A VERY Merry Blog Hop...with Die Cuts R Us!

Hey everyone!

A VERY Merry Christmas Eve to all of you!


We have a special celebration to kick off all of the fun this weekend will bring and put YOU in the holiday spirit....our VERY FIRST Blog Hop at Die Cuts R Us!

If you are just getting to my blog, be sure to back up and start at the beginning, on the DCRU DT Blog.   Starting from there, each of our wonderfully sweet and talented DT members has a KEY WORD for you today.  They'll be scrambled, but eventually you'll see that they have a special message for you to figure out!




Remember to comment on the blogs and gather all the "key words" from the DT blogs! You will get to unscramble them at the end of the hop and email the "phrase" you come up with for a chance to win a prize from DCRU!

There are so many items on my Christmas Wish List from Die Cuts R Us!    This is especially true now that Claudia has PRISM CARD STOCK in the store!  I LOVE it-it's my favorite cardstock and I was THRILLED when she said she was going to have it at the store!   I used it on my card today in Rose Medium and Frosted Teal, one of my FAVE color combos!

I made this card JUST for this hop using Sketch #6 from The Greeting Farm's 12 Days of Sketches, and couldn't have done it without my fave Nestabilities which are also available in the DCRU Store for the fab price-lower than most stores I've seen!   Seriously, all the DCRU prices are so good, Santa should be relieved that I'm going easy on his wallet....sorta ;)

Now, for my Key Word!!! (Be sure and write these down!!) THE

Off you go to the next stop on this Holiday Blog Hop! The talented and super sweet CARA!

Oh, and as an EXTRA Christmas present?  Our good friend and AMAZING DT Coordie Sammye Jo has a TRAVEL ANYA to give away on her blog!   Make sure you check it out!!!

Have a wonderful Christmas, everyone!  I'll be back on Saturday but in the meantime, enjoy the magic.   I am so blessed to know all of you blog friends and I wish you all the joy, peace, and wonder of the Season.  I love you all!

Oh, Jessica, you did it again. This little card is a real show stopper. Those bright vivid colors and the "Alice" digi are just amazing. I love the tiny additions of color to her hair. Very cute! I hope the coming year brings you tons of new adventures (including the adventures of Alice in Wonderland on March 5th...tehehe).

Smiles!
Gwen

I love her red flips of color. My son colored one of my digi's the other day and made her hair pink and black (same as mine) and then showed me "See mom her hair is like yours:)" Hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
