Seasons Givings Blog Hop!

So, today I am a part of a REALLY cool blog hop, called the Seasons Givings Blog Hop! This is the 3rd year that this special hop has been running and I'm certain it won't be the last! What an amazing tradition! Thanks to Latisha Yoast for all of her hard work in getting this hop up and running! You are going to have the opportunity to win all kinds of generous prizes from some of the best paper crafters and companies in the business! All you have to do is comment to win! Below I'll have a complete list of the stampers and businesses participating.
The theory of this idea is pretty simple- Most of us have an abundance of products to share, and what better way to get rid of it, than to give it to someone else that would appreciate having something new come to them! Tis the season for giving, after all! So to my readers that visit regularly, thank you so much for coming and spending your time on my blog! Thank you for your lovely comments- I truly look forward to reading them, and each and every one is special to me :) For those of who are joining me for the first time today, WELCOME! I hope you see something you like in my work and continue to come back to pay me a visit!
I have been stamping for probably about 7 years. It all started with a Stampin' Up! party (I know- sooooo original ;) ), and from there I became a demonstrator for about 5 years. I have had the privilege to design for some pretty spectacular companies, including My Favorite Things, Your Next Stamp, The Cat's Pajamas, and Tiddly Inks. I currently design for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, and SugarPea Designs, Perfect Paper Crafting and am on the current Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge team. This industry is such a great group to be a part of- I've met some of the most amazing people during my DT stints and am even able to call some of them close friends! Without stamping and colouring, I might have never met some of the greatest girls I know!!! I'll always be thankful for that :) 
A bit about me: I have 3 super cool little boys, a hubby that is not half bad, 2 naughty pooches- Stella and Ruby, and I live in Alberta, Canada on a chunk of Heaven, in the middle of nowhere! I used to work as a Registered Nurse, but because my hubs works away A LOT, we decided maybe the kids should have one parent that's at home, so that's currently where I am!

I wanted to give you a recap of my favourite cards from this year, as a last hurrah to 2014! So sit back, crack a beer, or if you are fancier than me, maybe some champagne, or if it's too early for an adult bevy, maybe just a Timmie's (if you are Canadian, you'll know what I mean!)
