CMC Holiday Bash!

Well, happy Friday to you all I hope you survived the week ok.  Even better than knowing it's Friday is knowing it's time to PARTY...and the party is at the CMC Classroom.  Suzanne has got a month's worth of fun planned to celebrate the holiday season. 

Here is what Suzanne has to say:

Starting December 7th the CMC Classroom will have its annual month-long Holiday Bash Celebration! Nothing more fun then having some fun challenges, games and prizes to start the season off right!? I hope you will find time to stop in and look around, join in and just have some fun. The Holiday Bash is really my way of THANKING ALL OF YOU for your continued support, friendship and patronage to the Classroom. So a lot of fun and a way to WIN SOME HUGE prizes from our sponsor!


*Starts Dec. 7th with a Holiday Blog Hop featuring projects by the CMC DT to kick off the month-long CMC Challenge!! And another way for you to win if you hop along!

*Every week will be a NEW Challenge and Prize...think scavenger hunts, puzzles, games!

*Charity Raffle - I'm giving away a NEW Silhouette Cameo machine to a lucky someone! How can you win it? Everytime you participate in a challenge during the month you get an entry for it. Also for every $3 you donate to the Charity (TBA) you get an entry. Every year I pick a different Charity to far we've raised $3200 over the years..and to me the season is all about GIVING so that's why I always include this.

Sounds like fun, right?  Well, on with the show.

For my card I used this wonderful image, Bells & Holly, by A Creative Need which can be found in the Can You Digi It? store.  It's such a pretty image and took no time at all to color with my Copics (Y28, Y23, Y21, Y11/r59, R39, R29, R27, R22/YG67, G40/BG10). I just love this paper from Graphic 45 too.  Very festive.  I ran a small piece of DCWV White Core Cardstock through my Cuttlebug in my swirls embossing folder, then sanded it a bit.  The ribbon and rhinestones are from my stash and I inked around the image with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink.  The totally cute sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.   

Well, that's it from me.  Your last stop on the hop is Patricia who always has something wonderful to share.  Be sure to leave a comment on everyone's blog for a chance to win a prize!  And don't forget to head over here to get all of the details for the Holiday Bash Celebration!
