Hello, and welcome to another fun filled and MAGICAL blog hop with Michelle Perkett Studio!
Before we get started, here is the blog hop order. You start at Michelle's Personal Blog. You should of come here from Pauline's Blog, where I am sure Pauline had something gorgeous to show you. Then from me you jump on over to Karen's Blog, where something magical awaits you! Don’t forget to leave some “love” along the way, we all love reading your comments.
Michelle has a little game going on, and you will find the question on her blog. To figure out the answer you must visit each blog along the hop, because some of us will have a secret letter for you! When you get all the letters, you then put them together to figure out what the answer is. Once you have your answer, you can email Michelle at www.michelleperkett.etsy.com/. The first one to answer correctly will win “Missy The Mistletoe Pixie”.
For my first card/tag I used Michelle’s Buddy The Christmas Pup and Feel The Magic Christmas sentiment for the tag.
Then when I got Michelle’s new image Missy, I knew I had to make another card for the hop. So here she is.
It’s hard to see it in the picture, but it has some crackling. I doubled embossed with ultra thick clear embossing powder, then stuck it in the freezer for a bit. Once it got hard, I bent the image in different directions to get the cracked look. After that I used Antique Linen distress ink, and sponged it over the whole image, to give it an aged effect. Then I made her into a Christmas ornament.
Before this year, I would of said, the magic of Christmas for me, is all about my family past and present. The excitement in the children’s faces, the decorations, the food, and all the traditions that we love, and still look forward to, are what makes my family what it is today!
This year though, the Magic, will be on Christmas morning, when I will be watching my grand-son Owen open his presents, even though he is over 3000 miles away! Thanks to Skype, I will see the wonder in his little face, when he realizes that, yes Santa Claus really did come last night!
Well, I hope you are enjoying our “Holiday Magic” blog hop so far, I know I can’t wait to see the rest of the blog hop, and all the gorgeous cards/projects.
Lastly I have a secret letter for you, and the letter is “I”. Good luck ladies!
