Cloud 9 Blog Hop {November}


 
What day is today?  (other than Friday....yippee!)  It's time for the Cloud 9 Blog Hop!  This is a fun time for me as I put to use those fabulous iamges from Wplus9 stamps.  I'm a huge fan and having a challenge to spark my creativity is just what I need sometimes!
 
This month was a gorgeous photo with crisp white quilted bedding with a holiday motif.  I chose to go with the quilted look and that bold blue and red color combo.  First using the Quilt Cuts 2 Die, I impressed the die into my cardstock.  Using the same quilt block die again, this time only diecutting the pattern with turquoise cardstock and adhering the pieces over my impressed pattern.  Then a simple heart was placed over the center. 
 
Sprit of Christmas

 Here is the inspiration photo for this month.....isn't it just gorgeous??
 
 
 
Thank you so much for stopping by!  I always appreciate your time spent here!
