Welcome to Cuttlebug Challenge Festival of Lights Blog Hop

Please Scroll Down For New Posts

Beth here and I am Welcoming you to our First ever Festival of Lights from the fabulous team at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog!
The party kicked off over on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog with a map of the participating Design Team , if you get lost on the way no worries, just check the DT off the map. 
In addition to the fabulous projects, we have decided to make this party the most fun ever, by hiding 2 treasures along the hop! 
Two selected Designers will draw a random winner from the comments left on her blog in the hop, But of course, it wouldn’t be a treasure hunt if you knew which blog is hiding the treasure, right?
One winner will receive a $30 gift certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps! 

And the other will get a free year subscription to Technique Junkie Sponsored by Pat Huntoon. 
So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win, and add the Cuttlebug blinkie to your blog!!   
Ps the more comments you leave the better chances you have at winning :)   
 Now for my project this week a illuminated glass block which I am also doing a tutorial on at noon today over at Cuttlebug Challenge so be sure and stop by and let me know what you think. Stamp I used was from Stubby Stampers

with lights
Now before I let you leave I just want to share my favorite part of the holidays is all the gorgeous lights decorations and watching the looks on my grandkids faces when we take them to see them. Please share with me what your favorite is.

Beautiful!!!

My favorite part of the Christmas season was always the scent of a real Christmas tree. Now that I live in FL I have an artificial tree. So, my second favorite would be setting up my Christmas village.

Loz (Aus) said...

Your tile is so pretty! I love the snowman!! My fav part of Christmas is the time spent with family, lounging around after having stuffed ourselves silly with food before venturing out into the sweltering heat for a tradional backyard cricket game!!
