Craft Your Passions Holiday Havoc Blog Hop!!

Welcome to Craft Your Passion Challenges "Holiday Havoc 2011" Blog Hop!!
We are very excited about holidays and wanted to add to the chaos and havoc.
What better way to do that, than to have a BLOG HOP!!!

If you have hopped over from Helen W, then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by and would like to join our hop from the beginning, please go to Craft Your Passion Challenges and follow along for a chance to win some AMAZING blog candy along the way and PRIZES at the end.

All Craft Your Passion DT members are going to be playing along in the hop with some very special guest designers.

Each designer along the way is featuring a project that showcases a digital image from at least one of our amazing Blog Hop Sponsors.
What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at Craft Your Passion Challenges for a chance to win one of several prizes.

But, there’s a twist. Be sure to visit all the stops and leave a comment (we will be checking). Once you have finished the hop, we would like you to create a HOLIDAY project using at least one digital stamp and enter it with our Linky tool.

While you are hopping, be sure to check out the blog candy the designer's have to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!
I have two cards to show you today. The first is using the Christmas stockings from Crafty Sentiments.
I kept this nice and simple just embossed the base card, added the ribbon, stuck the stockings to the ribbon and added the sentiment which is from a kaisercraft paper pad/ The stockings were coloured in with Tria markers!

This second card is using an Elf and Fairy Image from Stretch and Bubbles.
I coloured the image in with Tria markers and added kindyglitz to the fairy's dress and wings! I used the big shot to cut out some shapes behind the image and also a flourish. The arrow and sentiment are from the kaisercraft paper pad!. I added some kindyglitz and some rhinestones for some bling!

Your next stop is Arielle's blog, to see what she has in store for you today.

Remember, once you have hopped to all the stops and left your comments (we will be checking), it's your turn to show us your "Holiday Havoc" project.

Make sure to include a digital stamp somewhere on your project, and link up your project over at Craft Your Passion Challenges by Midnight CST December 23 to be eligible for the prizes. Winners will be announced on our Monday, December 26th Challenge post.
