recollections; Stamp Sentiment, Recollections; Ink, Stampin Up Riding Hood Red; Nestability Beaded Circle die

Thanks so much for hopping with us today. Don't forget to leave a comment today for a chance at winning the cartridge. Please stop back tomorrow, I actually made something besides cards! I will also have some fun blog candy again.
Happy Holidays,
Maria
