Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Joyful Stars Blog Hop!
This is my first time hopping with these ladies and I hope you enjoy the hop and feel inspired by the ideas you'll see along the way.

If you've come from Donna Digby's blog you're on the right track. Just keep clicking the links in each post to continue along on the hop. At the end of my post you'll also find a list of all the participating consultants.

So I've been working on getting my Christmas cards ready to mail and discovered I needed a few more. I made this quick and easy cards this afternoon. I used the Oh Deer paper pack for one and the City Sidewalks paper pack for the other two. Using the Picture My Life cards from the packs and a few things I had made extras of I was able to put these together in no time!

CARD 1: It's kind of hard to see but the flower petals are covered in our Shimmer Brush.

CARD 2: A simple snowflake background highlighted with gold glitter accents and embossing.

CARD 3: Shimmer Brush on the "snow" and here and there on the snowflakes. That's it!
