A Blog Hop with LOTS of Blog Candy - W@@T, W@@T

It's TLT day and this time we're celebrating "Winter Wonderland" as chosen by Jovita, our Guest Designer!

Don't forget, each Design Team member is giving away Blog Candy to one random person - leave some love along the way for your chance to win!  AND don't forget to join our Winter Wonderland challenge for a 2nd chance to win.  Here's a picture of my blog candy:

Now let's cover the rules and move on to the fun stuff:

  1. The blog hop begins at:  Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog (HERE).
  2. You should have arrived at my blog from Jovita's blog.
  3. Next stop on the hop is Lisa's blog.
  4. If you have a blog, please grab the banner and post it on your blog.  
  5. If you DO NOT have a blog, don't worry, you can still enter by e-mailing your Winter Wonderland entry to:  lcichallengeblog@aol.com.
And the last bit of housekeeping is my question for the blog hop:

"It's snowing, let's go outside and make Snow _______!"  Now remember, you need the first letter of each answer to form a Christmas word - once you have that word, e-mail it to:  lcichallengeblog@aol.com.

OK, now on to my creation for my Secret Pal.  Each year I sign up to have a secret pal our our elementary school; my secret pal requested Double Bubble gum which she gives to the children for completing various reading assignments, so I made her a fun little Winter Wonderland Bubblegum Holder.  :D

I hope she likes it!  I used Nikki &; Buttercup Snow Angels (minus Buttercup - umm....DON'T TELL MY BOSS I omitted Buttercup) - always a GREAT Winter Wonderland image!  I colored the image with Copics &; used Fluffy Stuff for the snow.  I have to say, my sweet, dear hubby helped me cover the Stampendous Plastic Pail - he's great at precision and detail and getting the "perfect" fit around those handles!

Thanks for hopping along with us today; hope you enjoy the eye candy and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win my Blog Candy!

Hugs, ~M.
