My Craft Spot - Christmas/Winter Release Blog Hop!!!

Hey Ya'll
It's Here!  The My Craft Spot Christmas/Winter Stamp Release Blog Hop!  If you are just stopping by today, make sure you head over to My Craft Spot to start at the beginning of the hop!  We are celebrating the release of 5 brand new My Craft Spot Stamp Sets!  If you get lost along your way, here is a list of everyone in the wonderful My Craft Spot design team in the order of the hop.

Bobby - You're here!  YAY!

There are a ton of fantastic prizes throughout the hop, so don't miss a single blog!  For my project, I combined Kimberly's beautiful ribbon and amazing stamp set with my new favorite Cricut Imagine Cartridge "Santa's Village"!  I have a ton of cool stuff to share with you over the next couple of weeks using this amazing cartridge and My Craft Spot goodies!  I also wanted to make something using the special surprise from Kimberly that is at the bottom of this post!
 This is a half card.  I used a simple red print for the bottom mat and a solid pink mat for the main.  Across the top, I gathered some beautiful Sky Blue Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot.  The stamp I used is from the "Merry Christmas" stamp set from My Craft Spot.  This ballet dancer if from the "Santa's Village" Cricut Imagine Cartridge.  The star cuts and the label shape are from CTMH-Art Philosophy.  The greenery is from the MS branch punch.
I used lots of stickles on this card.  Sky blue for the stars, Crystal for the lavender frame and the lavender on the outfit and green on the greenery pieces of her outfit.  I added red gems to the center of the stars.  I also used glossy effects on the ballet dancer.  The inside was kept very simple.  I just couldn't get over the way this card turned out.  I wasn't expecting much, but was so happy with it.  Now for the great part about today!  Now, for the really exciting part!!!  Kimberly generously donated the "Merry Christmas" stamp set to a lucky winner!  This is the set I used for this card!!!
In order to win this set, you must be a follower of this blog and leave a comment on the blog hop post telling us which project from the week was your favorite and why.  Also, please include a way for us to contact you if you are the lucky winner!  The winner will be announced on Tuesday, so be sure to check back and see if you have won!

We are so glad you visited today and we hope that you have enjoyed such a fun week of Christmas goodies!  Your next stop is Amber at My3escrapbooking!  Thank you so much for visiting with all of us today!  Stay tuned... I have so many fun Christmas projects to share with you starting tomorrow!  I can't wait to hear what ya'll have to say about them!!!

  4. Such a beautiful card. So delicate and so pretty. Love it. My favorite was the hot chocolate holder as I send a lot of them out during the winter season so that really helped me think of another way of presenting my little gift. Thanks for the continued inspiration.

  16. Love all the stickles on your cards and I’ve never seen a card down with the Cricut Imagine Cartridge before thanks for sharing. Hope to see more. I’m a new follower.

    Let’s see I liked White Christmas. What paper did you use and you said that you use Cricut to cut the pocket which cart did you use. Sorry about questions! :-)

  20. Now, Bobby -- asking me to pick which project is my fav?? That's like asking me to choose which child of mine is my fav. But lucky for me, I only have one child, so that's an easy choice!! (tee-hee)

    You know how I love ALL of your projects -- but if I "hafta choose", it'll have to be the wine charms. Such creativity and becuz you and your sweetie, Jill, created them. :-)

    And. . . I would LOVE to win one of these stamp sets. They are sooooo adorable! :-) Thanks for the chance!!
