Sugar Creek Hollow Christmas Release

Good morning bloggers!  We've been so excited for today's Christmas digi stamps release at Sugar Creek Hollow.  We have some incredibly beautiful stamps being released today - if you're not yet in the Christmas mood, visit our Shoppe and you will be!  Also today, we're having a blog hop challenge with a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner.  All you have to do is Decode our secret worD by hopping around to each of our Design team blogs gathering the letters along the way.  Of course you have to spend some time leaving some love (comments) on each blog before you move on.  So if you've arrived my blog from my fabulously talented team member Cec then you're on the right path.  If not, please start over at Tracy's blog - she's the owner and master talent behind the release today and you'll love what you see there! Now on to the card...

This is one of the new Christmas Digi stamps sets at Sugar Creek Hollow called "Winter Wonderland".  It's a set of three stamps for $5 - an absolute value in my mind - and I love all three of them.  In fact my card uses elements of all these stamps on it. 

I used the skate image on the main focal panel, colored with Copics and glittered it up.  But if you look closely at the Cosmo Cricket "Mitten Weather" DP, I used the snowflake and the star from the other two images!  I just laid out the various sized snowflakes and stars virtually in my word program and then printed that on to the DP. 

Now let's keep you moving along the hop.  If you have figured out my letter, leave me a comment please and then head on over to my friend Renee's blog to find your next letter.  You'll love what Renee is showing - truly a feast for your eyes.  I've also listed all the design team links on my left sidebar so you can see where you are and where you're hopping to!  You should end up at the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe where you enter the secret word

Thanks for "hopping" by today!

I absolutely love this card. The color choice is outstanding and I love how you used the snowflake to make your own background paper! Your scalloped border and circle work perfect with this stamp. So beautiful.

I for one would have never thought to use shades of pink/rose for a Christmas card! But you did and pulled it off with such beauty and elegance! I am glad you told us to look at the background paper, what a clever idea, just beautiful the way you incorporated the images!! Such talent, such a beautiful creation!!! I really am awe struck at this beauty!
