Welcome! Come and play!



I have been looking forward to this post for months!

A while back Danielle from Neat and Tangled invited me to be part of the Design Team for the new Challenge associated with Neat and Tangled Stamps, Little Tangles. 

You all know that I love participating in challenges so of course I jumped at the opportunity.

Little Tangles will be a bi-monthly challenge - with new challenges on the first and third Thursdays of the month.  Our first official challenge will be November 15th.  If you don't have any Neat and Tangled stamps yet, Danielle is offering a free digital stamp over at Neat and Tangled, and of course there will be prizes!

To kick-off Little Tangles, we're celebrating with a hop with the Neat and Tangled DT.  You should have arrived here from Suzanne's blog.



I wanted to use the little house from the Sweet Home set.  I stamped it twice on kraft and pieced the third house using MME The Sweetest Thing 6x6 papers.

The kraft houses were fussy cut, and then I ran all three houses through my Xyron 5" Creative Station so they were super simple to adhere once I had drawn the 'ground' line. 



The sentiment is actually from a Walzingmouse set, but it was too perfect to not use, because I really do want you to come and play with us at Little Tangles.

We've got a great set of challenges lined up, a great team, and of course GREAT stamps.  Please plan to join us for our first challenge on the 15th! 

Your next stop is Jean, I know she's going to have a great project to share!

You definitely want to make your way through the whole hop because Danielle is offering up two prize packs!  Comments must be received by Sunday, Nov. 4th at 11:59pm EST to be eligible for the prizes.  In case you get lost, here's the full hop list:
