Top Dog Dies DT Blog Hop!



Hello friends!  Welcome to the Top Dog Dies DT Blog Hop!  So excited to kick off this DT with a hop.  All the fabulous products and creations my teamies made! :)  You should have  come here from Karen Letchworth's blog.

Here is my project for the hop.  It was inspired by a few things: first was this wrapping paper with the gold hearts, LOVE!  Second, was a Donna Mikasa creation and third was the Heart Doily Die from Top Dog Dies.  Love this die and have been using it non-stop recently, I simply can't get enough of it!  The gold glitter paper takes it to a whole new level.  I finished it off with a a Christmas sentiment from CAS-ual Friday Stamps and a gold arrow from Freckled Fawn.

Now onto the prizes!  One random person will win the Top Dog Dies Heart Mini Album and Heart Mini Album Finishers Set (Valued at $42)!  Um, can I win this?! ;)  Whoever gets this will have the perfect set up for a post-valentine album to capture their memories.   To be eligible to win you have to comment on the TDD post and sign up via rafflecopter.  You should also be sure to leave the DT some love along the hop.   

Without further adeau, the next stop is at Nicole Picadura.  Below is the whole list just in case you need it.   Thank you so much for stopping!  I hope you enjoy the hop!

Katie, how elegant!! You've taken your various sources of inspiration, infused them with your own flair and style, and created a card that is absolutely stunning! Such a beautiful showcase of the TD dies; I certainly see why it receives non-stop use! WOW! I'm off to enter the give-away - and thank you so much for sharing this with us!
