Seasons Giving Blog Hop




Welcome to the Seasons Givings Blog Hop!  This hop is going to be a little bit different, in the fact that every single person on the list below, is giving something away.  All you need to do, is go to their blog, leave a comment, and you will be entered to win the blog candy shown on their blog.  Really, really easy.  Now grab a cup of coffee, or tea, or maybe some hot chocolate, whatever your favorite is, and start hopping.  
Here is to starting off the year 2013 in a fun way!



I made a card using a new Verve set called No Matter What (releasing in Jan.) and the Anja's Large Oval die.  I had an extra die and thought I would share it, along with some Zva Creative self adhesive crystals, Indigo Bleu PinkPaislee paper and London Market Chipboard Buttons.

I thought I might share a little something else with you too.  As you read this, we're in Pasadena for the Tournament of Roses Parade.   If you get a chance to watch it New Year's morning, (We record HGTV) look for two things:  The Grand Marshall, Jane Goodall will be riding in my Father-in-law's antique carriage which he is driving with 4 of his Friesian horses.  (They'll be 9th in the parade) and my Brother-in-law will be pulling the president of the Valley Hunt club and his family using Leyendekker Friesians and one of my FIL's antique carriages.  My FIL has been driving for the Valley Hunt club for 30 years.  Quite a fun milestone.  It's always interesting to be behind the scenes.  We get to go out in the middle of the night (usually around 2 am) and look at all the floats lining up for the parade.  You can get really close and see all the fabulous fine details.

edited to add:  Rose Parade Photos post

Okay...now for the real reason you're here.  :)
Blog Candy!!



This blog candy is over $50 in value.  Fun stuff!!  You have until 7:00 am PT, Jan. 7 to enter.  I will announce the winner sometime Jan. 8.  Good luck, and happy hopping!  :)
(will ship anywhere)



Thanks for dropping by!
Happy Stamping!!
