Paper Sundaes Blog Hop & Blog Candy

Welcome to Paper Sundaes first ever Blog Hop!  I'm glad you joined in and are playing along.  If you arrived here from Carla's Blog then you are on the right track!  If not, please go back and start at the beginning which is Christine's Blog so you don't miss out on any of the beautiful cards from our amazing Sundae Girls Design Team (and for your chance to win some pretty yummy blog candy). Remember to check out and comment at all stops so you don't miss your chance to win any candy and finish at Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog for the big candy! 





To celebrate today's blog hop I created a Xmas card (yes....Xmas is over, I know..but I promised I would make some to send out next Xmas as I never got any sent out this year so I started REALLY early :)  My card was made using an Magnolia image "Tilda with Candy Cane" which I coloured with copics & my Spica glitter pens.  The paper I used was from Making Memories Fa La La Collection and the Joy chipboard letters are from Basic Grey.  The ribbon is canvas ribbon from my stash.  Hope you like it :)


The next stop on our blog hop is Danielle!  Be sure to check out her amazing card and watch out for eye candy along the way.  For your chance to win my blog candy you must be a follower of my blog and a follower of Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog and leave me a comment to let me know.  My blog candy includes stamp set called "Friendship" from Inkadinkadoo containing 10 clear stamps, a set of 4 Memento Dew drops (Rose Bud, Angel Pink, London Fog & Tuxedo Black as well as 2 sets of rhinestones (1 pink & 1 red).  







Be sure to join us on Sunday, January 17th at Paper Sundaes for our first challenge and the announcement of the blog candy winners!  


Be sure to check back here to see my challenge card & find out the winner of my blog candy :)  How do you top your Sundaes?
