The Stamping Boutique Blog Hop

Welcome, welcome, welcome to my blog as part of The Stamping Boutique blog hop! I am really excited to be a part of this...it's been a long time since I have been able to join in with a blog hop!
First things first....you "should" have come here from Melissa's Blog, Smudges in Time if you didn't...start back at the beginning at Christys blog Christy's Zaney Creations and work your way through! I promise it will be worth it! I mean did you see that EACH stop along the way gives you a chance to win a free digi AND if you hop all the way through, leave your comments on each blog and a comment at the end on the challenge blog you could possibly win the ENTIRE Smoochie line of digis.

I love that card. It is absolutely wonderful. I love the frame under your candle image. With those jewels it shows off your candle and the way you added the sparkle on the windows makes it look like snow actually behind the window. Great job, I love it. Thank you for sharing it with us , hugs CathyK
