Blog Hop All Month Long - Caroling Snowman

Glad you have joined our Come and Get It Challenges blog hop. We have such great prizes this month.  Lots of Blog Hop sponsors means lots of great prizes.  

My card was made with a digital image stamp from one of our sponsors The Stamping Boutique called Caroling Snowman. The Stamping Boutique has a great line of digital stamps, you can check them out here.  


I coloured my images with my Copics and glitter pen, then covered my entire image with Sookwang tape and glitter beads.  To complete the card I added a couple of snowflake die cuts and a sentiment.

My letter for this blog hop challenge is:


Check out the Come and Get It  blog to see the list of great prizes. I hope you will join our blog hop and good luck to all that play. 



At this time I would also like to wish each one of you a Merry Christmas, and all the best in the New Year.  Hope you will join us in 2014 for some great challenges.
