TGF Hoppin' Into the Holidays




Oh let me tell you how very excited I am to be part of this amazing blog hop! I love...no LOVE The Greeting Farm and all the wonderful designs that Marie has for us. She and Jess are so personable and giving. To be part of this hop is a dream for me...don't pinch me...I don't want to wake up if it is just a dream...LOL!

If you didn't start at the beginning of the hop and are just popping in for a visit, please click HERE and follow through to the end. There could be a prize in there somewhere for you. Thats right! Jess and Marie were feeling generous with this one and are giving away...are you ready?

The ENTIRE DECEMBER RELEASE!!!! What an INCREDIBLE PRIZE!

Now, I'd like to take a moment to share my little project with you. Snow is one of those natural wonders that makes me feel like a child each time I see it. Especially the first snow of the season. It evokes a certain joy that few other things can deep within me. I've been known to bundle up and walk for the pure joy of walking in a white wintery storm, prance around with my tongue sticking out as I try to get a flake as it descends upon me, decorate my home in blues and silvers with lots of glittery snowflakes hanging from doorways and windows, instigate a snow ball fight or two...I LOVE the SNOW!

Mix my adoration for The Greeting Farm and snow together and you get this little project that I created specifically for this occassion. I sincerely hope you enjoy it. Please finish the entire "Hoppin' Into the Holidays" Blog Hop because there are so many phenomenal projects just waiting for you to discover them.



No, the rhinestone flourishes didn't come that way. I put them on one at a time...I kick myself because there are about twenty hiding behind Miss Anya...guess I should have planned that one better...LOL!



The word "snow" is actually a cheepie from WalMart. It is a table decoration. You can pick up a pack for like a dollar! I just colored mine over in a Holiday Blue Copic and then added more sparkle with some Stickles.


With a little added light you can almost see the frost...hehehe...


Recipe: Miss Anya - Rain Snow Shine; DCWV Winter Combo Matstack; Copic Markers; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Broken China; Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black; Rangers Stickles - Icicle; misc. rhinestones in clear and green; snowflake punch; 3-D Square Adhesives
