Off to Grammas for the Holidays Blog Hop with Create with TLC

It's off to Grammas for the Holidays with Create with TLC Blog Hop. This is a great hop with a freebie courtesy of Paulette from Create with TLC on each of the stops along the way: 

Here's my holiday story and I'm sticking to it . . . over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go . . . . .



RECIPE and SUPPLIES:
  • black/white card stock is from a Christmas collection I had gotten last year after Christmas by Recollections cut to a size A2 card
  • Recollections Black/White paper is the background for my card
  • Create with TLC Journey to Relatives for Holidays Vintage was colored with Whisper Stroke Markers, Prisma Markers, Spectrum Noir Markers, gel accents and chalked around the edges
  • Victorian House was cut using Cricut Heritage Cartridge at 3.5 inches using scraps and chalked around the edges
  • Queen & Co. pearls were added to the wheels with square gems set at a jaunty angel on the right edge
  • Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch was used with the matching scraps from the Victorian House for the right edge
  • sentiment, "Every holiday journey can be categorized as either a good time, or a Good Story", is also from Create with TLC which was chalked and faux-stitched around the edges and mounted on scraps to match the front of my card 


 
Oh, if we only had the time there would be stories to tell about holidays experience. Hope you take a moment and share yours.

Here is my freebie for you - just right click and save - don't forget to thank Paulette at Create with TLC.
