Holly Jolly Blog Hop - Day1

** Edited: A Huge THANKS to Kristal from KAndrew Designs for having my piece published. You can click here to go to the link **

Good Evening Jolliers. Welcome to our 2Day Holly Jolly Blog Hop. We are happy to have you hoping along with us. We have over 20+ holiday gift ideas to show you over the next 2 days. There will lots of blog candy along the way. In addition to that, we will be having 3 Grand Prize winners in total. Our 1st grand prize is sponsored by Scrapadabadoo, our 2nd grand prize is sponsored by Sarah Pink Cricut and our 3rd grand prize is a mystery prize sponsored by Stephanie from Always Crafting.  The mystery prize will be revealed at the end of my post.  ** In order to qualify for the grand prizes, you must hop along to all the blogs and leave some bloggy love.

The hop begins with Stephanie and ends with me.

You should be hoping over from Sandra, if not you can continue from here and loop around until you come to me again or start from the beginning.

For my first project, I created a Tea Candle Holiday Card. Now from the front, it looks like an overly done card :) but when you open it, you get a nice little treat.

Picture 1: Front of the Card

Picture 2: I used this critter from Winter Frolic as my main image. I used Winter Frolic for the sentiment: "Warmth and Joy" and Lacy Labels for the Frames.



Picture 3: When you open it, tada. You have a nice little box.

Pictures 4 and 5: Closeups of the little box. The purpose of the box is for the Tea Candles. For this project you need 4 candles (I only had 2 on hand :) but you get the idea)
Picture 6 : Final Product

I am the last stop on this hop. Thank you for hopping with us tonight!! And I hope that you have enjoyed the projects and have walked away with plenty of ideas for you to work on.

Don't forget that we will begin Day 2 of our Holly Jolly Hop tomorrow Dec 11 at 9:00am Eastern Standard Time. We will have a whole new set of projects for you to drool over :)

In case you get lost along the way, here is the lineup of all the Sweet Ladies
 Jess (ME)

REMEMBER TO COME BACK TOMORROW AT 9AM EST

Oh that's right, you are waiting to find out what the mystery prize is. :) Like I said, Stephanie is sponsoring the 3rd grand prize. She is offering a $15 gift certificate for Peachy Keen Stamps. Now remember, in order to qualify you must hop along to every stop and leave some bloggy love.

For my personal blog candy, I will be offering a super cute scrapbook. I don't have a picture at the moment but I will soon. You don't have to be a follower, but I'd love it if you would be.  

Thanks for stopping by and come back tomorrow!!!
