Belles and Whistles Christmas Blog Hop!!!!!!!

Welcome to stop number 10 on the Belles and Whistles blog hop. You should be hopping here from Rosette's Blog. If not pop on over to the beginning at the Belles and Whistle's blog. These are 6 GORGEOUS images that will begin pre-selling today. They will not begin shipping until the first of December.

I am so excited to share the Christmas Door image from Elisabeth Bell with you!!!! We were to showcase the stamps by making Christmas wrapping or gifts. I decided to do my favorite little box, the one sheet wonder(click for tutorial from SCS)!!! No cutting, no gluing, no template, nice and easy!!! This time I decided to emboss the box. I then added a strip of basic grey wassail paper. I colored the image with copics and cut out. I added some chunky glitter to the bottom for little snow banks and dazzling diamonds to the top of the door for icicles. I used two jumbo eyelets with this yummy burgundy ribbon to keep the box together. I think I"ll be filling this one with Hershey kisses and a gift card for my daughter's kindergarten teacher:)

To continue on......head over to the amazingly talented Kathy she's showing the Baking with Nana
image, so adorable!!!!! Make sure you're leaving comments along the way for your chance at the whole release!!!! Which is fabulous since it's too hard to pick a favorite!!
Thanks for stoppin' by!
