Spotlight + Guest Designer + giveaway

Hello!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

I decided to do this spotlight blog hop a little differently mostly to save time. My wonderful DT is scattered all over this world which means I would have to wait longer than I want to do to this mini blog hop.

So the sets we're spotlighting is 


For my first card I combined Mr. and Mrs. Claus and Warm Wishes. I coloured and cut out the images with my Graph'it markers.

When designing this set I wanted Santa to show the peace sign...I always remind my kids that Christmas is not all about presents from Santa but about Jesus - hope, love and PEACE.



I added some glossy accents to the snowman's nose, Santa's mug and his glasses. I heat embossed the sentiment onto vellum using white embossing powder.





For my second card I used my Hello Friend stamp set. This set was inspired by my kids. I know I'm not the only mama who loves to watch their children sleep and every time I think to myself...you will never know how much I love you. The love for my children fills my heart, overflowing with love and joy. 



I stamped the sleeping fox and poked holes along the lines and hand stitched using black thread. It's so simple but adds that little something something to the card.







My special guest designer is the talented Francine so hop on over to her blog. I'm giving away all three sets to one winner so make sure to leave comments. I will announce the winner tomorrow.

Take care!
