December Pals Blog Hop

We're so glad you could join us for the final Pals Blog Hop of 2012! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to celebrate all of our favorite occasions of the year! And what's a little celebration without some sparkle?!

You've probably hopped over from Maggie Mata at Maggie Made Cards, I'm stop number 21 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Stampin' Up! products from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

Christmas is my favorite holiday.  I love shopping for the perfect gifts, singing along to Christmas carols on the radio, and spending time with my family. My card for the Pals Blog Hop is done in non-traditional colors with a little sparkle. 

I hope you can see some of the sparkle on the card.  Silver Glimmer paper was used with the Snowflake Bigs Die.  The Christmas sentiment was stamped with Island Indigo and then Dazzling Diamonds were added for little sparkle.  A row of rhinestones was place below the sentiment.  Can you ever have too much bling?  I don't think so.
