Holiday Blog Hop + DT CALL!

BEFORE WE START--we'd like you all to know that this blog hop is also a DT CALL!!!  If you're interested in working with us a HOC for a six month term from January through June of 2014, please put DT at the end of your entry name when you link up!!!  We're looking for crafters comfortable in any card making style and it might just be YOU!  You will be contacted by December 18th to know if you've made the team. :)  Also, we will be going to a bi-weekly challenge format in 2014.  Each DT member will just be in charge of one or two cards/projects per month plus commenting.  Please email Mynn at onastampageATyahooDOTcom if you have any other questions!  And now...

Hi, friends, and welcome to the last challenge of our first DT term here at House of Cards!  This month we're doing things a little different.  Our challenge will run FROM DECEMBER 1ST UNTIL DECEMBER 15TH ANY CARD STYLE is welcome and we've got a gorgeous photo inspiration for your crafting enjoyment!

Here's our photo inspiration~

Oh, and did I mention this is a BLOG HOP?!  Yep, and we've got some fabulous sponsors with prizes!  Make sure you leave a comment at each person's blog along the way because the prizes are hidden and we'll be doing random drawings from the blogs where they are hiding! :)  After you're done, make a creation to share with us here, too, for another chance to win!  AND we're lucky to have the design team from Inspired By Stamping as our special guests, too!!!
