Visions of Sugar Plums Day Four: Merry Little Jumping Deer Ornament GIVEAWAY

If you didn't get a chance to check out my post on Tuesday, let me tell you what I'm up to. 

I'm part of a hop for Visions of Sugar Plums or VOSP. I've been part of this for a few years. Last year I altered a tea set & gave away an altered skate. The year before I altered a clock and gave away a little altered set of drawers. Today I'm back with a giveaway! It's a fun way to start off the holiday season with a bit of an eye candy blog hop & some stuff to win! I will be hooking you up with the participants at the end of this post!

This little red sparkly lantern was in the scratch and dent section at a local box store for a whole dollar. Parts of the red glitter was chipping off, the inside lantern part was empty and it basically begged for my help. 

I added gold spray paint to various corners for a cool double sparkle, snow to the edges, a little green misted Tim Holtz tree, some mica flakes to the bottom, & a prancing reindeer covered in liquid glass! The application of the liquid glass made my little die cut curl a bit and it makes me think he's dancing a Merry Little Reindeer Dance!

Of course I had to add a Merry badge to the top of my red glitter snowflake!

Just comment on this post to win! If I pull your name, I'll pop this into the mail right off so you'll get some happy mail! 

To participate in the shop giveaways and ChouxChoux Paper Art giveaways, you will need to comment on Lori's blog letting her know you want to win. 

She will add your name to the "hat."  You also get your name added for every comment you leave on the participating blogs.
