My sponsor for today is..


Here are my projects that I've created....


I really enjoy making banners, so I decided to make a new Christmas one.  I used my Cricut and Birthday Bash to cut out the banners.  The cute little angels are from Too Cute by Jessica  and I LOVE them!


I stamped their faces with Peachy Keen's Princess Faces - they are my go to girl faces - I chalked on them and doodled around with my Sakura Jelly Roll pens.  I embossed the background with my Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder.


On to project number 2!  


This cute little card uses an SVG file from Kadoodle Bug Designs called Frozy Nose.  Isn't he cute??  The snowflakes are from Too Cute by Jessica and are a freebie.  I used my Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder to emboss the background.  My cutie sentiment is from CardzTV Stamps Snow Days.  I did some inking with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks.


Next up is the talented Migdalia!  Here is the lineup for today, just in case you get lost.  Don't forget you need to comment and follow on each stop for both days to have a chance to win some fabulous prizes! 


Here is the lineup from yesterday just in case you missed it:
