Kincking off Christmas Blog Hop


Hi Everyone and welcome to Kickin' off Christmas Blog Hop.
If you arrived here from Susan's blog you are on the right track. I hope you are enjoying all the wonderful creations along the way and that you are remembering to leave comments so that you can win one of the wonderful prizes.  Be sure to hop to the end because our caboose, Samantha, has a great give away. AND for each comment you leave, you have a better chance of winning a Custom Crops $25 gift card. Isn't that wonderful.
For my project I made a gift bag and filled it with puppy chow.
I love puppy chow and when I saw Christmas Emma by Samantha at SP & Company I knew I would be using her on some Christmas gifts. I made up a big batch today and set to work making a gift bag to fill.
So now I guess you would like to see the gift page.
This is the front with a gift tag/card and Emma peeking out.
This is the back with the recipe and another cute Emma.
The ornament on the front opens like a card so you can see all of Emma and write a message.
This gift bag is going in the mail box for the mail person. I  like to leave a little something at Christmas just to let them know I appreciate all that they do.
Now for the prize. Samantha from SP & Company has given me this gorgeous stamp set called Ornamental Trees to give away to one lucky winner. You can check out some of the beautiful cards that have been made with this set here.

In order to be eligible for the prize all you have to do is become a follower, if you are not already, and leave a comment. That's all!
Your next hop will take you to  Jin Yong 
If you get lost along the way here is the order of the hop.

Materials for gift bag:
Stamp: Christmas Emma from SP & Company
Ink: Memento, Ranger Distress Ink. and Copic Markers
Paper: Cosmo Cricket Merry Berry, and SU Sage Shadow
Acc: Nestabilities Petite Ovals, Fancy Tags, Heirloom Ornament, Cuttlebug Christmas Countdown embossing folder, and a white craft bag.



Oh yes, I almost forgot to mention that starting today Tuesday, Amy Chomas Creations and  SP & Company are having Pre-Black Friday sales. Be sure to check them out.


On to Jin Yong's blog you go.

Thanks for hopping by,
