It's a Sweet Pea Christmas Hop!

Welcome to the Sweet Pea Christmas theme blog hop! Our fun theme hop this year was to pick a stamp that's not christmas related and turn it into a christmas theme card!

So, I took a wonderful stamp from Sweet Pea artist Nikki Burnette called "Bailey". If you check out the image on the Sweet Pea Website (CLICK HERE), you will see that this image is totally not designed to be christmas theme. But, if you check her out now, she sure looks Christmas-y, huh? I think the blueberry that she is sitting on turns into a pomegranite! Too cute. I hope you will see all kinds of fun ideas from all the great artists on the design team today for taking your Sweet Pea Stamps and turning them into Christmas stamps.

Now, off on the hop, the next blog is Karina's stunning work at the Creawitch blog (CLICK HERE). Be sure to leave comments on each blog as you hop, Sweet Pea is giving away a $20 gift certificate! The winner will be announced on the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog. Have fun on the hop!

Cheers, Holley
