Christmas blog hop with Totally Ladybug Tuesday!

Yowsa - can it really be our 7th challenge on Ladybug Crafts Ink?!  It's flown by and it's been so much fun along the way!  This week we are celebrating with a Christmas Blog Hop...and it's a beauty cos each DT member is getting into the season for goodwill and has gift to give to some lucky winners!! 

But more of that blog hop details in a mo' - onto the challenge!  Our uber talented Guest Designer Jovita is challenging us with the theme "Winter Wonderland". Here is my card...





I would love to see your creations on this theme!  And not only is there the usual weekly challenge prize, there are an additional 11 prizes to be won on the blog hop!!  So you have 2 chances to win a prize...
  1. Enter the Winter Wonderland Challenge
  2. Take part in the hop and display the blog hop banner on your blog
But of course, we couldn't make it that easy for you!  There's a little twist!  As you go along you will see that each DT has a question for you ... just answer the question and take a note of the first letter of your answer and it will spell a word.  When you have finished, email us at lcichallengeblog@aol.com with the word you have spelt...(hint, hint - it's got something to do with Christmas - of course!). 

And here is my gift to one lucky winner - a set of CC Designs Spring Sentiments (already mounted) and two wraps of striped baker twine (I'm lovin' this stuff!)...


My question for you is...The 3 Kings gave 3 presents on Jesus' birth date. Two of them were frankincense and myrrh but was the third gift?


So you now need to hop over to Kerry to see her fabby creation and get your next letter and if you get lost just pop back to the challenge blog here to see the order of the blog hop!

The blog hop finishes next Monday 20 December at 9am GMT.  Have fun!
