~ Scraptastic Designs Blog Hop ~

Welcome to the Scraptastic Designs blog hop!!
This hop is to kick off our "SCRAPTASTIC MONDAYS" challenge. Starting November 7th at 10:00am and we will have a new challenge every week.

If you came are here from Karen's blog then you are in the right place but if you just happened to be stopping by you will want to start at the beginning which is Cindy's blog.

For my project today I chose to use the image "Sweet Gingerbread Tags". This actually comes with 2 images a girl & a boy. For my project I chose to use only the boy.
I printed the stamps out on Kraft cardstock and then colored them in with my bic markers. (I was inspired to did this by DCWV's new kraft paper stacks.) I used Viva Decors pearl pen in Cream to color the frosting. It gives it such a great effect! I then added Twine, buttons, and stitching to finish off my card

Here is a close up of this wonderfully cute and fun Digi.

Now you should be off to Shelly's Blog
