Day 12 (Last One!) of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

I am soo very sad to see this blog hop end. Why you may ask? Cause a blog hop of this magnitude is certainly lots of work. Well here is my answer!! There are several reasons...

  1. Our fabulous hostess Lisa Tehonica Pontious over at Honey Bearz Designs has done an amazing job organizing all of this for us to enjoy. Kudos to you Lisa!!!
  2. There have been an amazing group of ladies in this hop. Their talent is phenomenal.
  3. It got me motivated to create! And, helped me step out of the box to try new techniques.
  4. I am not ready to be finished!! I have so much more I still need to do. Lots of my Christmas presents this year include tags or homemade little touches to go along with them and I have not finished. 
  5. I still have decorating to do!

So because of #4 and #5 above I will be extending this myself for the rest of the month. Maybe not daily but I will continue to post all of my wonderful creations through the rest of the month. 

For today's project I was browsing last night...either on Pinterest or the net and saw an adorable Christmas owl...well that inspired today's project. 

I used this cute Christmas owl from the Winter Wonderland cartridge and made him all in Christmas colors. I cut designed him on my Gypsy and cut him at 4.41". I typically do not like to use this color for my card base but felt like it went well with all the patterns. I then used a small sentiment to stamp "Merry Christmas" in Close to My Heart chocolate ink.

Instead of trying to cut the tiny little pieces for his legs, nose and the tip of his hat...I used Stickles.

I want to thank all the wonderful gals that have taken the time to follow me and comment on all of my projects over the last 12 days. Several of you had some questions and such along the postings, I will be answering those in a post later this week so if you were one of those come on back!  And now on to my surprise! I will be randomly choosing a day. Then, from that day randomly choosing a comment and sending out a surprise Christmas assortment of scrapbooking supplies. So, you see it is very beneficial to comment on each day!!

And if you made it to the end of this long winded post I will have some updates in a couple of the threads for you tomorrow as I finish up decorating 3 areas with items created for this blog hop so tune in tomorrow for the finale on Day 10 and 11 and 2 more little areas that I plan to decorate today.

  2. I think the Stickles you added as the feet, nose and pointy hat is a wonderful idea. Adds a nice texture and beautiful touch.
