Freestyle TSB Hop

Hi! I'm so happy you stopped by!

You should have arrived here from the AMAZING MIRANDA'S BLOG!
I don't know how I got to be the lucky one to follow her,
but I hope you're enjoying your Hop!

Just for stopping by to visit today,
you can enter for a chance to win an image from TSB
just by leaving me a comment to let me know you were here!!

It has been an AMAZING first month from the new TSB design team gals, I don't know about you all but these ladies blow me away daily with their projects. So we thought let's have a "Freestyle Blog Hop" to show off those talents. What is a "Freestyle Hop" you may ask? Well we were given free reign to create any project we would like using any TSB image... 

I chose to use Smoochie the Elf,
which you can find in the "Smoochies" section 

The gold dots are actually supposed to be "jingle bells",
but they don't look like it in this picture.... (?)
I'm just thankful I finally got a decent picture
of this adorable little guy!
It's been a battle with the camera all day!

The background presents and red paper 
Digital Scrapbooking Kit!

Someday, it's possible, I might actually learn how
to do digi-scrapping, but for now,
I just love the JLJ Designs papers and designs
for printing the "old-fashioned" way!

I can't remember where I got the "Ho Ho Ho"
It's a metal "thing" that I had to set using my hammer!
That was fun! (-:

This hop starts today, November 11th (12:01 am CST) and will run all weekend ending on Sunday, November 13th (11:59 pm CST) 
to allow you plenty of time to hop. 

Now with any hop there has to be some prizes along the way right? 
Well this hop is no exception!! 
You will want to make sure to visit each design team member's blog 
and leave a comment as each one of us will be giving away one TSB image!

If that isn't enough to entice you to hop with us, well maybe this will- 

1 random person (who comments on all DT blogs 
and leaves a comment at the Stamping Boutique Blog at the end) 
will be selected to win 
the entire set of our newest line of images called the Smoochies.

HOLY MOLY, now that is a great prize as there are 
11 images in the line currently!!! 
You can see the Smoochies HERE!

So are you ready to hop? 

Well the hop started with Christy over at her blog Christy's Zaney Creations
so go on over and see what she has in store for you!

You'll need to go see what Melissa has created for you next!
I can guarantee you'll be glad you did!!

Below is your hop order in case you get lost along the way:

Do You Stack Up: Inspired by a Song.
well, of course, my song is "Jingle Bells". I actually caught myself singing it while coloring!
well, with the green glitter paper background and glitter on all my jingle bells, we have definitely achieved FULL sparkle! (-:

Cathy -Mercieschild said...

I love that little elf and what an awesome job you did on him. I like the way you used the jewels in a whispy pattern, it just adds so much to the card by being that way and not straight. And the colors and the packages are wonderful too. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Hugs Cathy K
