Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop  
~ CS Divas’ Mansion Style ~


This hop will take place December 1st through December 12th and will be full of wonderful ideas and inspiration to get you well on your way of creating all of those beautiful Christmas projects on your to-do lists. 
There will be one project posted each day and each day will be hosted by a different Diva DT member.

This is an awesome way to get a lot of your Christmas cards and scrapbook layouts finished, home decorations completed,and maybe even be inspired to create something using a new technique that you have never tried. 

There will be a wide array of projects, and of course, some fabulous Blog Candy along the way.  

We have been honored to have a few sponsors offer some wonderful prizes for this hop.  

First, let us introduce Julie K to the Mansion.  
Julie K has a wonderful blog at A Little Bit of Bling.  She has recently just opened her new store, 3 Girl JAM, where she sells her gorgeous hand-dyed crinkle ribbon.  
Stop by her blog and her store to see her creations, talent, and wonderful products.
BIO:  We are a small family oriented company ran by me (Julie) and my two daughters (Avery and Mackenzie).  We are 3 girls dedicated to bringing you a high quality hand-dyed ribbon that you will enjoy crafting with- as much as we do!  We'd love to hear your comments and suggestions, so please stop by our site at

3 Girl JAM is offering one lucky Grand Prize Winner:
6 bundles of her Hand-Dyed Crinkle Ribbon (that's 12 colors and 48 yards of ribbon)

Next, let us introduce Teri to the Mansion. 
Teri is the fabulous artist behind the Delicious Doodles Official Blog, Delicious Doodles Challenges (every Friday) and the Delicious Doodles Shop where you can see all of her gorgeous and unique Digital Stamps.  
And now, some of her images are available in Rubber Stamps at Sweet Pea Stamps.  
BIO: Delicious Doodles is a relatively young company with myself, Teri, as the Sole Trader. I have doodled and sketched all of my life, but only started selling my images in the Autumn of 2009.

I design and hand/mouse-draw all of the images that are sold in the DeliciousDoodles Shop. Some are cutesie animals, some are sketched flowers, there are a few men's images, some fantasy items and also some 'darker' images featuring Vampires, skulls and Gothic stuff, something for everyone! 
Delicious Doodles also has its own Challenges on blogger and a shop blog page featuring inspiration from the Design Team.

And now you can find my images at Sweet Pea Stamps as Rubber Stamps too!

I hope you enjoy using your Delicious Doodles images!
