CBD Blog Hop!

It's Blog Hop Time!

I'm so glad you came to visit and join the hop.
My blog is the second last stop, so if you started here, I would hate for you to miss out on all the fabulous creations of my fellow DT sisters.
The Hop started here.

Our generous sponsors:

The Theme: Our favourite holiday.

We decided to all make cards according to our favourite holiday. 
I just love Christmas time!
Here in the Southern Hemisphere it is summer at Christmas time, but that never stops us to have many of the traditional Christmas fare.
Fruitcake and fruit mince pies are some of the things I really like.
The tree, the decorations and the gift wrapping are some of my favourite activities around that time.
But, the special message of Christmas, of a Child born unto us is what makes Christmas my real favourite time of the year.

My cards:
Mini Bethlehem from The Doodle Pantry

I used the pre-coloured images from the set as well as the paper.
Glitter glue makes the card sparkle!

 A little extra cutting and some piercing was needed to make the flower.
Glitter glue added a final touch!
The Line Up:
Sharon - Scrap Happy
Rene - Life In the Craft Lane (<--- you are here)
