Jingle Bells, Batman Smells....

WAIT- that isn't what this is!  This is the blog hop with Fairy Knoll!  No stinking here :).  I hope you started at the Fairy Knoll Challenge blog, but regardless of how you got here, WELCOME!

If you hop with us and comment on all the blogs, you will have the opportunity to win THIS:


The ENTIRE Winter/Holiday release! I know, pretty amazing isn't it!?!?!  Don't worry if you get lost along the way.  The list of all the blogs and full details are on the Fairy Knoll Challenge Blog if you need them.  But is that all? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, you have a chance to win here as well.  Someone who comments on my blog will win one digi from the release of their choice.  Winners will be posted on the Fairy Knoll Challenge Blog on Monday.

Today I get to share the Jingle Bells digi


I started by coloring the wonderful image with my markers and both my gold and green Spica pens for the fabulous shimmer and shine.


I ran the dark green cardstock through my cuttlebug for some dry embossing and then used my FAVORITE metallic rub on colors by Craft-T.  I use these a LOT and don't think I ever shared with you how FABULOUS they are.


Now I have another gorgeous Christmas card all ready to go!  

The next stop on your hop is Audrey's blog.  I know she had made something STUNNING to share, because she always does.  Hop along and leave her some love while you are there.

Get Inky!
Alex
