Inspired by "Go to Gal" Blog Hop!!!

Happy Monday!!!

I have to say one of my E.A.D Designs features is the "Go to Gal" Blog Hop!!!
{it officially starts at 10 am EST}

You should have hopped here from our wonderful December Guest Designer:


If not, you'll definitely want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the E.A.D Designs blog!

I'm thrilled to tell you that this month we have the spectacular Betsy Veldman joining us!!!!


I'm a HUGE fan of her gorgeous work...her attention to detail and her choices of colors are a-m-a-z-i-n-g...check out this Betsy beauty:
 

I was inspired by her overall design but rotated my card....:


I used the E.A.D Designs Merry n Bright/Color Stickerz as my focal point....it may look like an eggplant color but it really is a charcoal grey....I added pearls to the centers of 2 of the snowflakes for dimension.  The ric rac is velvet and the snowflakes are a sneak peek of a new Skipping Stones set that I inked up with PTI's Fresh Snow.

Here's another Betsy inspiration...isn't it gorgeous?  I love her use of patterned paper and collage-y style...


Here's my version...a hip shabby chic with the bold red flocked Making Memories paper....


What?  A non-holiday card?!  LOL...such a refreshing switch for me...I'm linking this to the Moxie Fab World All Occasion Challenge...

I've been LOVING the Saying Hello Sentiments Stickerz set...soooo versatile and fun...the blue brocade paper is flocked Making Memories, the bloom is Prima and a big woot woot for me...I finally cracked open my Lacey Circles Nesties and man, oh man...you guys are going to be seeing those puppies a ton...I even did some fun whimsical stitching on today's version:)

Thanks to Betsy for all the inspiration that she provides and for getting me to use my nesties:)

Okay, now hop on over to the fabbie Jenn of
