Dream Team Blog Hop–None Traditional Christmas Colours


It’s that time again and this Months theme for the Blog Hop is None Traditional Christmas Colours and Kerttu is the host and that is where the blog hop begins.

You should have landed on my blog from Pops so if not head back over there first. We will hold this every third Thursday of the month , we aim to give you a little inspiration and hopefully a few Oooo's and Awes along the way.The Dream Team is made up with some of the most talented ladies so be sure to give them all a visit and leave us all a comment as there is a couple of spot prizes up for grabs.

So for my project I decided on a sepia theme.

The image is Snowman and he can be purchased here From Mo’s Digital Pencil 


Now I may have got carried away and slipped in some gold but only because Christmas is all about Sparkle so please forgive me (wink) The gorgeous Ribbon is from Ribbon Carousel and it’s tied with my Double bow tutorial The backing papers where purchased from my local craft shop I got a whole multi pack of gold laced papers and they just fell in my basket.

Image was coloured with FlexMarkers


Next up is Lori and i know she has been working on a dreamy project for you all.

Remember to leave some love in way of a comment on each blog for the chance of a spot prize.

I have a couple of bow makers and had watched innumerable tutorials and I still couldn't tie a bow I was happy with until I saw your tutorial. Even though I tie them so tight that I can hardly get them off my fingers, I am enchanted with the result! Can't stop admiring them. Thanks so much.
