Double the fun!

Good morning friends!  I must apologize for posting late today.  Just when I thought we had our new dog figured out (scroll down to see photos) at night I found we were wrong and I ended up sleeping longer than I had anticipated.


Today is double the fun as my card layout is for this week's Sweet Stop AND for the 12 Day of Christmas blog hop with Doodle Pantry.  If you are following along with the DP Blog hop and came here from Dawn's blog then you are on the right track.  If you want to start at the beginning click HERE to be taken to the Doodle Pantry blog.  When you are done here be sure to hop on over to Sarah's blog!  Please note the DP blog hop officially starts at Noon EST.

So, what is this blog hop all about?  Well, just one of the cutest and most versatile digi sets that Doodle Pantry released on the first.  It is called 12 Days of Christmas.  The images are cute for lots of things like tags, little gifties and such but I used the 12 Drumming Drummer on my card as it will be for my son for Christmas this year.  This set comes in color and outlines and is only $4.50!  Now, you have until the 8th to see all the fun images the DT has made but you only need to post your name/e-mail on the linky on the DP blog in order to be qualified to win!  Winners will receive $10 credit to the DP store...yay!

If you didn't know, the 12 Days of Christmas are actually after December 25th until Epiphany on January 6th.  Now, I know I made a card today but I actually intend on making a tag with these images and giving a gift to my husband each day for the 12 Days of Christmas.  Fun stuff!

Okay, now I know you want to see what others have made with the Sweet Stop Sketch this week, too so I'm linking you up below to their blogs:
  

Well, have fun hopping around and seeing all the amazing work of the Doodle Pantry and Sweet Stop Design Teams and enjoy your Saturday!
