MLS Winter Wonderland Hop...

Monday, November 21, 2011

Welcome to my blog and the second last stop before you finish the My Little Shoebox Hop. I'm sure you will have gained some fabulous inspiration along the way and fallen in love with the new Winter Wonderland collection.

Now, you should have arrived from Shemaine Smith's wonderful blog, but if you haven't then you can find the start of the blog hop back at the My Little Shoebox blog.


I can never resist the colour pink so I decided to create an all pink Christmas card, which totally goes against the traditional colours, but hey... I'm never one to follow traditions and neither does the Winter Wonderland collection with its soft pallet of pink, aqua, teal, green cream and dusty red.


This adorable Christmas tree stamp is a co-product between My Little Shoebox and Unity Stamps and stamped perfectly onto the vellum to create an overlay for my card. I added a few pink pearls to the stamped image as decoration for my little Christmas tree, a big bow and to finish the card I added a rub-on sentiment to the base of the vellum strip.


Give-Away
To say thankyou for joining the Winter Wonderland blog hop, My Little Shoebox are giving away two Winter Wonderland colletions to a random commentor on one of the participating blogs.
All you have to do is leave a comment on each of the blogs you visit to be in the running.
Prize winners will be announced on the My Little Shoebox Blog on Monday, November 22.

Your final step on the blog hop journey is:
