Long post ,,,, get coffee :-)
For the first time ever we are joining forces with our challenge blogs;
Simon Says Stamp and Show & the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to bring you a SUPER hop to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays and the crafting fun you can have throughout!
To help celebrate we will be giving a $100 SHOPPING SPREE to the winner of this hop!
The theme for both challenges this week will be HOLIDAY FUN. Your entry can be Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas themed. You can make anything you like … a card, an ATC, a Scrapbook layout … the possibilities are endless!
At each Design Team member’s blog you will find a clue, you need to collect all the clues to form a code. The complete code will be your password to enter the Grand Prize draw. At each blog you will need to leave a comment and on the last blog you must leave a direct link to the project you have made for this challenge. The Blog hop will start at 10am Ohio time ( 3pm UK time 4pm CET) on September 8th, 2010 at the Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog and will finish on September 15th, 2010 at 10am Ohio time ( 3pm UK time 4pm CET) on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog. During the hop you will visit all of the Design Team member’s blogs and each blog will tell you where to go next for the following clue! If you lose your way at any time a full list of all the participating blogs with links will be available on Simon Says Stamp and Show … just remember you need to keep the clues in the correct order. Once you have made your project and linked it to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog you need to comment your link number together with the correct code in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog under the comments section of that week in order to be entered into the draw.
Added bonus! You will have a chance to win goodies from each HOP! Each DT member will be giving away an ingredient to make their creation, so don’t forget to comment throughout your hop!
The winner will be randomly drawn from all the correct answers for the Grand Prize next Wednesday. Remember you must have entered the Challenge and completed the blog hop to be eligible to win this $100 SHOPPING SPREE- courtesy of Simon Says Stamp Store!!
Good Luck Everyone!

You need to see my card and read all about how I made it before I tell you my letter and where you have to go next lol ,,,,,, :-)
For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge I used this gorgeous Wee and Reindeer stamp designed by Norma Fickel for Whiff of Joy I coloured the image with Copics and decoupaged Rudolph. I inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink and used a Glitz Roller Doodle vine along the side. This was inked with Hero Arts Latte chalk ink . The flower is my FAVE Tim Holtz Prima Poinsettia Limited Edition ,,these make a fabulous christmas gift for a crafty friend :-) The papers are Basic Grey from the Wassail and the Kraft Basic paper pads. I also used a Martha Stewart Corner Holly Punch, to be honest I dropped a blob of glossy accents which I used to stick the Robins Nest Dew Drops right at the bottom of the image ,, so I had to stick some holly there too lol,, oohh and Rudolph has a drop n his nose too :-) For the sentiment I used a Tim Holtz Sizzix die Ticket strip and a Tim Holtz Odds and ends cling stamp. Phew ,,,, think that's all !! :-)
From here you need to go to the fabulously talented CHRIS'S blog to see her fantastic card :-) the letter you need from me is 'C'
