Paper Pretties Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the next stop on this fabulous Paper Pretties Blog Hop!! If you are arriving from Frances’ blog, then you are right on track!! If you happened to start in the middle, feel free to turn around and head over to the Paper Pretties Blog. You won’t want to miss a thing; all the new stamps and cards are absolutely beautiful!!

I was nervous, excited and honored that Heather asked me to be part of today’s blog hop. Heather is a wonderful person and if you haven’t had the pleasure, let me introduce you…Heather is the new owner of
Paper Pretties which is located in Madison, WI. Heather offers amazing customer service with her lightening speed shipping and cheaper shipping rates. She has a Paper Pretties facebook page which is a great way of keeping up with all the challenges, releases and Paper Pretties projects. She also has the Paper Pretties store where you can look at all the fabulous new releases and get a few of those extra crafting items that you just need (i.e. Basic Grey, Kaisercraft paper and more).

For my projects today, I used
Sledding Cooper. Sledding Cooper is illustrated by the talented Joni Stringfield and this little angel was such a pleasure to play with. He comes with 4 fun sentiments, two of which are shown in this post.

For my card I used, Paper Pretties Sledding Cooper, SU cardstock, Creative imaginations DP, Copics, Martha Stewart punch and snowflakes, Glitter, ribbon, flourishes and a snowflake embossing folder.

For my next project I made an ornament using Sledding Cooper and another one of the great sentiments from the set "Let it snow".

This little guy was black embossed onto acetate and colored on the back using permanent markers. Although difficult to see, I touched the snow around him with dazzling diamonds and added glitter to the bottom of the ornament. I used ribbon, glue dots, flowers and MS snowflake.

Thank you so much for coming by and joining us today!! The incredibly talented JACKIE is your NEXT STOP on this HOP!!!

Enjoy
