Dec Blog Hop Inspiration

You may be just starting the blog hop or have come from Heather’s Blog.


I started by using this fun digi tree from one of our sponsors - Digistamps4Joy.  I focused on the gorgeous silver and gold in the inspiration photo.  So using my colored pencils, I made a gold and silver tree with a touch of red and yellow. HOC Dec 1 (485x640)

I fussy cut the image and then popped it up on silver paper and added the sentiment.  Then, because I couldn't resist, I chose gold as my card base.  All sorts of shimmery paper! HOC Dec 2 (640x499)

Thanks for stopping in!  Your next stop is Karen’s Blog
