Hoppin' into the holidays with TGF!

Hello friends! Please scroll down for today's Sweet November sneak peek and give away post... thanks!

I'm so excited to be joining the fun tonight with TGF... as they are ringing in the holidays with an all customer blog hop! To get your hop on and see the complete list of participants just head on over to the Splendid Stamping blog. As part of the festivities, prizes are being awarded in three different categories so I decided to create a card for each one.

First up is my card for the "Holiday Treats" challenge. I altered Yoga Anya into one of the elves that works in Santa's kitchen and she is taking a break to sample some of her fresh baked gingerbread cookies before taking a plate to the big guy himself. :)
To get this look I wiped away her face and the top of her head with a baby wipe before stamping and then used a light box to trace Sunshine Anya's face onto her. Then I just drew on a hat and and gave her long sleeves. You can check out my tutorial on this here.

Next up is my card for the "Santa, Baby" challenge. For this one I slightly altered Christmas Cheeky by wiping away her closed eyes and tracing on Cheeky Shooter's open eyes. Now it looks like she has spotted Santa as he comes down the chimney and she's just ready and waiting for him underneath the mistletoe. ;)

And finally I have a card for the "Let it Snow" challenge. I thought it would be fun to see some Creepers celebrating the holidays so I altered Creeper Friday by wiping away her headphones and I used Creeper Wednesday's torso so that the overall look had her dressed for the cold winter weather. And knowing how mischievous those Creepers can be I paper pieced a poor ol' snowman that Friday has just knocked over, LOL! If you ask me Friday won't be getting anything but coal in her stocking this year. :)
And BIG thanks to Donna for this most perfect sentiment stamp!
