Cardz TV Design Team Christmas Blog Hop!!!!

Welcome to  Cardz TV Stamps Christmas Blog hop!!! Wow and I have to say, everyone is in for a treat.  First things first, I just want to say,  THANKS MARY  for putting on such a wonderful hop!! If you were just stopping by to visit and would like to join us on this Christmas hop, just click here, to start at the beginning! If you came from lovely Kate's blog then you are at the right place.  There are giveaways through out the hop, starting at Cardz TV, Mary will be giving away the Gingerbread Cartridge and the Holly Jolly Stamp set. Lynn has also sponsored the hop and will be giving away an adorable North Pole Collection paper kit from Crate Paper! To be eligible for Cardz TV giveaways you must comment on each of the Design Team members blogs.

Now onto my project, I am featuring  altered mini composition books. These are wonderful and inexpensive Christmas gifts! They are great for grocery list, notes, address books and the list goes on....

I just want to tell you a little bit about my projects:

First up Miss Holly Jolly ! Her name is from Cardz TV Stamps the "Home for Christmas" set. She comes from the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge and is cut at 3.13. She wanted to look just perfect for her visiting guest today, so she is sporting her Peachy Keen Stamp smile, on her wide eyes and cheeks, she has Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils. Doesn't she look great?!!!

Accompanying her will be  Friends are the best presents! Their names are from the same stamp set "Home for Christmas". These two cuties are coming at you from Joys of the Season cartridge. Like Miss Holly Jolly, they too decided to sport their smile using Peachy Keen Stamps. Since they didn't bring their makeup they decided to borrow Miss Holly's, along with a White Gel Pen she found in her purse, of course he didn't put on as much as she did!

Take a bow Mini composition books, you did a fabulous job!!!

You may purchase this set of stamps the Minis are using from Mary at Cardz TV Stamps!

I hope you have enjoyed my creations and  the little mini Run Way Walk of Fame!! It's now time for you to head on over to talented Susan, I am sure you will be pleased!

MAG Challenge by the page #56/Giveaway!!!

Hi everyone!

Don't have too much longer now, Christmas will be here in no time, I don't know about you, but I am not

This week at Mag we are using the Paisley cartridge page 26.

Remember we can only use the images on this page, no other cricut cut images, however what ever else you have hiding in your stash feel free to use.

I am using the card/tab feature, I hid the contour with my gypsy so I could put this adorable little snowman on. Of course you just can't go wrong with Swiss Dots embossing folder, it's great for a snow scene. Think I like how it turned out!

I hope this has inspired you to join in on the fun, you can link your creation here, can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Creative Cutter Room is having such a wonderful giveaway, you can enter it here!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!
