A Christmas Blog Hop at Oldie But A Goodie and Candy

Good morning all my lovely friends it's an exciting day for me today as I'm about to be involved in my first ever Blog Hop over at

Where Francesca is hosting a fabulous challenge of
Christmas In September

and as today is a special day at Oldie But A Goodie (it's the challenge blogs 1st Birthday) we are celebrating with a Blog Hop with lots of super prizes up for grabs.

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the hop, the fabulous prizes you can win and to see what the lovely girls have made for your inspiration.

You should have arrived here from the Lovely Francesca's blog and the letter you are looking for from me is E

The next stop on your hop is Sara but don't worry if you get lost, just head back to the main challenge blog to find your way again.

For my card I have used Gift Wrapped Tilda from the Christmas 2010 collection and yes Jill, this is the first time I have inked her up, shame on me! The beautiful paper is Anna Griffin, its from a Christmas box set that I have never used either! The flowers and berries are W.O.C. and a Martha Stewart holly punch finishes it off.

I have a little Christmas Candy up for grabs on my blog for the hop, all you need to do is leave a comment on all the DT blogs and I will pick a winner using the random integer thingy from my commenters (is that a word?)
Thank you for visiting me today and for all the lovely comments that I receive and a very
Merry Christmas to you all!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie x
