Make Up you Own Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Make Up your own Holiday Blog hop hosted by Karel J!

Here is the goodness:

Karelj is offering an over-all blog candy for those who are hopping along with us. She thought it would be fun to have some holiday-themed candy for this hop--but, of course, made-up holiday items were hard to come by! She decided to do a whole bunch of *regular* holiday themed stamps for you to enjoy. From Fiskars, there is an assorted holiday set; there's an alphabet from All Night Media, a set of 100 plus clear stamps and a storage case from Family Memories, and 5 sets of clear stamps from various dollar bins in big box stores. How to win them? Follow along the blog trail, leaving a comment on each and every blog. On Monday, Karelj will ask her buddy Randy ( to select a blog number (from the list), a day (Saturday is one, Sunday is two), and a comment number from that blog. Please make sure you have left a reliable way to contact you (email is best, in the safe format of **** at **** dot com ) so you can be notified by her personally. If you don't, she’ll have to select another winner!

My family is all about the GAMES!! So we like to celebrate Game day! So in honor of Game day I created a card with a handsome gamer on it! So many cool project to see, so why are you hanging around here? Keep on hoppin! What would your made up holiday be????
