Whimsy and Stars Christmas Hop



It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  To get ready for the season, we are having a blog hop to show off all the Christmas and winter themed images available from Whimsy and Stars Studio and to introduce the new Winter 2013 design team!

If you just arrived from Debra's blog, you are on the right track!  If not, please start at the beginning of the hop at the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog to make sure you don't miss out on anything. Hop along and leave a comment for each member of  design team.  The hop will end on Friday, December 7th at midnight EST.  One random winner, to be announced on the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog on December 8th, will be picked from all the comments received to win the Grand Prize of THREE Digi Stamps.

For my project I used the super sweet Ornament Girl image. SO much fun to color and glitter this one up, I love all the fur trim on the little outfit, I have it covered with Glamour Dust for super sparkle. I used some glossy accents on the ornament, to make it look shiny and glass like. 




For the duration of the hop,  Mabelle is offering a special gift with purchase. With any order from the Whimsy and Stars Studio Etsy store, you can select one of two special images, Stocking Ted or Xmas Tag.

Thank you for hopping with us today!  Your next stop on the hop is the talented Lesa's blog.  

Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop on the hop to increase your chance of winning the Grand Prize!

Here is the entire blog hop list in case you get lost along the way:
