Snowflakes and Mittens Banner

I'm very excited to announce that I've been ask to 
take over the Crop Stop blog as 
designer and promoter of Crop Stop products!
Today is my first post and though I'm a little nervous
(Karen's beautiful work leaves big shoes to fill!)
I'm also thrilled with the opportunity and challenge!
 I'm sharing a winter banner I made
that's reminiscent of the cold and snowy
January days I remember as a child growing up in the north.
Stop by and check out the mini tutorial I shared for making these
tiny pom poms over on the CropStop blog.
While you're there, link up one of your projects to the current challenge
and then hop over and browse the products in the CropStop store.
