Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Deck the Halls Blog Hop

YAY! It's Saturday! That means that it's time for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Deck the Halls Blog Hop. My Design Team friends and I are sharing all sorts of Christmas themed projects that will be perfect to get you in the holiday mood!  We have a prize up for grabs and a little freebie just for you guys. We'll also be kicking off our next challenge. So, be sure to check out each and every project along the way don't want to miss a THING!  If you are here from the blog of the awesome and talented Ruth you are in the right place!! 

For my project, I decided to create a lighted glass block to highlight some vinyl and snowflakes-- I think I like my glass block better without the lights--but the lights just add so much :) Hmmm maybe I need to find a set of white lights for it vs. the blue?!?!?  So tough to decide!  Not too mention a MUCH smaller set of lights... I think this was a set of 70 jammed in there!

Here is the fabulous file I used:

Hello friends! Happy Wednesday! Today is my design day at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons!   I hope today finds you all well and having a great day.  I have a cute little project to share with you all today.  I kinda love how this little cutie turned out and can definitely be altered to use for gift giving this holiday season--but I just wasn't feel red so pulled out this card stock instead.  I added a little tag that says "Enjoy" definitely perfect for placing an enjoyable treat inside.
