Secret Santa Blog Hop

HO, HO, HO friends!

or you can just scroll down the page!

Welcome to the Scrapbook Blessings Club Secret Santa Blog Hop!

Merry Christmas to you all from the SBC Design Team. We are so excited because Santa is taking a mini- break in the preparations for his annual Christmas Eve debut.  He came by for a visit and hopped over to each of the Design Team's blogs.  The good news is that he said none of us are on the naughty list!  And, he did leave some presents just for you, our followers.  Its a secret though! We don't know which blogs have the presents, but I do know he picked two of us, yeah!!!  All you have to do is follow at, hop over at each blog, and leave a comment.

So here is a card I did for Santa! He got a big kick out of it!

To create the chimney, I used the letterpress technique. This was our previous challenge that finished up yesterday and you can find the video tutorial at the SBC blog. I used stickles for "snow" and Santa, ummm, lower half is a chipboard scrap that I took off a package and recycled.

Also, here is an easy card that I did with the kiddos, But what makes this so special is that we had a "card party- play date".  My sister and her family are in Ethiopia as missonaries for the next two years. So this is the first year without them. 

We set up Skyp and we gathered around the dining room table while at the same time, they gathered around theirs. It was the best play date ever!!!

Here they are in Africa, we are on the computer (even though it kept dropping the call, lol)  It was 7pm their time and noon here in Ohio. 

So your next stop is Jennyfer's Blog and by the way there is ... 11 days left till Christmas!

Here is the entire line up for you to follow:
