Come Visit the North Pole Blog Hop

Welcome to the

 Blog Hop

To the North Pole, I’d like to go,
Over fields of ice and snow;
To see Santa dear,

Mrs. Claus and the elves would be
Waiting there for you and me;
Where they make the toys so busily!

If you’re following along with the hop, you should have arrived here from my crafty friend, Angela’s, blog.  If you want to start at the beginning head over to Connie’s blog.

This is a one-day blog hop, but you have until Sunday to finish hopping and leaving your love for all of these talented elves.

We have an awesome sponsor for this month!

One lucky winner will win a gift certificate

Be sure to check out the shop online HERE

What do you need to do to win? Easy… become a follower of each of the fabulous blogs in this hop and leave each of them a comment letting them know what you like best about their projects.  You will have until 10 pm Sunday to finish the hop and leave your comments.  Winners will be announced on Wednesday 12/13/17 at Connie Can Crop.

Be sure to follow everyone and leave a comment on the way!

In his wonderful reindeer sleigh,
Santa would whisk us all away;
Flying merrily,

Nonstop to the NORTH POLE!!

Of course, the North Pole has a Christmas Tree!  So my first card showcases a tree that sparkles and shines:

And the North Pole has a snowman.  I know because every year I watch the animated show, “Frosty the Snowman”.  Even as I type this, I can hear Burl Ives singing.  So here’s my version of Frosty:

Finally, what says the North Pole more than Santa’s sleigh (other than Santa, of course).  Here’s a sleigh piled high with presents and a cute little bear holding a wreath.

I guess you can tell I did a little shopping for pop-up dies.  These are all Karen Burniston dies.  I love that she has video tutorials for all her dies, as a result, there’s no guesswork involved in the making of these.

Now head on over to Santa’s next helper, Ashley, to see what she’s made for you in her workshop.

I also entered one or more cards in the following challenge:







Here’s our line up in case you get lost along the way.
