Warmest Wishes Blog Hop Challenge

Hey everyone and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! Sorry I am late with today's post, but I have been SO SICK... It's been hard for me to concentrate on anything. Enough about me, let's get to the good stuff!!

Today is the last of the Blog Hop Challenges for There She Goes, and tonight we have the new Warmest Wishes set with matching Dies!!

Torico is in the mood to make winter all warm and cheery. She has illustrated a fabulous set that will keep you in stitches or get you in the mood to make gingerbread houses and sugar cookies. The set includes hearts, stars, and snowflakes to create a one of a kind snowman or holiday tree. This set also includes six dies – so warm up your die cutting machine and let the baking begin. What set wouldn’t be complete without a few sentiments to add to your winter projects?

Warmest Wishes is a 4x4 set that includes a total of 23 stamps and six dies and will sell for $31.50.

Would you like to win the new Warmest Wishes stamp sets? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post. You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday November 26th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.

For my card today, I had SO MUCH FUN making it. I used the Warmest Wishes Die, and some X-Press It Blending card, and cut out my two mittens and stockings, and a snowman. I then colored them with my Copics, and paper pieced the scarf with some MME The Merry Days of Christmas paper, which was also used on the rest of the card. I paired it with Fossil, Mellow Moss, and Cranberry Crisp cardstock. I added some Jute Twine to my stockings and mittens, and used some White Twill Ribbon-both from the Ribbon Carousel. My sentiment was cut out using the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics. Not a single brad or spiral clip was used on this card, which should definitely prove my lack of feel good, lol.

Here is a look at the die that goes along with this AWESOME set!

Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to leave a comment on the other girl's posts. You never know where the candy will be!!
