Sweet Pea Stamps Blog Hop and Crafting By Designs Guest Designer Post

Good Morning! I have a very sad post to make today. Today Lynette is closing the doors on Sweet Pea Stamps and we, the fans and some of the DT, are having a special blog hop to wish her a very fond farewell. I love so many of the designers in her store, so I hope they will all start their own store somewhere soon!

I am also very excited to be a guest designer for Crafting By Designs, who are being sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps today too, so I thought it would be an ideal opportunity to join both posts together.

You should have hopped to me from Cindy's blog and I hope you loved her project!

I have used the adorable Sally and Snowball by Conie Fong and created a cute Christmas card.
