Ho Ho Ho! You have reached the end of the Blog Hop!

(What blog hop you ask? If you didn't get here from Angelique's blog, head over to the InSTyle Stamps blog and start the hop from the beginning! Lots of eye candy along the way!!)

After you check out my eye candy below and leave me a comment of course :) , please head back to the ISS Blog to enter your name (and vote) for a chance to win an FREE prize!!

I have 2 projects for you today. First up is my card I made with Vanessa. She's a digi Anime image available over at InStyle Stamps. She was colored with copics to match some adorable paper that Virginia sent me by Bo Bunny. Our theme this month was "Love", so she's showing the love! I added a bit of Smooch to her shirt and some flowers and gemstones to give her a bit of bling!

The heart in the lower left corner was cut out with a Spellbinders die. I doodled some dots on it as well as around my main panel to help draw your eye in to the main image. Oh, and BTW, the layout I used is based on the sketch this week at Papertake Weekly. It was a great little challenge, go check it out!

And on to the BONUS project! I was just in a great mood last night...unfortunately my cold meds kept me from sleeping any, but I did get some stamping done!

This little notebook is an old idea from ChiChi Allen...don't know if she still blogs, but gotta give her credit! Anywho, I made the notebook to fit around a little blank pad from Office Max. The ribbon ties it all neatly up so it stays shut. For this project I chose "Kylah Trying on Shoes", another InStyle anime image.

She was paper pieced with the same Bo Bunny papers. Her panels were cut with the Labels 4 Nestabilites. The sentiment is from "Botique SEntiments" by Amy R Stamps. Gems are Basic Grey Bling It and ribbon is May Arts.

OK, thats it for me! Head on back to the ISS blog for your chance to win! Don't forget the theme this month and leave me some love! It really makes my day :)
