My Christmas Card Stash is Low Blog Hop

Hello Everyone.  It's great to work on Christmas cards all year long so when the joyous season arrives, I have most of my Chirtmas card done and ready to send out. 

When Sarah was talking about this hop, I jumped right in.  You should have arrived from Carla's .  If you found your way here in the middle of the hop start back at the beginning

There will be 2 blog candies for this hop.

First, There will be a stash prize given out randomly to 1 comment from all the blogs. You MUST comment on all the blogs!! You will have until Tuesday the 30th at 11:59pm CST to comment. Sarah will announce the winner on Wednesday morning.

The second prize will have a little more work for you to enter. We're going to have a little challenge for you to enter. 1st you will need to stop and comment on every blog. 2nd you will need to create a holiday card/gift tag/general gift giving paraphernalia and enter it at the inlinkz on Sarah's blog. You have a week to enter and you can enter up to 3 projects. The prize for this challenge is a stamp set and crinkle ribbon bundle of YOUR CHOICE from our sponsor Mae Sunshine Designs!

So now on to my Christmas Card.  I don't know why, but everytime I color the hobbie girl I used pink and blues for her bonnet and dress.  I wanted the girl to be sitting on an ornament, but I didn't want to pull out an electronic cutting machine.   I found a dollie on my table and sponged it with evergreen ink.  Then I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Forest Green Sparkle mist. 

I used this great Basic Grey background paper that pulled all of my colors together.  It also reminded me of a Christmas Sweater.    In the picture, you can't see the three little heart rinestones that are in the bottom corner. 

Here's a look at the inside.

Your next stop is Maria's blog.

Remember to stop by and leave a little blog love at each stop along the way to be eligable for blog candy. 

If you get sidetracked along the way, here's a complete list of stops.

Very nice, I ended up going back to my smaller Cricut for little cuts because I didn't want to drag out the big one, so I totally know what you mean. TFS!

This is a darling card. I love the background paper - it DOES look like a sweater. The little girl is so cute. Reminds me of the old Sunbonnet Sue quilting pattern. Your coloring is very well done.
