Joyful Stars December Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars December Blog Hop! If you've come from Joyce's blog you're on the right track. If you just happened upon my blog, that's fine, just continue from here and when you get back to me, you know you've seen them all! 

My project is a Christmas card featuring the new Hopscotch paper packet, new white shimmer trim, and white enamel stars. The sentiment was created with the A Typeface stamp set. Lastly the amigo is my Sticky Boy! 

Sticky Boy is a much loved icon by Close To My Heart consultants. He first appeared to introduce our amazing My Acrylix® Stamp Sets 10 years ago! We are celebrating that anniversary and Sticky Boy's birthday with the Deal of the Decade special this month. Sticky Boy appears to consultants at Close To My Heart's annual convention. I was lucky to find one in Washington DC in 2010, but sadly he met with a cruel fate.

This was right before Convention 2012 in Dallas. I was hoping to get another one and lucky me I found a little baby Sticky Cowboy. Yeehaw!

Even better was the 2013 Convention in Disney World. Close To My Heart supports the charity Operation Smile and during the auction it was my privilege to bid on and win a full sheet of Sticky Boys. This stamp set has not been used until today! I wanted to make special cards for my amigas this Christmas. 

Your next stop is Krista's blog.

Just in case you get lost or experience a technical difficulty, you might want to keep Joyce's blog open in a separate tab as she has a full list of participants!
