Sweet Pea Stamps Christmas Blog Hop

Hi everyone, are you doing fine? I hope so. Christmas is coming nearer and nearer. Are you prepared? All cards done? If not we have lots of inspirations for you today. 

We have a Blog Hop for you today. And the theme of it is to make a Christmas card or a creation and not using a special christmassy image. How great is this? It is so much fun really. When you come from Holley's Blog you are on the right way.

For my card I used this gorgeous image by the fabulous artist ching-chou kuik, one of my favourite images. It is called 'One and Only Heart'. I coloured the image with Distress Inks. The papers I used are from the '25 days of Christmas' by Simple Stories. I haven't add that many embellies as I usually do as I thought it would be too much here. Just added two baubles stickers and some lace. 


Here a close up of the image


So what do you think? Hope you like it this way as much as I do. If you want to see more gorgeous creations and inspirations hop over to Katarina's Blog

Leave a comment on all participants to get the chance to win a gift certificat of USD 20.00 at Sweet Pea Stamps. Isn't this just great? What a fabulous early Christmas present this would be. 

Thank you so much for your visit and joining us on our Blog Hop. 
Have a magical day, and come back soon as I have another Christmas card with a non christmassy image to show you soon.

Hugs, Karina
