12 Hops of Christmas FINAL STOP!

This is the LAST stop of the Hop, if you haven't started yet, go HERE

Sing it with me....

12 T C C digis
11 Sheets of DP
10 Bright Buttons
9 Beautiful Brads
8 Yards of Ribbon
7 Fancy Flowers
6 Blank Cards and Envelopes

5.... Bits of Bling

4 Feet of Hemp
3 Jingle Bells
2 Copic Sketch Markers

and a

Copic Airbrush System for YOU!!!!!

Oh yeah............. (you're soooo lucky you can't hear me!!!)

Tada...... our Christmas Goodies waiting to be won by some lucky hopper.... could be you, but first, better make sure you're in the running. Did you:
  • Comment on all the DT blogs?
  • Become a follower of our blog if you're not already?
  • Let us know what your favorite TCC image was?

If you did all that, you qualify for the Grand Prize mentioned above! But wait... if you didn't do all that, or just don't want to, you may just win something anyway since our DT are also drawing from comments on their blogs! The more players, the more winners :) (you can see all the details at the START of the hop if you missed it).

So, I bet you're wondering where that freebie is so you can make something and come back to have more ballots entered in the tree right? Well, wait no longer...

As you may have noticed, we have some new designs... yes, we have a new Artist at The Cafe! Her name is Maddy Nupp and she's the creator of Chibis (pronounced "cheebees") and Chibitude TM!!! I've snagged a little piece from Maddy's Site to tell you a bit about her...

"Hi! My name is Maddy, and I am an artist and sculptor and crafter and animator. I love to do lots and lots of different projects. The best description would be that I'm a sculptor, because what I make are Chibis. And I sculpt them in various mediums. Polymer Clay, Fabric, Felt, Paper, and even Electronically Sculpt them on the computer. There's no denying I'm obsessed with my little critters, and I make no apologies for that, because it's these little ones that keep me on track, reminding me to be kind, laugh as much as possible, play whenever I can, and to try with all my heart to have those that I meet feel the same feelings."

If you like these little ones, you should definitely go check out Maddy's sculptures (I have the pleasure of owning one!), they are FABULOUS! What a great gift that would make too... hmmm a Chibi and matching card!!! Anyway, back to the CANDY!!!!

For more entries, be sure to let us know if you:
  • Posted about our Hop & Candy somewhere
  • Were referred by someone (you'll both get an additional ballot!)
  • Made something with Rosebud (your freebie!) and posted it
Don't forget to check back for Tek Tuesday! As well, our Feature Friday next week... if you choose to play along, you'll get MORE ballots in the draw, YIPEE!!!

The draws will all be done on Friday, December 18th around noon, so you have until then to finish the hop (I will update all the links to our DTS to reflect the post addys on the Hop Start page)... remember, the more players, the more draws, so more chances to win!

Happy crafting & fa la la la la.... la la la la.
Kendra & Kelly

  12. Thanks for the awesome blog hop! I love all the new images but I have to say that my favorite image of all is "Serenade" with the lil chibi. I love these whimsical little guys! They look like so much fun!

    I couldn't find Meredith's hop. I was here at ten am this morning and started my hop, got to her and stopped to see if she was going to post later. I came back at 4:15 p.m. and her hop still isn't up :( I will try to check back later this eve if I have a chance.
    Great blog hop, again, it was fun.

  13. I have completed visiting all blogs & they are great My favorite would have to be Fairy magic. I am a follower & i love it.

  14. The images are all fabulous!!! What a wonderful blog hop!!! The ladies all did a marvelous job with the images!!! How do I pick just one? They are all so great. If I have to pick just one it would be Jacob Santa, because it reminds me of my little guy :)

    I signed up to be a follower of the blog and posted about the blog hop on my blog. You can read my post here:


  15. Great job....finished the hop with the two that weren't available earlier...hope Meredith is ok!

    My favorite is still Fa La La La Trio!!


  16. i like fa la la trio is super cute

  17. What a wonderful way to learn of more scrapbooking sites to someone so new to this world- TY for sharing the lovely cards created. I have to say my favorite would be the Angel Emmeline by Little Card Maker's Paper Creations (Lois). I love the shades of blue and the Angel, Beautiful Job! *Hugs*

  18. Finished! When back to see Kendra & Kelly in place of Meredith! Great Hop - even with a few late posts!! Still loving Cupcake Rosebud.

  31. What a greast blog hop! I think it's awesome that the theme that you did for it was after the twelve days of Christmas, I can not tell you how many versions I have made to this song, and I really like yours! I have become a follower, commented on all of the DT's blogs, however I had some problems with Heather's blog, I am not sure I posted on the right post, but I have looked at alot of her work and it is so detailed and beautiful! I did leave a comment on her blog in the post that is (stuck) at the top. Loved all of the images but my favourite if you must make me choose is probably Number 7 the Fa la la la trio. I have made a special post to tell visitors on my blog to come check out your awesome blog hop! Thanks so much for the fun time, the inspiration and the chance to win. Merry Christmas! *Candace*


  33. This was a great blog hop! After viewing all of them - I love the Santa but my all time favorite is the Angel that Lola used on her project! Thanks for the opportunity to play along and the chance to win great prizes!

  34. Thanks for such a nice hop. I really love the cat with the antlers and the attitude. Sorry Iam bad with names, but I love this image.

  35. Thanks for the hop. I think my fav was the girl angel...I believe used on Deanne's blog.

  36. Oh and I commented on all the blogs and am also a follower!
