CHF Grand Re-Opening Blog Hop

Hello!!!  Welcome to the CHF Grand Re-Opening celebration!  It's great to be reunited with my former design team members and joined by new ones!

Cornish Heritage Farms is back with a new owner and a new site.  You can find CHF on Facebook HERE which has a sneak peek album of projects by the designers.

We will be randomly giving 8 certificates to commenters on our hop.  Here's how to enter:

Visit each of the blog hop sites, which are listed below.  Leave a comment on each site before you hop to the next site.  Each DT member will randomly draw a name from the comments.  Comments close 24 hours after the hop.  You have 8 different chances of winning!

Great information about Cornish Heritage Farms that you should know was shared by Tanya in the last CHF newsletter:

A HUGE Inventory! - You will find over 500 images on the new Cornish Heritage Farms website! We have hundreds of Christmas and holiday images, as well as animals, family, by the seashore and so many more!

Reward Points - Every dollar you spend gets you a reward point. Collect 200 points and you get $10 to spend on the website!

Great Images - Great Prices! NOTHING on our site is over $2.99 including the amazing Mushroom Lane stamps! Most images are just $1.99!

A .99 Cent Bin! ? Over 125 images are just .99 each.

And coming soon...... We are going to have video tutorials on how to download and use your digital images. We will have a brand new rubber section where you can purchase some of your old favorites like Thomas Kinkade, The Rummage Bin and all the wonderful backgrounders. AND - tutorials.
 
So with all the business out of the way, here's my project...

Christmas Poinsettia

I printed the poinsettia image twice.  I colored the flower separately and layered onto the main panel for extra dimension.  Here's a view of the image from the side:


I also added lots of little details to the colored image.  I added some silver paint pen to the bells, gold paint pen to the center of the flower and glitter on the pine boughs (like ice).


I hope you'll continue on the hop to the rest of the designers contributing today!  I'm certain you'll be inspired!

Jean Franks Beck is next on the hop, but if you've landed on my blog directly and would like to see the full list of contributors, it's below.
