 Here's the Grand Prize! (you can click on any photo and it will enlarge it)

SEVEN Darice Embossing Folders, 8 Small See D's Stamp Sets, One Large Stamp Set and....

Some pretty Webster's Pages goodness, Some TH Distress Embossing Powder, and some Martha Stewart tinsel. 

I would not be surprised if more things make it into that package before I ship it out! Hint, Hint! :)

I will draw a winner right after Christmas using

So, I have a few creations to share with you today! My first one is really simple but I think it turned out pretty cute. Here it is......

I started with a canvas and covered it with papers. The little tree and all of its layers were cut from the Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge at 7 inches. The owl stamps and sentiment are all by Hero Arts and the set is called Owl Christmas. I colored all of the 7 owls with my Copic markers. (Each owl represents someone in my family. Yes, I am blessed with 5 children!! :) ) I am going to hang this up in my living room. 

My 2 projects are cards. I just love these stamps!! My SFF Jessica got this set for me for my birthday and I have used them tons! 

The stamps are by The Craft's Meow. I colored in the images with my Copic markers. I love to add twine or my favorite 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon to my cards! 

My last creation is a small shadowbox I found new in the box at Goodwill for just $1! 

Here's a closer up view with the door open....

The cute little owl was cut using the Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge. The little hat I just hand cut with my Cutterbee scissors. Look at that cute little bow on the owl's hat! I made that using the 3 Girl JAM Bow Maker. You can make perfect bows every time!! The crinkle ribbon is also by 3 Girl JAM in Ice Blue. Did you notice that cute polka dot button on top of the washi tape strips?That was made by us over at Pinque Peacock. I love how it matches my little owl. 

That's all of my projects today. Thank you SO very much for taking the time to hop! I wish want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season!

Next you will head over to my sweet friend Teresa's Blog!!

Here is the full, amazing line up in case you get lost along the way!

Shrooms and Blooms Blog Hop

Welcome to the Shrooms and Blooms Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from Jenn's Blog, then you are on the right track! If you just stopped by and would like to start at the beginning, please go back to Jenn's Blog.

 We are so happy to have you join us today! You won't want to miss out on any of these whimsical mushroom projects!

One grand prize winner will win a the goodies pictured at your first stop (Jenn's Blog)! Please be a follower and leave a comment at all of the stops in the hop for the chance to win. There will also be other blog candy along the way! Make sure you return to Jenn's Blog and link up to be in the drawing for the goodies :)

For my first project, I made a quick little card.

I started off with Kraft cardstock and then used some patterned papers from the Bo Bunny Apple Cider collection. I stamped right on a printed paper, then colored in parts of the image with Copic markers. I inked all of the edges with Vinatge Photo Distress Ink then added some little hearts and twine and's done. The stamp is a Itty Bitty by Unity that my friend Jessica gave. Thanks, Jess!

Here's my next project that I made to share.

For this project I started with a 35 cent wood frame that I picked up at Goodwill. I painted it with acrylic paint and then glitter blasted it with Krylon Glitter Blast Spray Paint. I used the Paisley Cricut cartridge to cut the mushroom and "totally". The little flowers are made from felt and were in my stash. The sentiment stamp is by K. Andrew Design from the set "Owly Hoo". I pop dotted the butterfly for extra dimension.

Thank you so much for hopping with us today! I know you will get lots of inspiration from this list of talented crafters!

    Thank you so much for hopping with us today and thank you, Julie, for having me join in this hop!!  I have made 4 different projects to share with you using 3 Girl JAM and Pinque Peacock goodies! Here's what I came up with...........

    For this card I used 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in Holly Berry, Pinque Peacock Fabric Covered Button, stamp by Unity, EK Success tree punch,  and some pretty patterned papers. I fussy cut the little snow people out of the patterned paper and hand cut a heart out of fabric to add to the button.

    For this card I used 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in Aqua Splash, a tiny Pinque Peacock flower, Unity stamps, patterned papers, and some pretty orange square jewels. I just love that little penguin!!

    For this card I used a large Pinque Peacock Fabric Covered Button, 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon in Aqua Splash and Holly Berry, patterned papers, Kraft cardstock, Stickles,  and Unity Stamps. (Thanks, Jessica, for letting me craft with you and use your Unity stamps and cute papers!!)  I am entering this card in the "SNOW" challenge # 137 over at  Craft Your Passion Challenge Blog.

    For my last project, I had picked up a wooden frame from Goodwill for 35 cents (a while back) and I painted it red. Then I sprayed it with silver glitter spray paint. I then covered the board with 3 Girl JAM burlap. I added lots of buttons with hot glue and used a couple of the Christmas Flair buttons by 3 Girl JAM. I just love them!! I used the 3 Girl JAM bow maker to make the tiny crinkle ribbon bow (in Mistletoe) that I added to the top. The pretty red flower is by us at Pinque Peacock. I added a few other embellishments and button art was done! This was so much fun to make!  

    I hope you like my projects today! I am so happy you stopped by! I hope you are getting in the Christmas crafty spirit!
