Deedee's Digis Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone, My first of two posting today, the DSC Challengewill be posted at 2pm.

Happy December! It's a brand new month, and what better way to celebrate than with a blog hop?!? This hop is a little different than our usual. This month we are proudly sponsoring the quarterly blog hop at the House of Cards challenge blog, where all of their hop creations are centered around this lovely inspiration photo.

If you participate in their hop, you could win one of several prizes from a variety of sponsors. But we thought, why not make it a true PARTY and offer you a TANDEM HOP?!?

So here's how OUR hop works:
  • Based on the same inspiration photo, some of our designers have created projects to inspire you.
  • You have until 11:55 PM Pacific Time this Saturday, December 5, to visit our participating designers' blogs and leave them some love.
  • At the end of our hop, each participating designer will choose a winner from the comments left on their hop post, and each winner will receive one digi set of their choice from our shop.
  • All winners will be announced here on Monday, December 7th.
Sound like fun? But wait -- there's more!!! When you've completed the hop, be sure to stop back here and leave a comment to tell us so. Those who do will be entered to win our grand prize of a $15 gift code to the shop.

Last but not least, no Deedee's Digis blog hop would be complete without a FREEBIE to kick it off. Our new "Gift of Love" digi set is available to download for FREE in the "Try Before You Buy" area of our shop through December 6.

Wow -- that's a lot of FUN! Now let's get going! Here are the designers to visit. Happy hopping! :-)

Anyhow on to my creation. I followed the inspiration picture to make an unusual colour way Christmas card and I am quite liking it. I used the outline image candle from Deedee's Digis "Open Window" I laid it out and coloured it in Photoshop, printed it out and decided to scrape the edges of one of the layers. After layering the candle and it's papers I sewed around the edge, (just wish my little sewing machine was a better stitcher!) I added glitter glue around the candlelight and the snowflakes.

  2. This is just beautiful Faith! I love the soft colors and image in triplicate! The stitching adds that perfect homespun look to finish this elegantly.
