Tobi's Christmas Cuddle -- YNS Holiday Preview Party HOP !!


Welcome to the YNS Holiday Preview Party Hop!
We are so excited to have you join us as we preview our
new holiday digital stamps along with some very special guests!
I have asked 12 of my crafting buddies to join us for this holiday hop.  
Each of these ladies has inspired me in many ways to be a better crafter 
so I know that you will be absolutely delighted with each and every stop!!
We are previewing 8 new digital images by the talented Penny & Laurence of
Omnia Designs which will be available on Sunday, December 1st at 8:00pm EST.

Would you like to earn an EXCLUSIVE FREE YNS digi stamp!?

If you start here and hop to each stop, leaving comments as you go, you can 
pick up letters along the way which will help you build a phrase.
Once you have all of the letters, please email the phrase to 
Karen at Your Next Stamp 
and she will email you a code for an
EXCLUSIVE HOLIDAY IMAGE from YNS!! 

Please leave some lovely comments along the way for our designers, as there 
will also be 10 randomly selected winners from the comments
 that will each WIN ONE FREE DIGI of their choice!! 

For my card, I have used the adorable "Tobi's Christmas Cuddle".
This card is for a little sweetie that is turning 2 this year right around the holidays
and I knew that I needed to use some super girlie colors for this criss cross card!!  


I have used some Sparkly Fluff again on my card as I just love it!!
Huge shout out to Tracy C. who told me about this magical and fun stuff and 
a big thank you to Danni for sending me the little jar of white for the trim on the hat!!


Here are the colors that I used:
The colors for the bear are in the upper left quadrant, 
the colors for the girl are in the bottom 2 quadrants,
and I used the warm gray tones for shadows. 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
