Merry Christmas everybody!!! But most of all, Merry Christmas Alyce Keegan if you hit this blog!!
Now if this the first blog you hit with this hop then you may want to start at the beginning of the hop which is Mari's blog. If you are doing the hop you should have come here from Nini's blog and I'll tell you your next hop at the end of this post.
By pure coincidence I told you about the Kit and Clowder classes and community yesterday.... well, this hop is for the chief of Kit and Clowder, Alyce Keegan and it's supposed to be a complete surprise. The blog is to wish her a very Merry Christmas and a fabulous 2015. Alyce, if you read this, I haven't signed up for your classes yet but if I do decide to follow a class it'll be yours, I've seen some amazing improvements to people's coloring over the past months so I have already been convinced about the quality of your lessons. I just need to be sure I'll have time to actually do the lessons before I sign up. But even without following your lessons I love the community you've build around Kit and Clowder. I already said yesterday on my blog that it has been a joy to see a community where the main focus is
appreciation for each others work and a shared love for crafting, there
is WAY to much negativity going around on some of the other pages online but non to be found on the Kit and Clowder one. Thank you for creating such a welcoming community for all!! I haven't been able to get your address but if you want to receive this card I'd be happy to send it to you if you PM me your address.
In preparation of this blog hop we've all been asked to join a Facebook page especially made for this purpose. On this page a few artists have been kind enough to give away some free images for participators to use and I decided to work with the one that Alicia's Cute Shop donated. Alicia thank you for letting us work with this cute digi! I've seen some other really cute digi's in your store so don't think this will be my lost work with your images.
Hope you like my card! To continue the hop your next stop is Laurigami (http://monchatbyscrap.blogspot.fr). Hope you are all having a fabulous Christmas everybody!!! And since I think this is my last post before the new year I want to wish all of you the most AMAZING 2015, make it the best year yet and stay safe if you are going to do fireworks please!!! You'll need those hands to craft!!
