Make sure you check each blog's requirements as some DT might require additional info.

I got the chance to play with one of Pattie’s fabulous Christmas/Winter images. It’s the most adorable little penguin with his igloo and Pattie nicely put him into a snowglobe for me. You can get the penguin image here.

The cardstock is by Recollections and I used some white with purple glitter paper from Best Creations Inc. that I had in my stash. The purple metallic paper is some that I had left over from another project. I punched the snowflakes with my Marvy Snowflake punch and the top of the metallic paper with my Fiskars punch. The ribbon is from Holiday Time and I got it at Michaels. I stamped the snowflakes onto the blue cs with my versa mark and then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. The image is colored with my Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and oms. I heat embossed snow on the ground in the snowglobe with my Christmas Tinsel embossing powder. And I used stickles on my snowflakes in the globe. I made a gatefold card and the image is used to keep the card closed. I lifted the idea for the gatefold card from Kym over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge blog. 

This is my card opened up. The sentiment on the front is from Pattie's Creations and the sentiment on the inside is from Crafty Cat 957 Designs.

The Hop will end at 1 P.M. (Central Standard Time) on Sunday, December 18th, and the winners will be announced on Tuesday, December 20th sometime in the afternoon.  Our DT will have their own winners posted on their blogs!

Hope you enjoyed your stop here…your next stop is Jamie. Don’t forget to leave us some comments to get your chance at some of the incredible prizes that are being offered.
