Good Morning to you all !!

Today we are having a blog hop for the new release. Please join in the fun. You have until 11:00 EST to enter for the blog candy. Each DT member is showcasing a new PROJECT.

I am so excited about the new release "Victoria Case SCACD - "Winter Wonderland". These stamps are so much fun and just so darn cute. Sorry about the pictures, I had to take them with my phone because I dropped my camera and, of course, I wait until the last minute to take the pics and post. Anyway, isn't SKATER just too cute? Her face is so full of joy and happiness.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations Challenge - Christmas in October
Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Get Punchy
Creative Card Crew Challenge - Scallops
Everybody Art Challenge - Shapes or punches
Paperplay Challenge - Favorite Embellishment
Stamp Something Challenge - Bling It

I cut the box out with double sided cardstock. The swirls on the paper are embossed with glitter. I couldn't pick it up it very well in the picture to show you. I ran some pretty pink shiny ribbon through the top and made a matching bow. SKATER is heat embossed and colored with Copics with a little stickles on her hat, jacket and pom poms on her shoes. The pockets on her jacket are glossed with Crystal Effects. Check out the bow. I have always had trouble making pretty bows, UNTIL I got the Bow Easy. If you haven't checked it yet, you should. It makes life so much easier and less frustrating.

Here is a side view. I used the MS punches for the Snowflakes and the border.

Now on the hopping. If you came here first, then you need to go back to the beginning to Susan's blog . Now you need to go to Carolyn's.

DON"T FORGET you have until 11:00 EST tonight to enter for the blog candy.

All of the DT is showcasing a different stamp and different project. They are totally awesome. Stop by and see them all. The stamps Victoria Case for SCACD - Winter Wonderland will be available tomorrow for purchase. Mark you calendars, you don't want to miss out on these.

As always, I appreciate you taking the time to stop by.
