I used Nikki and Buttercup Building a Snowman for my card this week and colored it using my copics and prismacolor pencils. I embossed my background using the snowflake folder from Cuttlebug's Winter Wonderland embossing set and added stickles and pearls to the snowflakes. I cut mounds of snow and used Glamour Dust and stickles for some sparkle. I used pop dots on my snow mounds to give them some dimension. I don't think the picture really shows how much glitter is on this baby...but believe me, I truly had glitter everywhere lol!
OK, enough about the card. Let's get to the fun ... the Christmas Blog Hop! Since this is the season of goodwill, each DT member will offer a gift for someone to win. That means there are 11 prizes to be won this week, in addition to the regular challenge prize! So, you have two chances to win a prize this week. First, you can enter your card in the Winter Wonderland challenge...and second, you can play along in the hop.
You should have arrived at my blog from Tams' blog. If you didn't, go here to find the order of the blog hop. Make sure that you have our LCI Christmas Blog Hop Banner loaded on your blog. You can copy it from my sidebar if you don't already have it loaded.
As you stop by each blog please leave a comment letting us know you've visited. Each DT member will ask a question. All you have to do is answer the question, taking note of the first letter in your answer. These letters will spell a word. When you've finished the hop, email the word to firstname.lastname@example.org. Here's a little clue...the word is related to Christmas. You can play along even if you don't have a blog.
And, my question is ... what is the color of Santa's suit?
Here is the blog candy I will be giving away. It includes a Cuttlebug embossing folder, a 24-pack of 6x6 Daisy D's papers, two Martha Stewart tinsel glitters, Colorbox metal accents adhesive flowers, and the Hero Arts Sparkle Clear Cupcakes stamps with gems.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have fun on the hop and good luck!
The next blog you want to visit is Pinky.
