4th Annual Season's Givings Blog Hop + Giveaways!!!


Happy New Year and welcome to the Season's Givings Blog Hop! Latisha Yoast started this annual hop three years ago to celebrate the spirit of giving over the holidays and I'm thrilled to be part of it again this year. Every single company or designer on the list below has a giveaway! All you need to do is visit their blogs and leave a comment. Grab your favourite beverage, a snack or two, and start hopping!


Using the MISTI stamping tool, I was able to make a gift card set in no time at all! I cut all the white panels, positioned the facing pandas and sentiment on the inside cover, inked them up and stamped them all in the exact same position. So cool!


This set was for friends who just had a baby and I thought some thank you cards would be really handy! Of course, I had to impose my love of pandas on them. ;) I used a rainbow of card bases so they can choose based on the recipient's tastes.


Here's the full list of hop participants:

  Emily Leiphart  

  Giveaway Details  

For my giveaway, you have until 11:59 p.m. EST on Friday, January 8, 2016 to leave a comment for your chance to win the following products. I will announce the winner via Random.org on my blog the weekend of January 9-10th. Please remember to check back here to see if you're the lucky winner!





I hope you all have an amazing New Year filled with love, happiness and crafty goodness. Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love my misti. I made 125 holders for a picture - these will be given out at a high tea at the end of the month. It was so easy to get all 125 stamped level and if the ink was too faint - to re-stamp.
Wonderful idea.
thanks for offering a great gift and for sharing all year long.
Happy New Year
