Welcome to the Candy Hearts Blog Hop for November! Today we are sharing Holiday projects. I used the Stockings Dies to make a hobby horse. I remember having one of these when I was very little. It had jingle bells on it. I usually played with it outside, because inside I had my rocking horse. It was on a metal stand with springs, so it didn’t rock so much as it bounced. I would get going so fast that it would scoot across the room. After reading my post, I hope you will hop to the next person on the list below. Be sure to hop around to see ALL the great projects the Candy Hearts have created for you!
