Blog Hop 41

Hello everyone and welcome to our latest Blog Hop! You probably have come from the lovely Lissa, who always makes amazing cards!

It is a rainy Sunday in Sydney just when the weather was beginning to warm up we get colder weather. It is perfect weather for staying home and making a card.

Our sketch for this week:

I love the simplicity of this sketch. I am drawn toward clean and simple cards and this sketch fits the bill. I knew I wanted to make a Christmas card but I haven't bought any of the new papers yet (this is a huge confession for me considering I am a patterned paper addict). This is what I came up with:

I started with a card base of Cherry Cobbler and then decided to use the specialty paper from the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper. I stamped the sentiment from Seasonal Bells using Cherry Cobbler and die cut it using Bunch of Banners. I then cut 2 more the banner in Cherry Cobbler and cut them to frame the sentiment.

I quite enjoyed making this card, but I enjoy making most cards!!

Next on the hop is Maree. I always enjoy seeing what she makes!

Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!



  1. I really like the Cherry Cobbler with the gold polka dots, a perfect pair for a great Christmas card!

  2. Love your christmas card Allison with that cute saying. I love cherry cobbler for chrissie cards and those gold dots are lovely. I must have missed that being in the Pop of Pink DSP.

  3. Great card Allison, Cherry Cobbler with gold is the BEST combo. Hope you are doing well and YAY school holidays start is a week.
