Christmas Blog Hop & Challenge

Thanks to all of you who have participated in this Challenge.
I am now closing this week.
Merry Christmas!
We at Friday Sketchers want to offer our heartfelt wishes to all of you. May your Christmas be warm and bright!

I'm Claudia and to celebrate this very special time of the year, I have asked the DT of Friday Sketcher team if they wanted to join and do something out of the ordinary. So please be not surprised if I am the host of next week as well, when we are back with our regular postings. We appreciate the amazing support that you have shown us throughout the year and so we have organized something for all of you that we hope you enjoy!

Part 1 ~ The Challenge

Heidi Erickson from Stamp Shoppe Creations is our sponsor for this week. The winner will get Sidney the Penguin with two sayings that fit in his sign.

More about Stamp Shoppe Creations:

"My oldest son is a huge Pittsburgh Penguin’s fan…so when I decided to start my own line of rubber stamps in October 2009, it was only natural to create some penguins. We have a variety of cute stamps with some kids, sentiments and different animals along with several penguins. We are offering a free stamp valued at $6.75 for every order of $25 or more until the end of January. (You may even email us your request when you place your order) Be sure to check out our entire line and our new releases can be viewed after January 8, 2010."

Please follow Claudia's sketch below and remember that to qualify you must create & post a card using this sketch, link your post via Mr Linky (see bottom of this post) and your post must have a link to Friday Sketchers!

Part 2 ~ The Blog Hop

You may wonder why we don't have any sample cards here on this posting. It is because we all have posted our cards on our individual blogs and we each have a little gift of our own to give away for one of you! So instead of just one winner this week, we will have 7 lucky winners!
Just follow the hop and leave a comment on each DT member's blog for a chance to win their prize and dont forget to link your own card using the sketch here on the Friday Sketcher blog.

The hop starts here at the Friday Sketchers Blog and continues as follows:

Enjoy! We are taking a break until January 8th. We will be back then with a new challenge and we will announce all the winners at that time!

Now for the winner of last week's challenge... Thank you NCcards for your lovely shaker card using Aud's sketch. Please contact Aud with your mailing address.

This challenge is now closed, thanks to all for playing along!
