CSAYL It's a great celebration !!

It is our last  Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge of the year AND we are hosting a BIG party to celebrate!!!  
We are switching it up a bit for our last challenge,  normally the design team's creations are posted on the CSAYL blog for inspiration.  

This week, we are hosting a challenge and a blog hop! 

Check out each of the design team member's blogs and leave a comment, 3 random commenters will win a prize.  Then go back to the CSAYL blog  and play along with this week's challenge, there will be 7 random winners drawn from the participants this week.   That means there are 10 chances to win if you hop and participate in the challenge - we said this party was BIG!!!

 the whole Card combo comes with its xmas tag.

Great job and I LOVE the cross stitch...brilliant x

Heather said...

I used this template, too! It is really a great way to give a small little something and make it extra special. Your little tag is adorable and the ornament made by your mother will be a special treasure.

Julie E said...

What a great combo Patty and what a year! The classic colors on your set coordinate wonderully with the gift. Fab of course!

Crafters Guild Sisters said...

Awesome gift set! So festive :)

Pia S said...

Your version of the gift card combo is so festive and fun -the Bugaboo image seems to be perfect with this design! I think the cross-stitched detail on the inside is such a great detail too. I imagine you've put much effort and time into this lovely Christmas project -well done!

Hello and Wow! I love the set you created. Now I wish I could cross-stitch - that is so beautiful! I came here for the blog hop and for some inspiration and I'm so happy I did. I love the snowman digi that you used - your dp and punched border are perfect! Thank you so much for showing your beautiful creations - I will be making my set today so I guess I should go get busy. Wishing you a joyful day!
