A BLOG HOP, A card, & An award



I have gots alot to tell ya'll about today so listen up and listen up good!!!

Firstly:

Prairie Fairy is having a BLOG HOP!
When you ask?
The fun starts this Friday, August 27th at 10:00 am
You don't want to miss this event. The Fairy has been a little quiet for a while but is back & breaking loose with some MAJOR NEWS, MAJOR blog candy, prizes, & a new MAJOR digital release that will blow you away!
The DT have also been busily creating some extra special projects for your viewing pleasures.
The fun doesn't end there because all the DT members are having their own candy giveaways at their blogs too- My candy will be the one at the beginning of my blog here (with extras to be added if I get over 200 followers)!
You heard right! There is just too much candy to miss here!
The fun all starts at the Prairie Fairy Blog on Friday Aug. 27th at 10:00am when the FFF challenge goes live ... soooooo,
COME JOIN THE FUN!


Secondly:

I have a card to share.
Yup, a Christmas one! Deck the halls, eh?!!? (yup, I'm Canadian)
First pic is of one of my newest aquisitions..........Christmas flower soft complete with stems & a bouquet!
I added some Christmassy feel ribbon to spice things up a notch.
This was my first time using this stuff & definitely WILL NOT be my last. I love it so much!


Oh & yup there's Tilda........IN RED!
I used another one of my new stash......COPICS....to color her face. The rest of her is colored with watercolor pencils, blending stumps and baby oil.
I added liquid applique to her hat & dried it with a heat gun to give it the puffy feel.


This is the underside of my card. Matched the paper on the upper side (see last pic).
I added a sticker snowman to give it the winter wonderlandy (is that even a word) feel!! lol


Here 's she is.
Yup, an easle.
It's been a while since I made one, so thought it was about time!


Challenges for my card :
OSSAT- say it with shapes
The Stamp Man- Easle card
The Crazy Challenge- Merry Christmas
Sew Many Challenges- Christmas in August
Creative Cottage- Christmas
Bah-Humbug- winter wonderland
Winter Wonderland- walkin' in a winter wonderland

Daring Cardmakers- material girl (inspired by Santas outfit)
