Christmas Blog Hop for SCH

Good morning and thank you for joining us here at Sugar Creek Hollow  for our Christmas Blog Hop.  We are going to play the "Secret Word" game today.  You will need to collect a letter at each blog and then post your answer at the last stop.

We will be awarding a $25.00 gift certificate to one lucky winner!

I am sharing with you today the new Christmas Digi Stamps I used entitled:
 Black Sleigh (it comes in different colors)
and
Christmas Dove
 and
 a Vintage Merry Christmas tag

Using these gorgeous images I made a little  basket to hold some small greeting cards for a gift.  Let's take a look!
 This is the front of the basket

This is the back of the basket

Each side was decorated with some adorable vintage postcards. Along with the design paper and Tracy's images this turned out to be the perfect gift for my neighbor;  she helped out with the horses while I was in California. Here is a shot of each of the sides. 

For the inside I made some cards with the Christmas Dove on the front.
If you have figured out my secret letter, leave me a comment telling me what it is and move on to Julie's blog.   She has the next letter for you.  If you have arrived at my blog first, you will need to start at the beginning to get all of your letters in the proper order.  Here is the order of our blog hop. Good Luck!!
