Holiday Garden Walk

Go to

Welcome to the first ever Paper Garden Projects Garden Walk blog hop!! We hope that you'll grab a cup of coffee or hot cocoa and take a stroll through the blogs of all the Paper Gardeners. You'll enjoy some wonderful Holiday inspiration on the way!! You should have reached my blog from Tangii's blog. If not, you may want to start back at Melissa's Blog, so you can be sure to be in the running for the prizes!!

As you walk, be sure to subscribe to each Gardener's blog if you haven't already, and take note of their name and the special treat that they have listed in their blog post. A comment is nice, too, if you have time!! When you're finished with the tour, send an e-mail to with your list of the designers and their treats and, if your list is correct, you will be entered in a random drawing to win one of 3 prizes!! You need to send an e-mail to the address above; please don't leave your list as a comment!! You have until midnight (EST) on Nov. 24 to make your list and check it twice. :-)

Without further ado, here's my card ...

I used the ornament from the Impression Obsession set Snowflakes and stamped it in turquoise ink. I added lots and lots of shimmer and even a few borders with my Stardust gel pen. It really sparkles in real life!! After hanging my ornament with a silver cord, I used my watercolor brush to pull some color onto the ornament's bow and onto the holly in the middle. Then I added a few pearls to finish it off.

Simple and Sparkly. :-)
Oh, and by the way... my Holiday Treat is Sweet Songs.

So, do you want to see the Grand Prize??? It's fabulous! In fact I wouldn't mind winning myself! LOL! Here it is... a festive collection of Holiday paper crafting goodies!!

The prize includes:

The second prize is a $7 gift certificate to the Paper Garden Projects store.

The third prize is a $5 gift certificate to the Paper Garden Projects store.

All right now, put on your walking shoes and head to

Cathy's blog

(or just stay in your jammies - we won't tell)!!
