Dare 2B Artzy Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to Dare 2B Artzy's Christmas Blog Hop!!

With Christmas a few months away (3 months to be exact on Sunday!!), our Designers thought it would be fun to have a blog hop sharing some inspiration with our new Christmas stamps! 
Creating Christmas cards is so much fun and we have a bunch of fun Holiday stamps for you to choose from!!

You should have arrived here from Tonya's blog. If you haven't and would like to hop along with us, please go back to the Dare 2B Artzy Blog to start at the beginning!  Be sure to follow each blog and leave comments along the way for your chance at winning!  We will randomly choose a winner from one of the blogs, so the more you comment, the more chances you have to win!!
The winner will receive a stamp set and ink pad!!
The blog hop will end Sunday evening at 7:00pm Central. 
We will then post a winner!!

I used the Dare 2B Artzy Penguin Fun Set and a teeny piece of Dare 2B Artzy Winter Plaid Paper along with a $1 wood ornament from Michael's to create a Christmas tree ornament.

First, I painted the whole ornament with Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Festive Berries.  I then used on of Tim's Stencils to add the smattering of Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Picket Fence.  I cut a small piece of the D2BA paper and glued it on along with one of those adorable penguins, the chunk of ice and the sentiment.  I finished it off by adding some seam binding ribbon to the top and some white lace to the edge.

I wish I had my tree up, so I could get a picture of it on my tree.  Yes, indeed, I would have my tree up 12 months a year if my family would let me!  LoVe Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by!  Back to Dare 2B Artzy with you to see all the lovely Christmas goodness in their shop!
