Welcome to the Christmas Card Blog Hop!

I want to thank you for stopping by my first blog hop, and I want to thank everyone that has a blog that is participating in the Christmas Card Blog Hop! I am can’t wait to see all of their projects!! I’m relatively new to the blog world, and I’ve been having fun with it!  Crafty Card Gallery, the iPhone app that this blog is for, is now in 12 countries!  So very exciting!
Grab your favorite beverage and settle down for a nice long hop.  Hopefully this will get you in the Christmas Spirit!
I have some Blog Candy for you!!!
How to enter to win?  Become a follower and leave a comment.  I will select the winners Monday night using my random number generator app.  Here are the 6 prizes:
1) a free copy of the crafty card gallery iPhone app

2) a copy of the Bite Size Body Guide

3) Thanks Cuttlebug embossing folder
4) Set up Stampin Up! Texturz plates kit #4
5) 6 sheets of Mrs. Grossman’s Christmas gift stickers
On to the card:
I was inspired by my new flannel sheets that have snowmen on them….
Aren’t those the cutest sheets ever?  My hubby found them!
On to the card since that’s what you’re here for!!!
This card wouldn’t be that difficult to mass produce, now that I’ve figured out all the measurements.
Here’s what I used to make the card:
My Cricut  & My Gypsy – the snowmen are from Gypsy Wandering (I hid the cutout on the inside) and the trees & cardinal & snowflakes are from Winter Wonderland.
Sookwang tape & Crystal Glitter Ritz Transparent Micro Fine Glitter
Cuttlebug snowflake & swiss dots embossing folders
White Gel pen & blue chalk ink
Here’s a video of it unfolding.
Even my dad got into the blog hop spirit.  I will post the card he made for me on Monday (since he doesn’t have a blog) and I shot horrible video of it!…

Here are two Christmas gift ideas:
1) Keep yourself from getting turkey butt!  The Bite Size Body Guide is a diet journal with a beautiful design.  Get a jump on your new years resolution!  It makes a great stocking stuffer!  If you order a copy of the Bite Size Body Guide today ($17), you will get $1 off AND a free card (I’ll send you a copy of the Christmas card I posted).  Check it out here  To order with this special deal, comment below & I’ll send you a paypal invoice…

  17. Hi Jennifer! I must have had a mental lapse when I first discovered your blog, and forgot to "follow". I'm now one of your latest fans!! Thank you for arranging this blog and I LOVE YOUR CARD! I love it so much that PLEASE DO SEND ME a diet journal (MUST DO THAT TOOOOOOO!) and a copy of your card, along with a PayPal invoice. I'll get right on that … well, at least paying for the journal, if not the diet. HOLIDAYS!! My doctor says I'm allowed up to THREE indiscretions this holiday season, figuring I'd enjoy dessert on Thanksgiving, Christmas and at ONE party. I think my FIRST indiscretion will be to ALWAYS eat dessert; second one, to NEVER miss a party with friends; and third, hmmmm, I think I'll leave that one up to your imagination! LOL Merry Holiday Season!

  18. Thank you so much for organizing this hop! It's such fun to see what everyone makes 🙂 Your card is adorable!!

  19. I am a new follower, I love how you took the ideal for your card of a sheet set and it is fantastic!! Thanks
