Angels Landing Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the Angels Landing November Blog Hop! Today we're showing you the newest digi sets for November, Polar Bear Cubs and Button Bugs. If you missed the beginning of the hop, head over to Judi's blog and follow the links. If you've come here from Cindy Royal's blog, then you're right on track with the hop.

You'll want to be sure and stop by everyone's blogs in the hop. Why?.....because there's blog candy up for grabs on FOUR of them! Whoo-hoooo!

I have two cards to show you today. The image and sentiment on the first card are from Polar Bear Cubs.



I added some frosted lace stickles to the bear's hat and the snow on the sentiment, and glittered up the chipboard snowflake with ultrafine pearl glitter and diamond glaze. The edges of the main image, sentiment tag, and embossed snowflake panel are all sponged with bashful blue ink. The card base is Prism Twilight Medium.

The image and sentiment on this second card are from the new Button Bugs set.



Judi was so clever in designing this set!.....the images work with REAL buttons (sizes 1/4" and 3/8") or you can punch them out and create your own faux buttons. The DP and buttons are Basic Grey's Wisteria. I added some lavender Stickles around the paper pieced wings. The card base is Prism Wizard Dark.

Here's a picture of the inside.....this *hi* sentiment is also from Judi's Button Bugs set.



Okay, next up in the hop is Cindy Haffner! Head on over and check it out!
