Prize: $10 gift card!

Prize: Choice of one digi stamp set!

I decided to use the Holiday Deer and Santa's Sleigh digital stamp sets from MHKDesigns for my creation for the hop. Take a peek...


I started by creating a digital panel with some soon to be released digital paper and the image from the Holiday Deer digital stamp set. I colored the image with colored pencils and then added some Stickles and Liquid Pearls to accent the image.


I matted the panel in black, then added some twine, a button, and a sentiment from the Santa's Sleigh digital stamp set, framed in silver glitter paper for added texture.  I love the way this turned out! I can't wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below! :)



And now, are you ready to get hopping?! 

Make sure you leave a comment at each person's blog along the way because the prizes are hidden and we'll be doing random drawings from the blogs where they are hiding! :)  After you're done, make a creation to share with us here, too, for another chance to win!

Here's your hop order.
