Christmas Blog Hop!

Welcome one and all to the One Stitch at a Time Christmas Blog Hop! :)
 
Yes, to celebrate the festive season, instead of our usual weekly challenge, OSAAT is bringing you a great big 3-week Design Team blog hop - each member of the Design Team has posted a Stitchy Bear creation on their blogs and you have 3 whole weeks to follow the hop and visit each of the Design Team blogs, and to create your own project and link it on the Blog Hop post at the OSAAT blog.
 
You should have come here from Josephine's blog but if not and you want to start from the beginning, you can find the full list at the OSAAT blog here.
 
The theme of the challenge is Use a Digi and I was given some gorgeous Christmassy digi papers by Stitchy Stamps to use for my card - I also used a Sylvie's Stamps digi image called Santa Lady 2.
 
 
I chose to make an easel card and decorated it with two of the pretty Christmas-themed papers. I coloured in the digi image with Promarkers and cut her out before mounting her onto the card with foam tape, framing her against a decorative oval accented with gemstones. A layered snowflake finished things off nicely. :)
 
 
 
There are goodies galore to be won in the blog hop - and here's how you can win:
 
1. Follow the blog hop and leave a comment on every blog. Each blog will also have a letter to collect - when you have collected all the letters, email choccy.oona@gmail.com with the answer. Everyone who takes part will get themselves a fabulous Stitchy Bear Stamps freebie digi stamp and one lucky winner will be chosen at random to win ALL the Stitchy Bear stamps/papers used by the Design Team on their blog hop projects.

2. Each member of the Design Team will also be giving away the Stitchy Bear stamp (or papers) that they used for their Blog Hop creation - one winner will be chosen at random from all those who comment.

3. If you enter the OSAAT challenge using a Stitchy Bear digi stamp, you will be entered into the draw to win the entire set of Stitchy Bear images used by the Design Team in the Blog Hop.

4. If you enter the challenge without using a Stitchy Bear image, you will be entered into the draw to win one of the digi images used in the Blog Hop.

Your next stop on the hop is Nataliya's blog. And don't forget to Please Pick uP the Pertinent letter from my blog to be in with a chance of winning the Primo Blog HoP Prize! ;)
