TD 07--Christmas Challenge & Blog Hop!

This month's challenge at Tiffany Doodles is all about Christmas! And Tiffany decided to celebrate the debut of our new design team with a blog hop.
A three day blog hop! That means in addition to entering the challenge,
you have three days to visit all the team blogs, leave a comment, and be eligible for lots of digi giveaways!

I hope you arrived here by way of Collette's blog. If not, start at the beginning at Tiffany Doodles. You won't want to miss a single blog because the top prize for three random commenters who complete the hop, will be
three digis of their choice!



And Tiffany is generously allowing all of her design team members to have a giveaway of one of her digis! During the hop, leave a comment on each blog and you'll be eligible to win that team member's digi through a random drawing. 

I chose Singing Birds as my giveaway. If you want a chance to win this adorable digi, simply leave me a comment and I'll choose a winner after the hop.


Here's my card using Singing Birds. I printed the image onto kraft cardstock, colored it
 with Copics and shaded with Prismacolor pencils. I used the deckle edge oval Nestabilities
to die cut the image, and sponged white ink around the edges. The background is Magical 
Background by Hero Arts, and the seam binding was dyed with distress inks.

Here's the blog hop order to help you along the way:


Tiffany has lots of freebies for you to try before you buy. And she's hoping to have her new store opened by Christmas! Also, if you need sponsorship for any challenges you may host, feel free to contact Tiffany.

Remember that you don't have to use a Tiffany Doodles image for any of her challenges--hopefully you'll win some! And here's a winter special for you: Buy 3 digis and get the 4th for free!

The Christmas challenge starts today, the 7th, and runs through December 31st. We hope you get tons of inspiration from our design team and play along with us!
Now hop on over to Jeannie's blog to see her inspiring work...

Stamps: Tiffany Doodles digital stamp, Hero Arts background
Cardstock: Paper Accent kraft
Ink: Papertrey Ink Fresh Snow, Distress inks
Other: Copics, Prismacolor pencils, Nestabilities, seam binding, pearls, corner rounder, pop dots
