AmberInk's First Annual Christmas Blog Hop

Are you hungry?  Are you ready to hop?  Today is the First Annual AmberInk Holiday Blog Hop.

If you are coming from Jacki Randolph's blog (Team Brown) then you are at the right place (and hopefully you did not overeat over at Jacki's!)!  If not, then be sure to start at Our Ambassador of Awesomeness, Shannan Teubner's blog and get hopping.

We are hopping today AmberInk style.  That means there is a "fun" (I use the term loosely) challenge involved. Alumni and current torchbearers have all been slaving away in the kitchen (er craft room) to serve you a seven course meal!   See, over at AmberInk, we are given missions and this time around we needed to prepare a 7 course meal for 2.  We tried telling Pam that we don't cook, but alas, she laughed and so we are all cooking up a meal for you. Yes, that is the type of challenge you see everyday - LOL!  It translates to a project with 2 colors and a neutral and 7 different techniques.  Okay, so once I figured out what Pam was talking about, I mixed the following together:  1 iPaper (OMG  I love the Snowflake Lace Hint on kraft), 2 ribbon, 3 dry embossing, 4 stitching, 5 pearl embellies, 6 die cut, and 7 lacey trim.  After stirring for quite awhile, and baking for a long time the following came out of the oven...

 
Did I mention that I love the Snowflake Lace Hint iPaper on kraft?!!!

Be sure to leave a comment today - a few prizes will be given to random comments along the hop!  Plus, head on over to the AmberInklings blog tomorrow as there will be voting on all the creations showcased along today's hop!  Now get hopping...next up is the ubber talented Julia Dunnit of Stamping Ground.  Julia is representing the Pink Team and I am sure she whipped up something super yummy for you!

BTW, my card is based on this week's Mojo Monday Sketch.  I figured I was already confused enough by the blog hop challenge mission, so why not add another layer of complexity with a sketch challenge!
Plus, the Paper Players challenge this week is Christmas!

Agent Foxy Needles

  8. Ahem. Cough Cough Cough. I just spit my tea at the screen. I wish I had more grace in the face of grace. This creation reminds me of this exploding chocolate cake I had Panang once, beautiful at first glance, but full of surprises that make it better with each bite!
