Guylou’s Christmas Digis Blog Hop

Welcome to Brenscraps and Guylou’s Inimitability Christmas Digistamps Blog Hop. This is going to be a lot of fun!!  We are kicking things off at Guylou’s Inimitability where you will start and end the blog hop and if you have come here from Guylou's Blog then you’re doing great!  If not, please start at Guylou’s Inimitability or refer to the blog hop list at the bottom of this post to find your way.  The hop will be open today through Sunday, November 28th at 9:00pm EST.  

Guylou’s got some adorable new Christmas images to show you which are available NOW at Guylou’s Inimitability Online Store!

What is a blog hop without a prize??? 
One lucky winner will be drawn at random from the comments on this blog post to receive one digistamp of her choice from Guylou’s new releases and a grand winner will be selected on Guylou’s Inimitability Blog to win all five new releases. You must comment on all the blogs participating in this blog hop in order to qualify to win the grand prize.

Eight designers are hopping along, each creating something amazing with Guylou’s new Christmas digistamps. I created my card with the darling digi "Louise and Candycane.  I created a pocket card where I added a package of some yummy White Chocolate Peppermint hot chocolate.  The sentiment is from a Christmas set I got from All That Scraps.  The yummy papers are from Echo Park.  I love this years Christmas line.

The second card that I created uses "Louise and Wreath"  These yummy papers are from my stash of CTMH Christmas paper from about 2 years ago. Yes, I have so much paper that sometimes it takes my 2 years to pull it out!!  I am loving these colors this year.

    And of course a look at the inside of the card!

Thanks so much for playing along with us.  The next blog on your journey is Carmen.  Please make sure to leave a comment to be entered to win a digistamp of your choice from the new releases.

Hi glad I decided to hop. This first stop was well worth it and can't wait to see what's ahead. Louise and Candycane is awesome and that background paper is just so perfect. Louise and wreath is stunning; the blue, the gold, the touch of what looks like snow falling on the background....and the inside is just as wonderful!! You are terrific! Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas and work!
