Holiday Havoc 2011 Blog Hop

Welcome to Craft Your Passion Challenges "Holiday Havoc 2011" Blog Hop!!
We are very excited about holidays and wanted to add to the chaos and havoc. 
What better way to do that, than to have a BLOG HOP!!!

If you have hopped over from Jenn's, then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by and would like to join our hop from the beginning, please go to Craft Your Passion Challenges and follow along for a chance to win some AMAZING blog candy along the way and PRIZES at the end.

All Craft Your Passion DT members are going to be playing along in the hop with some very special guest designers.
Each designer along the way is featuring a project that showcases a digital image from at least one of our amazing Blog Hop Sponsors.
What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at Craft Your Passion Challenges for a chance to win one of several prizes.

But, there’s a twist. Be sure to visit all the stops and leave a comment (we will be checking). Once you have finished the hop, we would like you to create a HOLIDAY project using at least one digital stamp and enter it with our Linky tool.

While you are hopping, be sure to check out the blog candy the designer's have to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!

 For my projects I decided to alter a couple of ornaments from my local dollar store.

 Need Banners?
For this ornament I used the adorable "Santas Cute Helper" from The Paper Shelter.

For this ornament I used stickles all around the image. I added some bling I had from my stash in red and green. I then added a poinsettia. Added some red stickles on the petals and a green gem in the center. 

 For my second ornament I used an adorable image from another of our wonderful sponsors Bugaboo. The image I used is "Little Penguin Winter". 
The image is colored with my Copics. I added some liquid applique to the image to make the snow pop and a touch of stickles over that. The poinsettia I purchased from my dollar store and was originally gold . I used some alcohol ink and a blue glitter embossing powder to change the color of it. The leaf was from Micheals. The Blue pearls I colored with my copic markers to match the blue of the flower and the purple gems were from my stash.  

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all enjoy the blog hop. I wish you all a wonderful weekend. 

Next stop is Christine's blog, to see what she has in store for you today.

Remember, once you have hopped to all the stops and left your comments (we will be checking), it's your turn to show us your "Holiday Havoc" project.

Make sure to include a digital stamp somewhere on your project, and link up your project over at Craft Your Passion Challenges by Midnight CST December 23 to be eligible for the prizes. Winners will be announced on our Monday, December 26th Challenge post.

Happy Birthday

Good Morning Bloggers!
Sunday is my step moms birthday and I wanted to get a card made and in the mail before her birthday. I have a horrible habit of mailing things at the last min. 

I have made an easel card. Its the second one I have ever made and I like the way this one turned out  much better than my first. 

I cut the base out with my Cricut "StoryBook" cart. 
This adorable image is a digital stamp from Wee Stamps called "Sweet Blossom" and I have colored it using my Copics. 
The papers I have had for a couple of years and just couldnt bring myself  to use them. They are Chatter Box Scrapbook papers "Violet Parlor Paisley", "Light Parlor Plaid", and "Light Parlor Stripe". 
 The flowers I used on this card are "Recollections" from Michaels.  
The die cut on the base of the card is Spellbinders "Fancy Tag"  and the sentiment is from Inkadinkado "All Occasions" stamp set. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week.
