Hopping with the Llamas

Welcome to the Llama Blog Hop!  I hope you are enjoying all of the creations of my fellow Llamas!  Aren’t they fantastic?  If you have been following the hop, click the next Llama link at the bottom of the page and if you just got here, no worries!  You can follow the loop around or start at the beginning by clicking on the Llama Hop home page link.

Now, onto my projects!

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and our family rotates holidays, so my mom always hosts Thanksgiving, with everyone bringing their specialties.  Mine is green bean casserole…just sayin’.

I thought this would make a nice hostess gift for my mom!  And it’s got glitter.

I used Spice Cake DSP and some coasters I got at the dollar store.  For the wine charms I used some wine charms I also got at the dollar store and just removed the charms that came with them.  Some punches and scraps of paper and voila--wine charms!

Next is a Christmas card I CASE’d and used as one of the projects for a workshop I did last week.  I love the blank area between the two embossed areas! And it’s got glitter.

This card uses Garden Green CS, Whisper White CS, Real Red CS, Frostwood Lodge DSP, Snow Burst Embossing Folder, Red Glimmer Paper, Real Red ink, Stocking Builder Punch, Many Merry Messages stamp set, Linen Thread, Mini Jingle Bells, Real Red Grosgrain ribbon.

 And my last project is a Valentine’s treat holder.  I used our thin cello bags and picked out all red M&M’s from my bag of fall colored M&M’s.  The tag is so sparkly in real life.  I just love that Gold Smooch Spritz.  And I wanted pink velvet ribbon, so I just used my marker and made it pink!  And, guess what?  It’s got glitter!

I used Pink Pirouette Textured CS, Red Glimmer Paper, Just Add Cake DSP, Full Heart Punch, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Very Vanilla Velvet Stitched Ribbon, Pink Pirouette Marker, Gold Glow Smooch Spritz, 1x8" Cellophane Bag

Thanks for stopping by.  Now onto the next blog by the very talented Stephanie O!
