Cardinals in the Window



(my card uses Deedee's Digis Christmas Cardinal digital stamp set)

Happy December!
It's a brand new month, and what better way to celebrate then with a blog hop? This month Deedee's Digis is proudly sponsoring the quarterly blog hop at the House of Cards Challenge blog, where all of their hop creations are centered around the following inspiration photo...


                                 

If you participate in the House of Cards Challenge blog hop, you could win one of several prizes from a variety of sponsors, but Deedee's Digis is also having it's own blog hop in tandem with theirs!

Some of Deedee's Digis DT members have made cards based on this inspiration photo, and if you're inspired to play along and do the hop, you could win some fantastic prizes! You have until 11:55 PM Pacific Time this Saturday, December 5th to visit our participating designer's blogs and leave some love. At the end of our hop, a winner will be chosen from the comments left on each participating DT member's blog, and each winner will receive one digi set of their choice from Deedee's store. All winners will be announced on Deedee's Digis blog on Monday, December 7th.

When you've finished visiting each DT member's blog, be sure and stop back at Deedee's Digi's blog and leave a comment telling her you've completed the hop. Those who do will be entered to win a grand prize of a $15 gift code to the store.

Last but not least, no Deedee's Digis blog hop would be complete without a FREEBIE to kick it off. The new "Gift of Love" digi set is available to download for FREE in the "Try Before you Buy" area of the shop through December 6th.

                               
             Here are the participating designer's blogs to start the hop! Have fun!

On a real sad note, Deedee announced that she is closing her store at the end of this month. You can read all of the details HERE.
Have fun hopping and make it a great day!

Hi, Carol! I am sad to see that Deedee's is closing but I agree that family is priority. Your card is gorgeous. I love the tree and presents and the gorgeous cardinals in the window. I would love to look out my window and see these lovely birds. A brilliantly designed card! I'm doing Deedee's hop today!
