Hello, friends!  Welcome to July at 52CCT!  We've got a super fun surprise for you this month--WE'RE DOING A BLOG HOP!!!  The hop will run from today (July 5th) until July 31st at noon GMT.  Winners will be announced by August 6th.  AND THERE ARE PRIZES HIDDEN ALONG THE WAY, so make sure to do the whole hop and link up a project here!

So, what do you need to do to participate and have a chance to win?!  Leave a comment at each stop along the way (including this post) and then make a Christmas creation based on one or all of the following prompts and then link it up below!


Here is the hop order~
You are here. ---> 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown <---You are here.

And here are the prompts~
(Choose one, two, three, or all four!)




Four different shades of pink from lightest to darkest, grey and light green.






Thank you for coming by to leave a comment!  Don't forget--leave a comment at each stop for multiple chances to win honors and prizes!  Your next stop will be Jacqueline's blog!  Merry hopping!


Please make sure to follow these rules when you play along with us here at 52CCT! :)

*Please read the challenge requirements carefully before creating your card. We will never delete any submissions that do not follow our challenge rules; however, only cards that meet the requirements will be considered by the Design Team for our weekly Top Honors and Honorable Mention voting. 

*Please link back to our blog in your post so that others can join in the fun.
 
*We would love it if you added our button to the side of your blog.
 
*Please make sure to link to your POST, not your blog.
 
*Please make sure NOT to back link. Your card must not have been posted to your blog before the date of this challenge.
 
*In order to be considered for Top Honor or Honorable Mention, you must link up by July 31st at Noon GMT.
 
*You are free to combine this challenge with up to 10 other challenges.
 
*We'd really appreciate it if you'd turn off word verification so that we can comment more easily! We know a lot of you do this for safety, but it takes a very long time to comment when verification is activated, and you may lose your comments from us... just sayin'. ;)

What a great blog hop you've organized for us! I love the great variety of designs using the same sketch, and you all did a great job with the color, stash and recipe challenges as well. I'm very tempted to try and make a card for each category, 4 cards in a month will definitely improve the size of my Christmas card pile!
Well done!
Ps: I believe there's one link missing...

Meg - sorry about that! My spam catcher has a tendency to flag comments from outside of the U.S. I have to approve them manually, which is what I've just done with your comment. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on my card! :)

I wasn't able to leave a comment on Patricia's blog either. Margaret

What fun! An unexpected blog hop! Fantastic idea to have four challenges to chose from as well. Great inspiration from the DT. I left comments all along the way where I could. There was one link that didn't seem to be working so I couldn't leave a comment for that DT member.

Ema M said...

Never mind! I was able to leave the comment after all. It was Blogger just being a booger! lol Thanks for such a fun and inspirational blog hop!
