Abby's Surprise Birthday Hop!

Happy Birthday Abby!!
Welcome to Abby's Surprise Birthday hop! If you arrived from Jenny you are in the right place! If you would like to start at the beginning go to see Michelle!
Abby's hop is Mexican's what I created!
The image is from Dilly Beans Digi Stamps, I colored it with my Copics and because I know Abby loves layers & bright colors-that is just what I did!
I used Jaded Blossom's Sweet Birthday Wishes stamp set for the sentiment, on the flag die from FLAG DIE and the scalloped flag from FLAG DIE 2!
Also if I love to make these letters for the birthday hops...Abby's is slightly different from the others I have made. I knew I wanted to use her favorite paper for the letter so--her A is a little smaller! :0)

Happy Birthday Abby!! Abby is also leaving the Jaded Blossom Design Team :0(
I will miss you tons!
I hope you love all the projects!
Make sure to leave comments on all the blogs to be entered to win the MEXICAN FOOD Jaded Blossom Stamp set
Next up is my friend Ashley!
Don't forget to tell Abby Happy Birthday on her blog!! :0)
Here is the entire line up in case you get lost!

Now for the best part of the card....
The snowman is on an Action Wobble!!! This is my first time using an Action Wobble and I have to admit....I might be addicted! :0)

Warm and Cozy Winter Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the Warm and Cozy Winter Blog Hop!
If you arrived from Elecia then you are in the right place!
Who doesn't love a nice warm cup of hot cocoa to cozy up with? I love hot cocoa :0)
Here are my projects:
I made this card with JADED BLOSSOM's Hot Cocoa stamp set.
 Echo Park paper, and a little Trendy Twine :0)

Next I made a little gift set:

Inside is a packet of yummy hot cocoa, and some marshmallows...they are in the back and I forgot to take a picture of the back :(
I used Jaded Blossom's Hot Cocoa stamp set, Jaded Blossom's Fancy Topper Die,  for the top of the Gusset Bag. On the inside I also used Jaded Blossom's Curly Die and Curly Everyday Borders along with another stamp from the Hot Cooca set!
Added a little bow of Trendy Twine for a perfect added touch!

I hope you liked my Warm & Cozy winter projects!
