All That Glitters Blog Hop!


Woo Hoo! It's finally here....the All That Glitters Blog Hop!
-A great line-up of glittery, Christmas creations and lots of fun prizes along the way. If are following the hop, you should have arrived here from Gaby Creates. If you haven't been following the hop and would like to, here is the order.


A Place for My Cards - Jeannie Phillips

Card Dreams - Nana Donna

Cardz TV - Mary

The Cricut Couple - Bobby and Jill

The Cricut Diaries - Jennifer and Summer

Daily Grace Creations - Donna and Peggy


Love, Laughter and Creations - Sherri (That's me....and that's here!)
MelissaMade - Melissa Forquer


And here is my creation:



For my project, I created a cute little pair of penguins using George basic shapes. I used a blue background embossed with the Dots folder....added some Martha Stewart snowflake punches inked in blue and silver and added a rhinestone.....a cute little Merry Christmas stamp from Michael's $1 bin.....and set the penguin pair on snow drifts made of torn paper....inked in blue.....and brushed with glitter glaze and Martha Stewart sanding glitter.



Here's the recipe for the little penguins:

2" circles - 2 black (head and body) 1 color (hat)

1 1/2" circle - 1 white (tummy)

3/4" circle - 2 black/2 white (eyes)

2" oval - 1 color (hat brim)

1 3/4" oval - 1 white (face)

1" oval - 2 black (flippers)

1/2" oval - 3 yellow (nose, feet) 2 color (ear muffs)

Added lots of glitter to these guys! And some silver ink on the edges.

Now to thank you for coming to our blog hop, here is the prize I'm giving away....The Christmas Card Solutions cartridge. Just add you name to Inlinkz and please leave a comment on this post to enter.
