Jane's Doodles: Winter Wishes New Release Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to Jane's Doodles new release blog hop where we are featuring Winter Wishes! You should have just arrived from Milka's blog - if not, just scroll down for a full list of everyone participating today. We have two new Design Team members as well as one very special guest!

I just adore the critters in this stamp set and had to use as many as I could fit on one card! I couldn't hold back any longer and added Brusho Watercolors to my ever growing watercolor medium collection and have been itching to try them so I thought I would give them a try on a background today. I had a few bumps along the way as I created this card but I pushed on and I'm so glad I did because even though the end result wasn't what I originally had in mind, it is absolutely adorable. The process from what we envision when we sit down to create to what actually comes to life is a journey. I hope you will join me in my studio to see how this card came together today:


When the post first went live, I forgot to mention our giveaway!!!
