Welcome to the Blog Hop!

Thanks for following us on the Thoughts2Paper Blog Hop!

Seems too early to start thinking about Christmas. But if you're anything like me, it'll sneak up on you before you know it! The stamp from the Paper Company "Snowflake" collection (Let it Snow!) gave me the incentive for my card.

I wanted to do a new technique on my cards this year that I hadn't done before. As I am new to card-making, that pretty much left many choices. I decided that a gate card would give me chance to try a layout that I had seen a friend use for her holiday cards!

Supplies used: SEI, Glitzmas papers; Paper Company stamp, (Snowflake); Crystal glitter from Sulyn; Stickles, Icicle and Frosted Lace; Copics markers; stock ribbon from T2P, and Helmar adhesive. All of these supplies can be purchased at the T2P store!!

Go to the store by 8/28 and get a 40% discount on your order!Simply use the code CHAROOM!!

For my card, I used an image I found in my Clickart collection and split it into two individual snow "people", and cut the snowflake from some scrap plastic packaging I had saved. I love the technique, but wish I had planned better for the placement of the snowflake. I kinda covered up the poor guys' face! LOL!

At the conclusion of the hop, I will have a random drawing for a packet of Jolee's Christmas Dimensional Stickers! Just leave a comment here with your blog/email address, and maybe you'll win a little extra bling for one your pages! (Can mail to Stateside addresses only, please)

Have a great day and don't STOP now! The next blog is Rhonda's ( ) and she always has some super ideas!!
