The Stamping Boutique Blog Hop 9th to 11th December



Hi everyone and welcome to The Stamping Boutique Blog Hop which is being run for the entire weekend to give you plenty of time to hop!!! You will have lots of lovely inspiration from the team using the wonderful images from Tracey.

You should have arrived here from the totally inspirational Stacie if not you will need to go back to the start at Christy D's blog.
I hope you are all in the holiday spirit and are raring to go but if you need some more inspiration we thought we would have a "Thrifty Christmas-Making Handmade Gifts" blog hop.  The hop will run from December 9th-11th, since we have a large team, we want to allow you plenty of time to hop!!!

There will be a prize for a commentor on each of the Design Teams blogs and then the main prize will be a $25 voucher to use in the Stamping Boutique store.

I have used this gorgeous Christmas Reindeer image.....


on a candle...............


(If you click on the picture you should get a larger view)

I have coloured him with Sakura star dust pens and watercolour crayons. I was waiting for the printable tissue paper from Create and Craft to get this done which was rather late in arriving for my project.

EDITED AT 10.30AM GMT TO ADD MY PROJECT


(My project has been delayed due to unforseen circumstances - the post, and my job getting in the way of crafting - shock horror. I do hope to have it ready sometime today and will edit my post when it is sorted so apologies for not having anything now. )

You should now hop off to my amazingly talented team mate Sandy for some more amazing inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to comment on everyone's blog for the chance of a prize.

Happy Crafting

Hugs
