Here's what I created for the hop today:

This set is called God's Purpose and includes two Scripture verses and three sentiments including the ever useful "Thinking of You".  I colored the image with copics and added a touch of stickles on the upper side of the red berries.  The doily is cut with Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry doily die which you can find at Sweet and Sassy Stamps!  The seam binding is from Stampin Up and the dp is from Kaisercraft and SU.  Other supplies include button, string, Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles, and Memento Tuxedo Black ink.


This card was created with the fun set Cozy Friends which includes this cute penguin and a sweet polar bear image!  It also has four holiday sentiments.  I have to tell you this one was so fun to color!  You could cut it out with your Spellbinders circles but I found it easy and quick to use scissors.  You can find twine from The Twinery at Sweet and Sassy stamps.   Other supplies include dp from Echo Park and My Minds Eye, buttons, Dizzy Doily Die-namic from My Favorite Things, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and copics.

Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy the hop, and your next stop is the very talented
