Kickin' Off Christmas Blog Hop!!!

Good morning blog hoppin' PEEPS! Welcome to the Kickin' Off Christmas Blog Hop! If you just arrived from Dana's wonderful blog, you are on the right track. If you didn't come from Dana, please see the blog list below to start at the beginning of the hop...and trust me, you do *not* want to miss out on any of the stops along the way :)

Amy Chomas from Chomas Creations along with Samantha Peyton from Scrapmaster's Paradise (home of the Daringly Delightful Stamps), have teamed up to bring you some awesome creations and some awesome prizes up for grabs! Please note that Amy and Samantha BOTH are having Pre-Black Friday sales starting today at the SP and Company store and at Chomas Creations. CHECK 'EM OUT!

Being on Samantha's Design Team as a "Color Diva" has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience for me! And it's just getting better and better! I now get to play with new lines of STAMPS! How lucky am I?!? I decided to whip up a card using not one, not two, but THREE (3) sets! I got my color combination from The Play Date Cafe for this beauty:


Stamps: Ultimate Sentiments I, Mini Card Creations II, and Falling Snow; Paper: Old Olive, Real Red and Whisper White; Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Momento Black; Accessories: acrylic blocks, Old Olive ribbon, bling gems, snowflake embossing folder

Would you like to win a stamp set from SP & Company?? How about this cutie set:


For your chance at this stamp set (donated by SP & Company), please be sure to do the following:

1. Become a Follower on my blog, if you aren't already.
2. Be sure to leave a comment on this post to be eligible for the prize.

For added bonuses on this hop, be sure to go through the WHOLE list of participants as Amy is going to draw a random winner from all comments....AND...the caboose of the hop, Samantha, has a wonderful giveaway as well!

Now you need to hop on over to dear Samantha's blog for some yummy goodness!!!
