Holly Jolly DT - Christmas Card & Blog Hop

Morning everyone!
You may notice that this was posted at 5am but I can assure you it was scheduled, even though I am bursting with excitement this morning.  A while ago I was asked to be part of the Holly Jolly Challenge Design Team, my term starting at the beginning of 2014 but I was invited to contribute to the Christmas Blog Hop, so here I am! You'll need to read to the end of the post otherwise you'll miss some important rules and regs!

The lovely sponsor I got my image from is Limited Runs and it's called Star Cupcake

Each member of the design team have been given a letter to spell out a couple of words related to the challenge so you'll need to visit all our blogs.  Hopefully you've arrived at my blog from my design colleague Cindy

The letter you have to collect from me is

and now, you'll need to hop across to another teamie, Carol, to find the next letter

The challenge part is simple - design a Christmas Card or Project but to take part you must do the following:
1 - link your card to the challenge post on Holly Jolly Challenge blog, using a direct link to your design, not just your blog
2 - comment on all blogs throughout the hop
3 - find the letters to spell out the words then send an email, with your answer to hollyjollychristmaschallenge@gmail.com 
please do not put your answer in any of your comments
The challenge finishes at midnight on 31 December and winners will be announced on 7 January.  The prize for the challenge is 10 digital images from Bugaboo and a $10 Gift Certificate from Fred, She Said

C'mon, join in the Christmas fun as there are lots more prizes up for grabs.  Pop over to the Holly Jolly Challenge blog to see them all.

Good Luck x
