CSS Design Team Blog Hop


Hi, I'm so excited to be able to join in this hop. Thank you, Gina and Jessica, I know it was a lot of work to put all this together. I look forward to hopping along with the rest of you.

I used Carolyn King's set " Warm Winter Wishes" from Gina K. Designs. I just love this set.
I masked off the heart. Then using a black memento marker filled in the lines and drew some arms. I drew the mittens and colored everything with copic's.
Supplies:
Card stock is Gina K All spruced up and white.
Deck the hall digi DP from Gina K
M.S> punch
Stickles
Ribbon is Gina k
Nestabilities
Now a word from our sponsor! Lol.
