Thursday, July 19, 2012


Hi everyone!  Thanks for playing along in this new blog hop!  The Blog Hop with Sean & Regina is featuring cards and sentiments celebrating the Christmas/Winter season! Most of us are going through extreme heat right now and we are looking for some relief!  When I think of relief, I think of a crisp winter’s day (Florida style which means temps in the low 70’s instead of 90’s) watching the snow falling (wait, snow falling? Not down here!) and watching the neighborhood children outside playing and laughing.  I’m starting to cool just thinking about it (and looking forward to turning the A/C off for at least a day or two)!! 

Anyhoo, we have some amazing creations for you to see and what's even better is that there are goodies you can win!
Here are the items I used for this card:
Gina K Designs Cardstock and Design Paper: Hello Sunshine DP,
120# CS – white, Layering weight – white, and Lipstick Red CS; MAMBI DP
Gina K Designs Stamp Set: Wishing You Joy
Memento Inks: Tuxedo Black, Ladybug, Bahama Blue
Copic Markers: BG000, R20, R24, R27, YG67, YR23 and E99
Sakura Gellyroll: Copper, Silver and Clear
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Circles – Small, Labels 16
Zots, Pop Dots, Stamp-a-ma-Jig, Bow-Easy
GKD Calypso Blue Ribbon, Celebrate Holiday Ribbon
