Digistamps4Joy World Card Making Day Blog Hop

Welcome to our World Card Making Day Blog Hop. You have arrived at Charlene’s Blog in the Fraser Valley in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

To celebrate World Card Making Day Digistamps4Joy is having a blog hop! And guess what…Digistamps4Joy is also offering the prizes! And what prizes they are too. Each DT member has gotten to choose her favorite image from the store to make a project out of….and that is the prize for her blog. So the image she presents it the image you have a chance to win! So with 12 stops along the hop, that gives you 12 chances to win! You might win one image…you might win more as each prize will be randomly drawn by each blog owner.

If you landed on my page first, then just carry on down the list, and from the top again till you are back at my blog OR start at the top at the Digistamps4Joy blog, and work your way though to the final stop (Ursula’s blog). The hop order is indicated on each blog, so you will not ‘get lost’!
Digistamps4joy (starting blog)
CHARLENE(that’s me, so you are here now)
DESIRE (Your next stop)
URSULA (last blog)

This is the card that I am showcasing for the Blog Hop. I used the image Festive Snooze and you can get it at the store or maybe win it here.
I coloured it with Staedtler Pencil crayons, oms, and my red and gold glitter pens. I used my homemade white flower soft for the snow at the bottom of the image. I used my SU Christmas Wheel (sorry, I don’t remember the exact name of it) and glitter blue embossing powder to add the flourishes. The frame for the image and sentiment was made with my Nestibilities Scalloped Oval Dies. In behind the image I have added more of my heat embossed paper. The base dp is from Bazzil and the glitter paper was some that I have had in my stash for years. I also used the glitter paper to punch out the snowflakes. The ornament is a svg from The Cutting Café. I used my SU ticket corner punch on some of my corners. The card fold is called a Center Step Card.

And this is the image that you can win on my blog
