A Christmasy Blog Hop


It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...ok not really here, but this Blog Hop may put you more in the Christmas mood! I will say working on some Christmas related cards has made me start thinking about my Christmas cards a whole lot sooner than I normally do...which is totally needed since I usually am scrambling to finish them around mid-December!

So hopefully the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Hop is getting you Christmas mojo going...you should be arriving from Tina's Blog (love that new Moody for Presents!). If you didn't start at the beginning, then make sure you jump back to the PMS Blog to collect all of your letters for your 15% Off code! I am totally lovin' all of the Word Arts this time and I have to say that this Dr. Seuss one is my favorite! How classic is that line...totally love reading that book and seeing the movie every year! Since it was a Dr. Seuss quote, I tried to go for a whimsical look, which turned out to be a little basic, but I think it worked.

Anyway I started with the current Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #163. The quote was inked up with markers and stamped on the back side of the Joyful Multi Stripe pattern paper by KI Memories...it was a nice shimmery white and since the presents were cut from the same piece of pattern paper it matched nicely. Then it was cut with part of the Labels 16 Nestabilities die. As I said before the presents were cut out of the Joyful Multi Stripe pattern paper and then popped up with some dimensionals. The large Kiwi Kiss panel was embossed with the Spots and Dots embossing folder. The final touch was some 7/8" red satin ribbon and three red rhinestones.

Now it is time to hop on over to Danni's Blog to see what she created with an adorable Christmas tree! Oh and here is my letter before you leave me:
Have fun hopping along and getting some Christmas inspiration. Don't forget the Release Party is tonight at 9 pm in the PMS Forum. Be ready for lots of chatter and some fun...plus you will get to find out if you won any stamps! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering.
