UStamp Blog Hop 2011 - Up On the Roof Top - Buttons and a Bow


Hellooo everyone and welcome to UStamp with Dawn and Friends Blog Hop 2011 - Up On the Rooftop Blog Hop.  We are sooo happy that you have decided to join us for a super creative and fun hop.  EEkk I am so excited about this hop because it ROCKS! or maybe I should say it HOPS!  You might think well what is so special about this blog hop, well...there is a link at the bottom of my post that will take you to the home page for the hop where you can download all of the PDF's for every single project for FREE!  It's a Christmas Gift from Dawn and the rest of us at UStamp. So are you ready?  Here we go.  If you have been following the Hop in order you have just come from Caroline Colgan's blog where she created the cutest little Owl Pop-Up card for your viewing pleasure.  For my project I chose to alter a picture frame with Stampin' Up"s! Berry Bouquet Buttons.  So here we go.

This was a super fun project,  I think it took me more time to decide how I wanted to put the buttons on it than to glue them down.  I then added some bling and a bow, cut out a J & Y in Red Glitter Paper and added a felt Holly wreath and ta-da!
Here's my matching card and envelope...
and here is the set.  I'm so glad you decided to hop with us.  As a Special Thank You for stopping by my blog I am giving away BLOG CANDY!!
