Lawnscaping Blog Hop: All About Red

For the Wee Memories challenge post, please scroll down.

Welcome! Welcome to the second Lawnscaping Blog Hop!!!!! I am first up on the hop! If you get lost along the way, no problem! Just head on back to the Lawnscaping Home Page and see the complete list of hop participants!

The hop is sponsored by three fabulous sponsors:  Lawn Fawn, Mold Muse and Whisker Graphics!!!!! One prize will go to a random hop participant and three will go to random hop commenters, so be sure to leave a comment on all the hop participants posts! The more comments you leave, the more chances you have of winning.

The theme  for the hop is RED! I love RED! I have been on a Christmas roller coaster lately, so I decided to keep the ride going.

I made a ribbon tree accompanied by a card to match! First up is the tree. I bought a styrofoam cone, lots of red ribbon and push pins from my local craft store (Michael’s). I topped it off with a jingle bell!

Next up is the card! I took some fun patterned paper from Echo Park and paired it with the adorable reindeer from Lawn Fawn. The reindeer was colored with distress stains.

I had to add some Liquid Pearls to the nose! What’s Christmas without Rudolph?  I also added some white touches to the tale and rump of the reindeer! The snow is my new love, Picket Fence Stickles. I have a complete supply list below!

Next up on the hop is the fabulous Mrs. Lawn Fawn

herself, Kelly Marie Alvarez!

Thanks for stopping by!!!!!! 🙂
