Secret Sweetie Blog Hop...

A hug is the perfect gift--one size fits all, and nobody minds if you exchange it.-Ivern Ball
Welcome to a very Sweetie Christmas Hop! The Hope Stamps Eternal Sweeties have a big reveal to share with you today. A few weeks back we were each assigned a secret sweetie who in turn made us gifts and sent them to us to ring in the holidays. During this hop you will see what each of the sweeties put together for their recipient and reveal who they made it for.

Make sure to comment on each blog because one lucky person will be the winner of some yummy blog candy! Start here and then follow the hop to the next blog, commenting along the way to make sure you get as many chances as possible for the Sweets!! I'll pick a random winner Tuesday at 9 pm!

I put this package together for Natalie, I hope she liked it!!

I decorated a super fun scalloped edge box by Provo Craft, I used Jolly by Golly Paper (sponged
with Old Paper Distress Ink) and Chipboard. I stickled the holly and added a little Zva swirl, then stamped a little Merry Christmas sentiment on the top. Finished off with some ribbon and filled it up with some goodies! (I can't remember Everything I threw in, but I tried to keep it all Green, Red or Pink. There was some Zva Flowers, a Clear Stamp Set, a pad of Christmas Post-its and some Crystal Snowflakes.)

As I was making this box I really had last week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge on my mind, but had to wait to show you today, LOL...it does work for this week's Pink Elephant Challenge (Winter or Christmas Theme) and Pile it On's Chipboard Challenge.

Next up, hop on over to see Teresa and see what she created for her Sweetie!
