One Stitch At A Time - Blog Hop!!

Happy Sunday Morning everyone.

My prayers go out to all of those affected by the horrible school shooting in Connecticut. My heart aches for all those affected and for the brave staff who gave their own lives to try to save the children and the staff that acted so heroic to help keep the children safe. My heart aches for the beautiful young souls that are now with Jesus. Such a senseless, sad act that I can not comprehend.

Today we have a blog hop at One Stitch At A Time. The challenge runs from 16th December to January 5th. You should have arrived from the talented Nikki's - NMCard Creations! If you did not and just happened upon me.. well #1 - I am REALLY lucky to have you stop by :) and then.. if you would like to begin at the beginning LOL Hop on over to Choccy's Place and you can start there!

Copic: E40 for the hair, R20, R22, R24, R27, R29, R39

I used Candi - Holly Berries and added Martha Stewart Crafts Tinsel Glitter to the hat. I popped the white on the hat and parts of the face, the mustache, the eyebrows. The papers are all scraps. The awesome Image is by Teri (Delicious Doodles).


Your next stop will be Hazel!!

1. You can hop, but you MUST leave a message on every DT blog. and collect the letters emailing them upon completion of the hop to ...

You are totally right it's senseless and makes everyone feel sick just thinking about it! I'm keeping those family in my prayers and can't imagine what they are going through right now... :(

Your card as always is totally stunning. I really love how you always pop everything up. Can't imagine how long it must take you but no kidding you are such a winner ;) Love it!
