Winter Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!!

We are so glad that you are joining 3 Girl JAM and our friends at Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons for our Winter Blog Hop!  
You should have made it here from Gloria's Blog.  If you just happened to stop by, make sure to start at PPPR so you don't miss out on any of the fun!

Winter is not my favorite season.  In Iowa it is cold and snows ALOT!
The snow however is very pretty somedays- and the cold is a great excuse to stay inside and snuggle up and watch movies- or better yet- Craft!

We've had lots of snow lately- so when I saw the PPPR Heart Balloon and the Winter Wonderland files I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

 It's a Snowflake Hot Air Balloon to take me to somewhere warm!
I also used some 3Girl JAM Sterling Crinkle Ribbon and some NEW Hand Dyed Lace (that will be in the store very soon)!

I've also been really sick lately.  I am feeling much better now- but I went through a lot of tissues last week!

PPPR Get Well Cut File, 3GJ 5"x7" Cotton Bag

I made this so I can give it to the next person I know that gets sick.
Something to brighten their day!

Now-- to brighten your day:

We are offering a $20.00 3 Girl JAM Gift Certificate to one lucky person.
Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons is giving away a $20.00 gift certificate to their store too!
Just make sure to comment on everyone's stop along the Hop!
For extra entries- make sure to stop by our Facebook Page and the Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons Facebook Page.  "Like" us both and leave us some love on our walls.

You've reached the end of the Hop.  Thank you for spending a little bit of your day with us.
