Stamps of Life and the Twinery Blog Hop



Hello and Welcome -
Are you ready for some fun?
The {Stamps} of Life and The Twinery Design Teams are playing together for this hop!
 If you came here from Beverley Sizemore's blog you are right on track.

I was priveleged to be able to design with a fun Christmas set of stamps called Christmas2Build from Stamps of Life. The details in these stamps are just beautiful and i loved the font that the sentiments came in as well.
I have been wanting to scrap our tradition of placing boots at the door, forever..well not just any old boots of course :-) they have to be red and glittery!! subsequently when i saw the "boots" included in this stamp set it was the perfect opportunity to do that. i was equally delighted to find that the teeny tiny snowman also fitted right inside the cuff of the boot making a great little decoration. The Merry Christmas stamp filled the gap across the top of my page like a glove or should i say like a mitten LOL! Last but not least i stamped a little border of snowflakes along the bottom for my title to rest on. I left the cappuccino twine simply  flowing across the stamps to give the illusion of a banner. i think it makes the sweetest addition, dont you?

Loved the snowflakes so much I couldnt resist just stamping a couple of extra little ones on these tags.
I picked up the ribbon at a local craft fair and thought its cuteness factor was right up there with these little stamps so put the two together! They rock, right? LOL. Not to mention the sentiments.. Little Red Riding Hood saying - Merry Christmas from our "woods" to yours. The knights in shining amour saying - Merry Christmas from our "castle" to yours and the pirates saying - Merry Christmas from our "ship" to yours :-) and of course the finshing touch is the Twinery twine in coordinating stone, maraschino and cappuccino.


As you make your way through the hop make sure you comment on each and every post. There will be 2 prize winners chosen randomly among the blogs:
One winner will win 2 stamp sets  (winners choice) valued at $12.95 -total retail value: $26.90 per prize! from The {Stamps} of Life.
&
One winner will win the Ultimate Color Sampler Pack ($25 value!) from The Twinery!!!

The prize winners will be announced on The {Stamps}of Life and The Twinery Blogs on Wednesday November 16th.



Thanks so much for coming by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop - your next stop is Tami Mayberry!
