Make It Crafty Christmas Blog Hop


 

Yay it's time to celebrate one of my favourite seasons with Make It Crafty - CHRISTMAS. There are some totally gorgeous, fun and unique new images to play with - and Zoe is offering 15% off ALL digi stamps in the Christmas Category until 2nd October.

But before we go on with the hop I'd like to first wish the lovely Zoe 

A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY 

and here's a cake to share!



Now we've filled up on yummy cake and are all refreshed it's time to tell you about ANOTHER surprise we have for you....

We contacted one of Zoe's artists (S.H.) who also wanted to participate and drew us this gorgeous party girl for the occasion. Thank you!!

This is "Party Girl Zoe" and isn't she ca-ute! We wanted to make sure everyone was included in our celebration so we're giving away Party Girl Zoe as a freebie to everyone who wants to join in and spread some birthday cheer!! All you need to do is create a new project using a Make it Crafty image or chippies and upload it into the gallery HERE by October 12th. Then email Barbara at ForgottenScraps@gmail.com with a link to your project to claim her!

OK - NOW it's time for the hop - LOL.

You should have started the hop at the Make It Colourful Blog - so hop on back if you haven't as there's lots of blog candies up for grabs along the way! If you ARE already hopping along you should have arrived here from Tracy's Blog where I'm sure there is something amazing to see!


I chose this cheeky duo to play with because they appeal to my wacky sense of humour - this is just the sort of good natured fun that goes on in my house - LOL. I've also been having fun with round cards and thought these guys would suit this quirky shape. Don't forget to check out all the fabulous new images in store at Make It Crafty HERE.

Now onto MY little prize -  included is Simply Sassy 'Retail Therapy' rubber stamp, Magnolia 'Gingerbread Tilda' rubber stamp, Emerald Faeries 'Isla' rubber stamp, Flourish with Bling pearls, Make it Crafty chipboard 'Mix'n'Match Centres'. I'll randomly select the winner from someone who leaves me a comment and will announce it here on Friday October 14th.
Now it's time to send you on your way to the amazing Maria's Blog - where the fun will continue and so will the gorgeous Christmas creations! And make sure you head on over to Zoe's personal blog and wish her a Happy Birthday.

Here's the full hop list if you get lost aloing the way - links are on my sidebar under the Make It Colourful logo...
