Happy Blogiversary!

Hello!  Welcome to the next stop on the Crafty Gals Corner blogiversary blog hop!  You should have come here from Lisa's blog.  I am sure she had some wonderful inspiration for you.  If you didn't get here from Lisa's blog, head over the Crafty Gals Corner so you can start at the beginning and see all of the gorgeous projects my teamies have whipped up for you.  We have another anything goes challenge, so very easy to play along again this week.

For my project I used Aurora - The Best Gift Ever from The East Wind.  Aurora and her kitty were colored with Copic markers.  The background paper is a gorgeous freebie from the Winter Frost pack that was available in the Art by Miran Facebook group.  Tracy Wray makes some beautiful papers and they offer them for free!

The heart snowflake is a Silhouette cut file.  I wanted something wintery and this snowflake (technically a doily =P) was the perfect complement for this image.

As you probably already know, we are celebrating the one-year blogiversary of the Crafty Gals corner, so to celebrate we have EIGHT (yes you read that right, 8!) wonderful sponsors who have agreed to help us celebrate. In addition, some of these wonderful ladies are ALSO offering prizes on their personal blogs. So be sure to hop, hop, hop for MANY chances to receive a prize. We do hope you have had a wonderful holiday with your friends and loved ones, and best of luck to you all in the New Year! Thank you for linking up with Crafty Gals Corner and we hope to see you again soon!

Please follow the blog hop schedule below and if you get lost, just hop on back here :)
