Whimsey Stamps Blog Hop - Holiday Release!

Welcome to the Whimsey Stamps Blog Hop!  There will be prizes scattered throughout the hop so be sure to go to everyone's blog and at the end of the hop,  1 lucky winner will win all 9 of the new release stamps! What a prize!  The hop starts with Bev!
You should be arriving at my blog from Patricia's Blog

I have created a picnic basket to go along with the little "Santa's Midnight Snack" by Crissy Armstrong.   I thought it would be perfect to put Christmas cookies in for the neighbors and it was soooooo easy to make.  I found the wonderful tutorial at RANDI'S blog.  I just changed up the sides a little bit. Please give Randi credit if you try the picnic basket.



 I added some poinsettias from Wild Orchid Crafts to the top along with some buttons for "pulls" and some ric rack.


 The cloth bows are from a dress I made over 17 years ago for my daughter! Wow! That's why we keep things huh!
The little ornaments hanging from the side are from Hobby Lobby.
I hope you are getting some wonderful inspiration from the blog hop!
The hop will end on Thursday Oct 7th at 12 noon (EST) winners will be announced on Oct 7th after the hop ends.


Your next stop is Crystal

Thank you for stopping by and good luck!!!

Hugs, Dena
