OSAAT Blog Hop

Good morning folks!
Guess what today is? It is BLOG HOP time at One Stitch At A Time!! I am super excited about this as it is my first time to be involved in a Blog Hop as a Designer. Each of my Design Team mates have made something fabulous to share with you and there are oodles of prizes to be won. Our Blog Hop runs from today through to January 5, 2013. Do you want to know how to win one of our awesome prizes?
To win a prize:
1. You can hop around to each of our blogs where you MUST leave a message on every DT blog. You have to hop to each blog in order as they are listed because each of us has a special letter for you to collect. The letters spell a word/words which you will email to Choccy when you have completed the hop. A lucky winner will win the full set of images used by the DT. ( There will be a super freebie for everyone that completes the hop )
2. By commenting on each of our blogs, your name is entered into a draw to win the digital image/papers that we have used in our creation. Thats right folks, each of the DT members have a prize to be won on their blog.
3. You can also enter the regular challenge on the OSAAT blog. If you use a Stitchy Bear image, you have a chance of winning a complete set of the digital images/papers the DT have used for the Hop. If you use a non-Stitchy Bear image, you could win one image used by the DT.

Here is what I made for our Blog Hop:

Isn't this image by Ike beautiful? She is called Poinsettia Fairy. For a chance to win this gorgeous digital image, just leave a comment at the bottom of this post.

Remember that I said you had to hop to each blog in a specific order? Here is the order:

Choccy DT Coordinator
Tracey  (that's me)

So, as I had said, each DT member has a special letter for you to collect. The letter I have to share with you is the letter "L". Your next stop on our hop is CG
Thank you so much for hopping by to visit me blog today!

Christmas Door

Good day!
I am getting super excited for this coming Sunday, December 16th.......I am a creating a card for my very first Blog Hop as a designer!! Only 4 more sleeps, where I live anyway, lol. Each of us even received special images to use from Stitchy and her wonderful team of Digital Image Creators. Wait till you see what each of us has made! And the prizes........OH BOY!!! You are going to love it, I promise :)

Well, enough teasing for now, I guess, lol. I really want to share another Christmas card with you. I decided to make this very clean and simple so that I didn't distract from the image. There is so much detail in my digi image that I decided to not even colour it this time around.

Here it is:
