Craft Your Passion Challenges - Holiday Havoc Blog Hop

Welcome People from wherever you are!
This is a long, long post, so best grab a cuppa before you start, you could be here for a while!! LOL
I always enjoy being part of a fabulous blog hop and when I saw this one I just had to join in. So here goes then!
Welcome to Craft Your Passion Challenges "Holiday Havoc 2011" Blog Hop!!

We are very excited about holidays and wanted to add to the chaos and havoc.
What better way to do that, than to have a BLOG HOP!!!

If you have hopped over from Jacqui's blog, then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by and would like to join our hop from the beginning, please go to Craft Your Passion Challenges and follow along for a chance to win some AMAZING blog candy along the way and PRIZES at the end.

All Craft Your Passion DT members are going to be playing along in the hop with some very special guest designers.

Each designer along the way is featuring a project that showcases a digital image from at least one of our amazing Blog Hop Sponsors.
What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at Craft Your Passion Challenges for a chance to win one of several prizes.

But, there’s a twist. Be sure to visit all the stops and leave a comment (we will be checking). Once you have finished the hop, we would like you to create a HOLIDAY project using at least one digital stamp and enter it with our Linky tool.

While you are hopping, be sure to check out the blog candy the designer's have to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!
So here are the two projects I made:
My first project features an image from one of my most favourite Digital Artists, Jodie at Bugaboo.
This is called Little Penguin Winter bench and you can find it here:
I coloured the image with Prismacolour Pencils and Promarkers.  I had a go at putting some sky in the background, not sure if it worked really though.  The poinsettia is a Marianne Creatables die, I just love this die.  I added some glitter on the embossed lines. 
The two sentiment stamps are Kanban stamps and come as part of a Reindeer set, as are the snowflake stamps, and all are stamped and embossed.  The baubles are something I have had in my stash for simply ages. 

The fabulous lush velvet ribbon is from, yes you guessed it, Crafty Ribbons and you can see the full range here.
So, that was my first project and here is my second:
The image is from Crafty Sentiments, another of the fabulous sponsors of this Holiday Havoc blog hop.
Once again the lush velvet ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons (see here).  I added a glittered stocking which is a Jolie's boutique sticker and again I've had this for ever!!
I coloured the image with my promarkers and then stamped some snowflakes on to the stocking and covered it with glitter.
The sentiment is from the lovely Lynne at Sentiments 4 You.

Next stop by Roro's blog, to see what she has in store for you today.

Remember, once you have hopped to all the stops and left your comments (we will be checking), it's your turn to show us your "Holiday Havoc" project.
Make sure to include a digital stamp somewhere on your project, and link up your project over at Craft Your Passion Challenges by Midnight CST December 23 to be eligible for the prizes. Winners will be announced on our Monday, December 26th Challenge post.
Phew, I think I'd best go and sit down for a while now to recover.
Have fun everyone.
