Visions of Sugar plums blog hop
















      

                     Happy Sunday!  Hope you are all snuggled up warm and toasty.  Sit back and grab some hot cocoa because we have some fantastic inspiration to share.  Today is the first day of the Visions of Sugar Plums blog hop!  I am so excited to be apart of this fun event this year.  We have a great line up of artists and prizes, so make sure to hop along to all their blogs!  You must comment on the blogs for a chance to win.  Your name will be entered for each time you comment.  We would also be thrilled to have you enter our challenge....the theme is Christmas/Winter.  The project can be a card or anything your little heart desires as long as it fits the theme.  Just make sure to link it up on Lori's blog.  Did I mention there will a randomly selected winner, who will receive a 25.00 Lawn Fawn gift certificate!  Yep! How cool is that? Below is a list of all the prizes and sponsors. 
                      Now for my little project I knew I had to kick start off with one of Pretty Little things  free images.  I fell in love with this little angel.  Isn't she sweet?  I tried to keep it simple, but you know how I am.  I did only use one pattern paper from RR.  To add interest I used a stamp from PTI and randomly stamped it on the top portion of my card. I fussy cut my image and layered it with a vintage snowflake from my stash and added some little gold stars.  Other than that a bit of seam binding from RRR and some buttons and pearls and I was done.  Hope you enjoy!  Below is a list of the blogs...so make sure to hop along and comment!

Oh how very sweet - I just have to pop over and get this image. Such a sweet and really joyful card. Your card does give one hope. The angel reminds me of Hummel (SP) figurines. I do love the colors and the faces - always so sweet!
