Season's Givings Blog Hop

 ** Edited to add -  the winner of the giveaway is Sandi. I've emailed you!
Thanks to everyone for hopping along with us! ;)

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Season's Givings blog hop!

I am so excited to be participating in the hop this year and I have a card (and video) to welcome the New Year and say to say thank you to all of you for your support and encouragement in the past year! 

For my card, I used a whole lot of silver and gold to create a New York City themed New Year's card that has a fun window on the front and gold metallic fireworks on the inside.

I used the Hero Arts Happy New Year stamp set along with some fun silver foil polka dot acetate and the New York Skyline die from My Favorite Things to create the fun scene on my card.

To see how I created my card you can check out the video below:



I also want to take this time to say thank you to all of you for stopping by my blog and visiting my YouTube channel and commenting and liking my photos on Instagram. I love the crafty community and am so inspired by all of you every single day. 

This past year brought a lot of card making but it also brought a lot of new crafty adventures... I have rediscovered my love for colouring and even started to draw. I have been painting, and practicing calligraphy and making felt ornaments and pom poms... pretty much anything and everything. For the first time I have felt like it was okay to indulge in multiple creative hobbies instead of just one and I am having so much fun! Thank you for joining me on the journey!

Before I go and head off into 2017, I wanted to share a giveaway with all of you. Just something to say thank you for being the best online friends a girl could ask for. 


Just leave a comment on this post by January 6th and I'll pick a random winner. Thank you to all of you for stopping by!

Full list of hoppers with giveaways at each and every stop!

  14. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity and artistry; you inspire me so much. My crafting goal for 2017 is to try to create at least once a week. Doesn't seem like a lot but balancing work, my family, and taking care of my mom leaves little time for anything else but crafting freshens my soul so it's important.
