Christmas Baskets and a candy draw

"Happy Birthday to us....."

Welcome to the 2nd Blogiversary Blog Hop.

If you've arrived here from



You are right on track.

If you've landed here from anywhere else and you want to join in the hop then please start at the beginning at the OSCC challenge blog

Well, I can hardly believe that I've been working for the One Stop Craft Challenge for 2 years now! My, the time has flown by and it seems like only yesterday that we were getting all excited about our very first challenge.

To celebrate our 2nd blogiversary we are holding our first ever blog hop.

The challenge this week is nice and easy -

Anything goes

So I decided to make some Christmas sweetie baskets.


I'm entering these into the following challenges:
Crafts and Me - Make A Christmas Gift
Papertake - Sparkly and bright
ABC Challenge - G is for Glitter (glitter tinsel embossing powder)
CRAFT Challenge - Monotone
Fussy and Fancy - Winter Wonderland



The templates are from waltzing mouse. I embossed snowflakes in gold tinsel on some plain white card and teamed that up with some satin gold card. The baskets are trimmed with 3mm pearls and a 'old gold' ribbon.


I suppose that I should let you know what you could win if you enter the hop and submit a project to the challenge blog. We have some wonderful sponsors lined up and prizes...... and here are the wonderful prizes that you could win by joining in.
Prize 1 - Digi Doodle Shop - $10 to spend in store
Prize 2 - Sassy Studio Designs - 4 Digis of the winners choice
Prize 3 - CraftBrulee - $10 to spend in store
Prize 4 - One Stop Card Crafts - £15.00 to spend in store
Prize 5 - Wink Wink Ink - 3 Digi Stamps of the winners choice

Phew! And on top of that, I know there is some more candy on some of the DT's blog (this one included!)


MY candy is:


2 x Doolicraft Vintage Decoupage Toppers
6x6 Paper Pack
Pack of buttons
Pearl Gems
3 lots of Lace (beige, cream and white)
Roses
Charms

To be in with a chance of winning this candy, leave me a comment and add your name to the linky below before 6 pm UK time on Friday 5th November. I will announce the winner next Saturday 6th November.
