3 Girl JAM Christmas Inspiration Hop


*********************************************
Welcome to the 
3 Girl JAM Christmas Inspiration Hop 
and Challenge
*********************************************
The Christmas Inspiration Hop is being held
to kick off the Christmas Challenge on the 3GJ Challenge Blog.

Who doesn't love new followers, right???
 And after you are done, please feel free to head over
to the Pinque Peacock Blog and Pinque Peacock Website to have a look around!

The entire 3 Girl JAM Design Team, along with Myself and Heather Lynn
have made projects using wonderful products from the 3 Girl JAM Shop
and Pinque Peacock Store (on FB).

Here is my HOP Project

I made this card last weekend during a fun Stampin' Up Party with Sara and Karen.  I had a lot of fun, and realized, how wonderful their entire line of products are to work with.


I wanted to add one of the fabulous Flair Buttons by 3 Girl JAM.
Isn't that just tooooooo cute??

The cute little snowman on the flair button inspired me to use a Beaded Stick Pin from Pinque Peacock (that matched)!  I simply added a "green scarf" to the snowman pin
using  Mistletoe Crinkle Ribbon, part of the wonderful Winter Bundle
^^^doesn't that just scream MERRY CHRISTMAS to you^^^
 
Now, you must know, that with this being a Christmas
Season Post....there have to be fun presents . . .

  15. As always, beautiful cards!! I'm slowly getting back into the crafting mood. I made a Cake smash banner for my niece who turns 1 dec 30. Sadly though, this is the first I've looked at blogs since leaving the bad "team" She kinda took my craftiness away from me. I'm determined to get it back though:) and this was a great start!!
