Busy Beauties Boutique Blog Hop of New Releases

They're here!! More Busy Beauties digistamps! There are so many surprises in store for you when you take a hop through our blogs. Don't forget to visit the Busy Beauties Boutique for the full selection of images. You'll especially want to do this if you are a winner!

"Winner, did you say?"

YES! In fact, winners, plural! Here's the scoop: there will be a winner chosen from comments left on each of our 10 blog hop posts. Those winners will be able to choose one image from the BBBoutique. A GRAND PRIZE winner will be selected to win 3 images of their choice, but, to qualify for the Grand Prize, commenters must leave a little love on each of the blogs in the hop.

Now, let's get on with the hop!! I hope you started with a visit to lovely Grace's blog and if you followed along, you should have arrived here from our Danish Beauty Annita's blog. If you missed any you'll want to go back to see the fabulous creations, and be sure to leave comments to be eligible for the drawings!


Just in time for Christmas are the adorable Gingerbread Boy and Girl. I took two of each and colored them with Copics. Each is sprinkled with a bit of Twinklets Diamond Dust. (Who doesn't like a little extra sugar on their gingerbread?) The boys are decked out in little hat buttons, one a stocking cap, the other a Santa hat. These were in a bag of a couple hundred (really!) holiday embellies and buttons I picked up at Michael's. Mounted on Kraft paper from PaperTrey I edged all sides with red ink. The red buttons are from the bag of embellies. I found this so, so satiny rick rack at the Amana General Store in Amana, Iowa. I always find lots of fun surprises there!


Now that I am craving a gingerbread latte, I will stop here and point you to your next stop. I have the great pleasure to direct you to our Beauty-In-Chief Carolyn for your next visit.

If you missed any of the other Beauties blogs along the way, here they are in order:

Thank you so much for hopping along with us! Good luck in the drawings and have fun with the images. We sure did!
