Craft Hoarders Anonymous 2017 Holiday Blog Hop

Hello and good morning...

Hope you are all having a wonderful day.. and thanks for hopping along on the Holiday Blog Hop.



You should have arrived here from the lovely and talented DONNA ..... and I am your next stop. (If you didn't start at the beginning, then head over to GLORIA'S blog.  We are sharing holiday projects with you, and I decided to do a holiday decor piece for Christmas. Each year I like to add a crafty piece to our holiday decor around the house, so I decided to make a banner to hang in our living room. I used some older papers in my Christmas stash (think super old like Hambly, and KI... old school right??) Since our decor has alot of snowflakes, blues, whites and silvers, I decided to stick with that palette.

Here is my banner:




I used some much hoarded Hambly woodgrain paper, and some KI fussy cut snowflakes.. 


The blue squares on the banner are actual mini gift bags that I had in my craft drawer.



I also just went through my stash and added random embellies from my stash that coordinated with the colors, also from my stash are the Maya Road kraft snowflakes:

So for thanks for stopping by my blog, I am also offered up a RAK..... some goodies from my stash. If you are interested in the RAK... PLEASE answer this question: what is your favorite Holiday Cookie??? I have sooo many, but I just LOVE sugar cookies and egg nog cookies.

Now you are off to the lovely MARISA to she what she has crafted up......

Thanks again for stopping by and have a great day...
