Winter Blog Hop w/Word Art Wednesday

Hello, everyone, and welcome to the Word Art Wednesday Winter Blog Hop.  You should arrived here by way of Stephanie's Blog, but if not; you can get caught up quickly by visiting the Word Art Wednesday Blog.  There are only eight (8) stops in total, so it's not a terribly long hop; and there are fantastic PRIZES from Emma's Paperie at each stop.  Plus, there's an awesome prize from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps for the challenge itself.  There are LOTS of FUN things happening at Word Art Wednesday.  Here's the prize being offered from my blog.  This pile of mine is continually GROWING, so the winner will receive much more than what you see in this picture.  Emma's Paperie was very generous to us, and we have AWESOME Blog Hop PRIZES as a result of this.  Emma's Paperie is still opened for another week or so if you want to take a look.  Everything is marked down considerably because they're going out of business.
The card I created for this challenge doesn't use the free scripture digi from Word Art Wednesday because my printer wasn't working.  Instead, I use some sweet products from our primary sponsor, Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.  You can enter a total of 15 entries in this three-week challenge (5 per week) to increase your odds of winning the prize from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.  The stamp set I used is called Fall/Winter Season Wreath.  To win the personal prizes donated by Emma's Paperie; just leave a comment on each blog along the way.  As mentioned, there are only 8 stops on this Blog Hop, so it won't take long to finish; and you can win lots of great prizes.

Here's The Blog Hop Order (In Case You Get Lost)

I'm the last stop on the Word Art Wednesday Winter Blog Hop.  I'd really LOVE for you to become a New FOLLOWER on my blog if you're not already following me.  I'm planning to have a BIG give-away if/when I reach 1,000 followers.  I've been "close" for a long time, so I will really celebrate if/when I finally hit that milestone.  I'd sure appreciate having YOU as my newest Follower.
If I do happen to hit 1,000 followers during this Blog Hop, I will add a second prize for the lucky random winner from my blog.  Thanks again for stopping by, and please don't forget to enter the challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  We always LOVE having you join the fun, and I'm always SO grateful to have you share your talents with us.  You could be one of our BIG LUCKY WINNERS.
Have a wonderful week, everyone.  I always appreciate your visits to my blog, and to Word Art Wednesday.  It's a great time to play along, and I thank you again for stopping by today.  You're making cards/art anyway, so....come by and link up with us.

Blessings to you,
Karen

I'm playing along here in these FUN challenges I love:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "Christmas Critters" - This card features the most adorable little Christmas Critters...the darling little deer on the background patterned paper I used.  Yes, They're random; but I thought they were cute.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog - Simon Says "Cold As Ice" so I used the poinsettia, and the adorable little deer who, by the way, are straight from the North Pole.  Just sayin'.
