12 Days of Christmas Guest Designer Day 12

If you all are here from the 12 Days of Christmas blog hop, WELCOME! I am so honored to have Lisa as me to be a guest designer for this hop!! If you've lucked up on this post you need to head on over to Lisa's blog, Honeybearz Designs and hop through her 12 days of Christmas blog hop. She worked very hard to put it together and has some amazingly talented women in the hop each and everyday, as well as lots of great sponsors and prizes to be won. 


Today I created a sweet and simple card to share with you all. I wanted to get a few projects done, but I'm dealing with a sinus infection and an ear infection (again!) for the last two days. Not something in my plans, but nothing I can do about it but deal with it. : )

Here is the card I created. 


I didn't get Christmas cards made this year as I had planned to, so I think I'm safe to say I got a jump start on next year's cards! It was my plan to get them done throughout the year, so this is a great start! For this card I used some Christmas patterned paper and the current freebie paper piecing/cutting file from Scraptastical Kreations. You can check out all the paper piecing and cutting files HERE.
Thank you all so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my guest designer project for the 12 Days of Christmas blog hop. I enjoyed making this card to share with all of you! I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Scrappy New Year!!! 

Happy Scrappin',

Now, on to my project for today. I created this cute but simple banner. This is my first ever banner, and I have to say, I'm pretty darn proud of it! It is simple - nothing extravagant, but I'm a very contemporary/modern/simple styled person when it comes to my home decor, so this fits RIGHT in! 

So here it is!! The paper has a nice shimmer to it, which you really can't see in this photo, but I really love the subtle Christmas colors in this paper. Off the top of my head, I'm not sure which company this paper is from. If you'd like to know - be sure to ask in a comment and I'd be happy to let you know.

Ok... so here it really is! : ) I apologize for the photo. I wasn't able to get a great shot because I waited until the sun went down (before 5 pm) and wasn't able to get good lighting after dark. For the banner I used the Scraptastical Kreations Banner Blitz paper piecing pattern set/ cutting file


NOW... I'm sure you allllll want some yummy blog candy, right?!?!
Well... here it is. One winner will receive the Banner Blitz file from Scraptastical Kreations! This is an awesome file, and you can do SO many things with it!
