pazzles design team blog hop

Thanks for stopping by today! I'm excited to share a wintry card I made as part of the Pazzles Design Team Holiday Blog Hop.



To make the winter scene behind the house, I sewed two pieces of plastic bag together. I left a small opening to add glitter, sequins and die cut snowflakes, and then finished sewing the pocket closed. I used the Christmas Cottage and Snowflake files from the Pazzles Craft Room for this card.

Hop along to each of the Design Team Member's blogs and leave a comment. One lucky blog hop commenter will be chosen to win a Digital CD Download of their choice. Leave a comment on each designer's blog post, as the prize winner will be chosen randomly from one of the blogs. Comments will close on December 5, 2013 at midnight and the winner will be announced December 6, 2013.
