Tis the Season Blog Hop!!!

Hi Welcome to my Blog!!  I apologize for the delay in getting this post up!!  If you scroll down you will see a list of all the wonderfully talented women who are sharing their blogs with you today!!  I must admit that I am very nervous about this - this is my first time!!

I thought it appropriate that I share with you the weather outside my window at this moment!!  Tis is the Season for a lot of Minnesota tis is the Season for snow.........

The following project was a lot of fun to do.......I wanted to make a NOEL sign to put on my entertainment center for the holidays.  This is what I came up with.......

I started with wooden letters that I painted with acrylic paints.  I traced the letters onto papers from the DCWV from the Christmas Ultimate scrapbook kit stack from a couple of years ago!  There are so many papers in this stack!!!!  I cut out each letter and then applied it to the painted letter using modpodge glue.  I sanded around the edges and inked the edges with the acrylic paints.  Using a glue gun I adhered the little holly berries and the gold holly leaves.  Here are the close ups of each letter.......

The next project is my Christmas card ----- okay one of my Christmas card designs.  I do need to do about three more dozen but time has eluded me so far.

The card was designed on my Gypsy - I absolutely paper crafting with "Rose".  With Rose I am able to design my card and mass produce it!!  With this design I made 24 cards.  The cartridge I used for the snow man is Snow Friends - it is such an adorable card!!  The red paper is from Bazzill and the patterned paper is from the DCWV Christmas stack.  I hope you like it!!!!
