This month MWLW is hoping with Through The Craftroom Door!

Today is a special day at Through The Craftroom Door.  Not only is it release day for their Magazine, but it is also the first anniversary celebration since Cara began overseeing the magazine and running the site!  Happy Anniversary Cara and everyone at TTCRD! :)  Wishing you many years of success. I am so happy and proud that My Whimsical Little World is taking part in your special celebration....thank you! :)

This is the first of four mini blog hops that will start Sunday morning and run through the following Saturday at 6pm (Arizona time). Make sure to stop by each sponsor's shop to see what they have to offer for your scrap-booking and card-making needs.  Join in the fun! So grab your beverage of choice and get ready to hop with TTCRD.

The theme for the hop is "Celebration".  Next to Halloween, Christmas is my favorite holiday.  I love the lights, color and excitement when little ones are around waiting for family or a certain big guy to come around. :)

Hope you like my card. I used the MWLW digi stamp "Celebrate" (the reindeer), which you can find at the MWLW digi shop.  I used Copics to color him up.  I also learned that fussy cutting is not for me, so I turned to my good old friend, the Cameo, to cut him out with a border.  I made the sign in the SD program and colored it in with Copics.  I doodled the snow in with a white Sukura gel pen...and created layers with colored card stock.  I added some sparkly embossed snowflakes to the background to give it more of a festive feel.

I also had a bit of extra energy and could not resist playing with our soon to be released "Polar Buddies" digi stamps.  I was super excited and had so much fun that I created two backgrounds. :) I made a video about how I created my northern lights. Hope you like the cards and the video.
For my second card I used the snow background rubber stamp from My Favorite Things instead of using the white gel pen...I think next time I will do a white emboss so the snow flakes and the sentiment stand out more. :)

Now put your feet up and get ready to hop. :)
Here is the hop line :) Happy hopping! :)

Don't forget to visit each week at TTCRD for the rest of the mini blog hops. :)

have a creative week
Paola :)
