Oh Christmas Tree & Blog Hop Winner

Happy Friday everyone! I don't know about all of you, but December is just flying by way too quick! I know many of you would like to know who won my prize for the Frosted Designs blog hop.... well, I will tell you just as soon as I share this LO and our new challenge at Frosted Designs!

 This week we would like to see you use ribbon! Easy! You can make a card, layout or project, it just has to have ribbon on it somewhere!

I do have a funny story about this LO.... we have a new sponsor over at Frosted Designs... The Cutting Cafe! I don't know if you have ever worked with their digis, but they are amazing!! You get several digis in a set including patterned papers in some. Well... the one I was working with had the cutest papers included and I got so busy playing with all the great stuff in the set... so busy that when I finished the LO and went back to look at it, I realized that I forgot to add the ribbon!! I am seriously having way too many blonde moments these days! (I am calling them blonde moments because I am still in denial that I am getting old!!) So... after realizing my mistake, I went back and added some ribbon! Here is the LO...

The plain cardstock is paper from my stash and all the patterned papers came from the digi set! Even that cute little Santa owl in the bottom corner is from the same set!! You need to head over to Frosted Designs and see what the design team did with the ribbon challenge, and most of them used the digis from the cutting cafe.... there are some great gift ideas to check out!!

Supplies used:
Pink and Blue cardstock - from my stash
Patterned papers and digi stamps - The Cutting Cafe
Flower - Making Memories
Font - Gypsy Font
Glitter - Stickles in various colors

And now.... what you have all waited so patiently for.... the winner of the blog hop prize!! After going through all the entries (there were 104 qualifying entries) the winner, picked by random, is......

Congrats Denise! Email me ( your address and I will get your prize in the mail!!

Thank you to everyone who was able to participate in our Blog Hop! We had a lot of fun with it and we hope all of you enjoyed it as well! Be sure to check out all the dt blogs that participated in the hop to see if you won. Prize winners will be announced all weekend!

Awesome! Such a cute page design and love the colors, photos and all the cool details!
Also...LOVE Lauren's project!
I got Jordyn some of her very own stamp pads and gave them to her early so she is so super excited! We are lucky to have our own lil' crafters!

My craft day was a little bit of a mess because only 2 people ended up showing up after almost 10 people cancelling just days before! yikes!

Wish you could have come! Can you stand the idea! hehe! woohoo!
