LULU BLOG HOP!!!

Hi Sistahs!! Welcome to the very first Lulu Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! We're so glad you came by! Today for your viewing pleasure, I made a quick little round card using my Circle Nestabilities and Henrietta LuLu. Is she not adorable???



Instead of stamping her in black and coloring, I colored directly on the stamp using my Stampin' Up markers. I saw this done on Lori Craig's blog (hi girlie!) and thought it was genius! So I decided to make this a Christmas card!

Here is the MASTER LIST of the Blog Hop participants today in case there is a break anywhere:
