Santa's Checking his list Twice Blog Hop ...


Good morning, and welcome to the first ever QKR Stampede's Blog Hop
 
 ... "Santa's Checking his list Twice" ...

Today's Blog Hop has the QKR Design Team featuring one of the many new beautifully designed digital stamps being released in the QKR Stampede Store just in time for the holidays.  You should have arrived at my blog from the very talented Joann aka Sassy Raggedy.  However, if you just arrived make sure you head on over to the QKR Blog for a full list of the participants.  The Design Team did an amazing job with this new stamp ... you really don't want to miss any of their projects.


This is a Card Holder Box that I altered for today's Blog Hop.  I created a scene for Santa Claus ... I put him in front of a blazing fire surrounded by Christmas Trees, with an extra large present waiting to be opened. 

Here is a collage that shows different pictures of the box.

It wouldn't be a Hop without prizes, so without further ado here are the details ...

There are two (2) Mystery DT Members who will be choosing a winner from the comments left on their personal Blog Hop post.  These lucky winners will receive our featured QKR Stampede digi24240 stamp ... Santa's Checking his list Twice.

There's more ... One (1) lucky winner will receive the Grand Prize ... a total of five (5) new digital stamps of their choice from the QKR Store.  The Grand Prize winner will be chosen from the last stop of today's Blog Hop!

You only have today until Saturday, November 24th to go thru the Blog Hop, and the winner's will be revealed on the QKR Stampede Blog Sunday, November 25th.

Remember to leave a comment on each participants blog today.  You never know who the Mystery DT Members might be. ;o) 

Thank you for hopping along with us today, your next stop today is the lovely Sarah's Stamping & Stuff.
