Christmas Blog Hop!

Julie of our Magnolia-licious group had this great idea that we could have a blog hop including anyone in the group who wanted to join her in making a Christmas card on the 25th of each month! Fun, huh? Well, there is a great group of stampers ready to participate this month! If you are already hopping you have come here from Carole's blog Fibre Junkie. Julie is at the beginning if you want to start there! There was a suggested stamp, but I went with one I had started to color before and never finished. Her skin was colored, not all of her. I'm someone who is "in the season". I don't usually make cards too far ahead and I'm not good at getting my Christmas cards done early. This challenge is very different for me! So, I went with Tilda with her Roses and kept it quite simple.
My card is 4.5 x 5.5". The paper that is cuttlebugged is from a 6 x6 Basic Grey pad and the Burgundy card stock is from Papertrey Ink. I sort of checked out the Featured Stamper on SCS and saw a few cards with the border punch at the bottom like this and the card was done!
I'm sorry my photos aren't very good (no matter how much I tilt my computer screen!).
The colors I used are as follows:
E000, R20 and E01
R14, R46, R89 and R000
YG97 and YG99
E33, E15, E59, E25, E40, E42
YR21, Y17 W1, W3, W5
Your next stop on the hop is DEB, enjoy what she has (and take a look at her other blog entries-WOW!!) and enjoy the hop!
Now I need to choose winner of the Pretty in Pink (Edwin) card from one week ago:
Here we go:
My winner is comment # 125-JODIE FROM OZ!! Actually, I thinkshe is from Australia!
Jodie, please contact me at drowley6@stny.rr.com so I can get your package sent!
Thanks!
Oh, yes, THANK YOU so much for allthe great comments on my Mos' cupid treat bag-I appreciate them soooooo much!
