TLC Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Welcome to the TLC Winter Wonderland Blog Hop!!!

Our hop today starts over at the TLC Blog!  It's there you will find a list of all our blog stops as well as get you started on our journey with us!

Hopefully you're enjoying all the inspiration from the DT and all the fabulous freebies from Paulette so far!

For my creation, I was given this vintage image to play with called Dressed For Snow and fell in love with it the moment I saw it! 

Isn't it just fabulous?! I remember wanting one of those muffs soooo bad as a little girl...ok, I still want one of those muffs... who am I kidding, lol.  And talking about fabulous - how fabulous is Paulette for allowing me to give this image to you today?! 

The blue vintage paper behind the image is a TLC digi paper that Paulette offered on her blog quite awhile back as a freebie.  And those are not the only bits of TLC on my card today - the beautiful vintage Christmas sentiment was one of the goodies in the TLC Christmas Club!

As promised, here is Paulette's little gift to you.  To grab yours, just double click the image to enlarge it; then right click and save it!!
Your next stop along the hop is Jennifer, and she has something incredible in store for you!

Happy Hopping!!
