First Ever Blog Hop at Createful Heart

     Welcome to our first ever Blog Hop - November, 2017!  We’re so glad you decided to join us.  We hope that you’ll not only join in on the Blog Hop, but the current Challenge #7.  We have an Overall Winner and Top 3 each challenge.  Our theme for Challenge #7 is "CHRISTMAS."
     Before I go on, there are some simple rules to follow to be eligible for the Blog Hop Door Prize (20% Coupon toward any digi purchase of $10 or more in Createful Heart’s Etsy Store):
1.  You MUST leave a comment on each Design Team member’s blog, including the Createful Heart Blog.

3.  Winner will be announced on the next Challenge #8 and also on our Facebook Page: Createful Heart Digis & Designs.
4.  The date of this Blog Hop will run throughout the duration of the current Challenge #7, November 30th through December 13th, 2017.  

    Now let me show you what I created for the Challenge #7 - Blog Hop!

     I used this adorable "Snow Family" image from Createful Heart, colored with my ProMarkers, and cut with an Unbranded die.  I cut the frame for it with another die from that same set, only one size larger.  That has to be my favorite die for making lace ovals or doilies.  The printed sentiment was also cut with a die from that set.

     Everything was mounted onto a colored card base.  I added narrow green ribbon and tied a double bow, then added the green, sparkly candy cane, and called it finished.  I wanted it to be as flat as possible for mailing.
