Handmade Holiday Blog Hop!



Welcome crafty friends!  This has been a fabulous hop and I am sad that it is the last day. We truly have been inspired.  I am representing Authentique.  I love the quality product Authentique puts out, it is perfect for my crafty needs. 

I want to share with you a burlap banner I made adorned with Authentique.











Fun right?  I am excited to have this hanging in my crafty room as part of my holiday decor. For this project I used:
Festive Collection: Merry #FES006, Believe #FES003, Yuletide #FES005, Jolly #FES007 and Details #FES007
Peaceful Collection: Freeze #FRE001 and Chill #FRE004
Wonder Collection: Excerpts #DW0006

So, you wanna win some prizes?  Authentique will be giving away 4 6x6 paper pads of their latest and greatest...Lovely, Original, Peaceful and Festive!  Make sure you are leaving comments here as well as on the Authentique Blog.  


Now...move on, it's time to get some more inspiration.  Head on over to Jessica Fick's Blog!  There is a list of the participating blogs below in case you get lost.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Holidays!
