StampTV / Center Stage Spotlight DT Blog Hop!

Welcome to our first Center Stage Spotlight Design Team Blog Hop!
Blog Hop begins November 4th 10pm CST / 11pm EST
Jessica Fick, the Design Team Coordinator for GinaK Designs has issued a challenge to all of the past and present CSS team members to make a Christmas card with one of these sketches:

   


I used Magic of Christmas Stamp Set for my card.
You can view the a photo of the stamp set and project details at the bottom of the post.
Here is another card I designed using this set.



We know you're going to LOVE what everyone has designed for us tonight!  So check out some of the other blogs listed below!


First, here are the links for GinaK's Current CSS Team Members:

Some of GinaK's Senior Design Team Members and Illustrators wanted to get in on the fun tonight too:

along with Nina Brackett's Guest Designer: Lisa Hjulberg

All of these gorgeous cards from the entire team will be added to the StampTV gallery throughout the next few days with the tag cssjf1 (which stands for center stage spotlight jessica fick 1)

These sketches are also our sketch challenge for this week, so be sure to check out all the information in the discussion in our Challenge group over on StampTV Thursday morning.  We'd love to see your cards with the sketch too!
