Saturday Spotlight - Hats On!


Good Morning everyone, I hope you guys all enjoyed your Holiday and survived Black Friday if you were out shopping!!! LOL I usually do all my shopping the first two weeks of December. My kids change their minds so much with all the commercials I tend to wait and avoid the crowds!! I spent yesterday just hanging out with the family and catching up on some rest!!!

Well.....today is another fun Spotlight Saturday Challenge. This weeks challenge is Hats On:

Do you have images with hats, hat embellishments or charms? Hat stamps or background paper? A sweet critter that is begging for a fun hat to wear? Use those HATS! If you participate this week you will be entered to win some fun blog candy. Come check out the post here and come on over and play along.


For my card this week I just couldn't pass up this fun image from Stampin Up. This set is called Holiday Lineup. Look at those sweet elves in all their hats!!! I just LOVE this set!!!! I wanted to show you a close up too of the liquid pearls I added to the balls of their hats. I just love this stuff, it dries really quick and very easy to apply!!!!! If you have never tried it, you might want to check it out!!!! Hope you enjoy my card and thanks so much for stopping by.......Have a great Saturday Everyone!!
