It Is Time to Hop

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is Create Your Own Background. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Why not keep it simple? We are all busy this time of year.  I created a simple background by stamping the trees from Beauty of Friendship.  After all, the wolves hang out in the forest.

Next, it is simple to stamp the wolf from the Wildlife Wonder stamp set.  This set is so perfect with the choices of bear and owl. To set the wolf off I colored the background with a variety of colors using my Blend Brushes.
