Welcome to Craft Your Passion Challenges "Holiday Havoc 2011" Blog Hop!!

We are very excited about holidays and wanted to add to the chaos and havoc. 
What better way to do that than to have a BLOG HOP!!!

If you have hopped over from Torrey, then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by and would like to join our hop from the beginning, please go to Craft Your Passion Challenges and follow along for a chance to win some AMAZING blog candy along the way and PRIZES at the end.

All Craft Your Passion DT members are going to be playing along in the hop with some very special guest designers.

Each designer along the way is featuring a project that showcases a digital image from at least one of our amazing Blog Hop Sponsors.
What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at 
for a chance to win one of several prizes.

But, there’s a twist. Be sure to visit all the stops and leave a comment (we will be checking). Once you have finished the hop, we would like you to create a HOLIDAY project using at least one digital stamp and enter it with our Linky tool.

While you are hopping, be sure to check out the blog candy the designer's have to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!

Okay, so let the Holiday Havoc at Cookie Adventures begin!!!
I am showcasing 2 cards I made with Bugaboo's adorable Little Penguin Winter -
Winter Bench image.

Little Penguin Winter - winter bench

For my first card, I tried my hand at making a tri-fold shutter card.  It is a first attempt for me and I am quite pleased with the resulting project.

I used papers from Echo Park's Winter Park collection.  The die was cut from Cricut Expression using Accent Essentials cartridge.  The Christmas tree is a stamp from Imaginisce which I fussy cut.  Sentiment from PapertreyInk. Bling from My Mind's Eye.

For my second card, I went for a "warmer" card with red as primary colour.  Here it goes.

I mixed and matched papers from American Crafts and My Mind's Eye. Christmas Baker's Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Button from My Minds's Eye.  Corners rounded off with EK Success puncher.  The base is kraft cardstock.

I hope you like it and I also hope you have been inspired to create your own Holiday Havoc project. :)

Oh, and just before you hop on, I am giving away some blog candy.  Not one, but two will be chosen thru Mr. Random Org get to take home these little treats.

Treat # 1 - Pearl & Rhinestones

Treat # 2 - 3D Handmade Stickers

Treat # 1 goes to one Cookie Adventures Blog visitor who leaves a comment on this post.
Treat # 2  goes to one Cookie Adventures Facebook Page visitor who posts on the page wall.

That's it from me, Jenny aka Wifey Cookie. Next stop is Doreen's blog.

Remember, once you have hopped to all the stops and left your comments (we will be checking), it's your turn to show us your "Holiday Havoc" project.

Make sure to include a digital stamp somewhere on your project, and link up your project over at Craft Your Passion Challenges by Midnight CST December 23 to be eligible for the prizes. Winners will be announced on our Monday, December 26th Challenge post.

That tri-fold card looks gorgeous. However I am a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas so the Red one really stole my heart.

Merry Christmas
