HOC Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the House of Cards end of the term Blog Hop! 
If you've arrived here from Sue's blog then you are in the right place. If not, pop on over to the House of Cards challenge blog because you don't want to miss anything along the way! We have some fabulous sponsors that are providing prizes, so make sure to leave a comment at each stop for a chance to win!

This hop will run from December 1st through December 15th and any card style is welcome and we've got a gorgeous photo inspiration for you to work with!
Here are all of our sponsors and our team will be using a variety of products
from these companies!

Prize: Digital Stamps Prize Package

Prize: Prize Package

Prize: Gift Card to Store store

Prize:Any three products of your choice!


All of my creations feature the beautiful 'Stencil in the Holidays' digi stamp set from MHKDesigns! AND I changed the black & white images/sentiments to fit my designs :)

On this card and tag I used the pink, gold and creams colors in the photo for my inspiration... I used the pine cones, poinsettia and sentiment from the set. The background was embossed with the CB snowflake folder and I used a spellbinder die for the poinsettia. I added Walnut Stain Distress ink to all the edges and the pale pink sequins, gold ribbon and gem are from my stash.  

AND here's a second card using just cream and gold... I added a touch of VersaMark ink and gold Perfect Pearls to the embossed panel... it's so sparkly IRL!   
Also, this is my last post as part of the HOC DT... After 2 1/2 years I've decided to step down and I wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to Mynn and the entire team... it's been wonderful working with such a talented team of stampers and I wish you all the very best!

Now... hop on over to Toni's blog AND don't forget to link up a card after completing the hop for an extra chance to win a mystery prize from one of our sponsors!

Have fun hopping and thanks so much for stopping by!

Challenges I would like to enter:
