First -Ever Gingersnap Creations Blog Hop

Welcome to the first-ever Gingersnap Creations Blog Hop and Hop Stop #9!

My card features the beautiful Christmas stamps from Hearts In Touch Christmas plate 2009. The technique is from TJ the new Herringbone technique from the Dec/Jan issue. A great way to use up scraps! I gold embossed the tree image and added a few layers from my Spellbinders die cut. A little ribbon and its ready to go!

My second piece is a little notebook that features an Angel and text from the same Christmas 2009 set.I sponged broken china ink over the stamped image. Added some lace and some ribbon and now I have a sweet little gift ready for Christmas.

If you’ve already been hopping then hopefully you have just come from Laura at As Happy As Doesn't Laura do beautiful work!
If you are starting here, welcome! It's a loop so you can start anywhere along the way!
At each stop, you need to collect a word! There are 10 stops in all starting and ending with the Gingersnap Creations blog where you can get all the specific information and get a peak at the Christmas 2009 plate fromHearts in Touch.

When you get all your words, 9 in all, unscramble them to form an art quote. Once you have your guess at the quote, email it and your name to by December 13, 2009. We will be picking one lucky winner at random from the correct entries to win the Hearts in Touch Christmas 2009 plate!

My word is "is".

Your next stop on the hop is Sharon at Ill Tempered Ink Sharon is an amazing artist and I know she has something special to share!
Good luck!
Happy Holidays!
