It’s Time For A Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hello everyone! And a very happy Friday to you all!

Only two more Fridays to go and it’s Christmas!!

(I know right.. Has it crept up on you too this year? Tee hee.)

Today is the start of the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and I am very proud to be a part of this for My Whimsical Little World. Smiles.

This sweet little snowman is called Warm Wishes and you can find him in the MWLW Etsy Store.

To bring him to life, I used my Copics in these shades:-

Scarf.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Hat & Coffee Cup.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Snowman.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Nose.

My card/ornament I created with this fabulous Bow Card Template available from Sandra’s Scrapshop. It’s the first time I have used it and I LOVE it!!

To get the sparkle on the snow,  I used my Frantage Shaved Ice.  And on the blue card around the snowman, I used my Frantage Shabby Blue Embossing Powder.

This is truly so glittery in real life.

Here is a picture of it on my Fireplace.. It makes a great ornament. Smiles.

The large blue and white snowflakes at the top, I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.

That Craft Place New Releases..

… And Blog Hop!

Hello everyone! And a very happy Saturday to you all.  Today is a really good day for me. Not only are we having a fabulous blog hop for our brand new Christmas Release over at That Craft Place, but we (in our house) are putting up our Christmas Tree today! Oh yes!

So excited! Smiles.

Anyway, let’s get sharing some Christmas Cuteness with you all!

I wanted to create tags for my hop projects. I have always been really terrible at  making them, and they were turning into a huge fear of mine.

So – wanting to conquer my failings – I sat down and just went for it.  The more I have made, the better they have got. Smiles.

This first tag I made using Christmas Reindeer from the TCP Etsy Store.

To bring him to life I used my Copics in these shades:-

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Boots.

Nose.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Reindeer.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Scarf and Mitts.

My lovely red Gem Stems & Pins are from That Craft Place store.

As is my fabulous Christmas Ribbon and Hessian.

The sentiment is my own, computer generated one.

Tag number two I created using Christmas Penguin.

To bring him to life I used my Copics in these shades:-

My 3rd tag, I created out of Snowflake Acetate (available from That Craft Place too.)

I am SO VERY PLEASED with how this one turned out!
