SNB Blog Hop!

(sticky post)
Hi there, and HAPPY CHRISTMAS! In August? At SNB, we're making a start on our creations for Christmas! Welcome to the StretchNBubbles Christmas Block Blog Hop....we're hopping from August 29 through to September 1st!

If you came here from Lynn's blog you're in the right place. If you stumbled upon this hop by accident, go to the SNB blog and start there. Alison is in the Christmas Spirit and has created a whole new line of fun Christmas Block images. Be sure to visit each blog in the hop to see the whole set. I have used the Present Christmas Block image.

Ingredients used for my card: Cardstock, pearls, rhinestone - Kaisercraft; Markers - Bic; Stardust Glitter Pen, Glaze Pen - Sakura; Metallic Threads (Red, Gold Green) - Madeira.

I have created the card using layers of patterned and plain cardstock, with a BIG printed image of the Present. The image is coloured with Green Glitter pen, and the red ribbon is Glaze pen (as are the surrounding dots). I added a rhinestone at the bow, and three stitches of metallic threads (the positioning was guided but following the image detail). To finish off, I added some lovely large pearls....
We are randomly gifting a visitor to our blog (who leaves a comment) with the image we have used in our creation. Be sure to leave a comment at EVERY blog in the hop to be eligible for some great prizes! You might wine one, you might win several.... and separate to this draw, one lucky winner will win the whole set!

Be sure to leave a comment here on this post, and each one in the hop. I'll choose a winner from all the comments on Wednesday, September 1st (USA time) and that person will win the image I used in my card. So remember to check back here (September 1, USA time) to see if you've won!

Your next stop is Gunvor's blog. We hope you enjoy all this Christmas cuteness. Be sure to stop by the SNB Shop to see more of what Alison has to offer.
