The Creating Blog Hops Cafe..Snowflakes Blog Hop

Welcome to...
The Creating Blog Hops Cafe'

Our group is here to inspire you every month with many different projects that have been made by some of the most amazing crafters that I know. We are dedicated to be here to inspire you every single month, on the last Saturday of the month, all year long. Whether it be a specific theme, season, or event.  So, grab yourself a Latte and hop along with us while we proudly show off our projects to you each and every month.

Your first stop along this hop will be with...

Robin Lane with Create-A-Latte 
So, if you are by chance, then head to Robin and start at the beginning.
  What I have to share with you today is a couple cards I made with Snowflakes in them.  The first is a Center step card. I love doing them, I used papers that I got from a dear friend for my Birthday.  The papers were in pretty shades of blues.


The second card was a simple A2 size card, made with CTMH Frosted papers and the Frosted card WOTG kit stamp set.  I used the Colonila white ink, which is pigment ink..more vibrant for the snow flake stamp
