Card Cupids Christmas Cheer Blog Hop!

ChristyUncategorized12 Comments

We’re having a blog hop! If you’ve just come from Steph’s blog, you’re on the right track. If you’re just finding the hop now, you’re going to want to head over to Card Cupids to get started. (Don’t worry, I’ll still be here when you get back!)

As you know (since I talk about it all the time), Card Cupids mission is to provide encouragement and joy by sending Card Cuddle Care Packages to children who are facing difficult challenges in their young lives regardless of their economic background. I love designing for this charity. It’s so wonderful to know that the cards I’m making will be able to seriously brighten someone’s day. I hope this blog hop will inspire some of you to donate. If you’d like to know how to send cards in, check the Donation Guidelines page on the Card Cupids website.

Today I’m sharing a card made with an adorable stamp from our blog hop sponsor, Sweet ‘n’ Sassy Stamps. Look how adorable this smiley snowman is. You want him, don’t you?

Well, one lucky winner of this blog hop could have him. Sweet ‘n’ Sassy has donated a $10 gift certificate for us to give away. And it doesn’t end there. Every member of our design team has donated a little something, so the total value of the grand prize is over $100!

So what’s my contribution, you ask? Well, you’ve heard me sing the praises of these…

Spica pens! If you’ve never tried Spicas, you are about to fall in love. They look like regular colored pens, but there are little tiny specs of mica suspended in the ink, which gives your writing just the slightest sparkle in the right light. I use them to sign all of my Card Cupids cards, and they’re great for journaling, too.

The grand prize winner will receive five (red, orange, yellow, green and blue), along with the gift certificate and the gifts from each of our design team members. Want to know what they are? Continue on with the hop!

    I quite agree, the snowman is adorable! And I love this blog hop; I'm learning about so many new products. I love your comment about acquiring crafting products and occasionally using them! Somehow, that sounds vaguely familiar.
