Eileen Hull & Emerald Creek Blog Hop!

Warm thoughts are unfolding, 

as we begin to enter a festive time of year. Eileen, Kim and The Teams have created a fun blog hop challenge to kick of the American Thanksgiving and Winter festivities.

To play along all you need to do is follow along and comment on every blog. If you play along and link up your own creation using Eileen and Emerald Creek products, you will get 2 bonus entries for the draw. Contest Closes on Sunday November 25th, with the Winner announced Cyber Monday!

Prize includes an Eileen Hull Journal Die and a $50.00 gift certificate to the Emerald Creek Shop.

I created a little Passport Journal using some of Eileen's dies and Emerald Creek's stamps! The snowflake background was stamped and embossed with clear powder before I added the blue ink. Eileen's ColorBox Blends do blend beautifully and the built in sponge applicator is a cinch to use.

Here is the Blog Hop List:
