December Cloud9 Blog Hop

Hello Wplus9 fans!

Welcome to the December Cloud9 Blog Hop! We have a big month for you - Suzanne has picked two fabulous photos to inspire you and we have three amazing guest designers joining us!

We are so lucky to have Amy Kolling, Maureen Merritt, and Kim Singdahlsen sharing their creations with us this month. These ladies are fabulous!

Here are the inspiration photos for this month:

I loved the second photo, with all the different items arranged so beautifully. I took inspiration from their placement along with the patterns and pops of red to create this card:

I so enjoyed pulling together all the different elements to use on this card. In addition to some patterned paper, a few buttons, a wooden snowflake and some washi tape, I used images from Folk Art Flurries, Mehndi Medallions, Spring Tags, Fair Isle Backgrounds, and Christmas Wishes. I love spreading all the stamp sets out and picking out bits and pieces from each to combine.

And now I have another holiday card to add to the stack. Its a good thing!

I am so glad that you've stopped by to see me today, I hope you'll play along with this month's Cloud9 Blog Hop with the chance to win fabulous Wplus9 prizes! You have until 10 am on December 12th to link up with us over on the Cloud9 Blog.
