3 Amigos Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos December 2018  Blog Hop Challenge. We are three Friends with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd day of each month we will feature a different product or challenge and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through. 

This Month Our Challenge is a simple one... Christmas Card.  So to make it a little more interesting, we are joining together with Double Trouble!  

Double Trouble Challenge #16 - Let the Troubles Begin!

THING 1 Trouble Maker
says you have one more chance to finish your winter holiday cards in time for mailing. Create something using at least one form of embossing... dry embossing, heat embossing, embossing paste, your choice. Or use them all! 

THING 3 Twisted Sister
says "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!" Include snow, snowflakes, a snowman, etc. on your project. 
Hint: If you include a coffee/tea/cocoa image or sentiment, you may  join in the fun at 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop,  Time is limited on the Coffee Blog Hop so read the details below.
Both of these are OPTIONAL twists but why not double the trouble and include both? You will be awarded an additional chance for each twist in Double Trouble's random prize draw.

So now for MY card...
Oh, and by the way, I am also entering MY Card in the Color My Heart Color Dare #321 TicTacToe using Color Palette for Tis The Season.  The colors I chose are right across the top, Candy Apple, New England Ivy and Charcoal.  I also added Gold and White Daisy from the Palette.  

The Paper is "Tis The Season" from Close to My Heart and the stamp set is the CTMH September Stamp of the Month. The sentiment is Heat Embossed.    

Thanks for stopping by.  Now hop on over to Susan's Blog and Lisa's Blog to see what they have created this month , then over to the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge. We hope you play along!

There are great prizes and no limits to the number of entries. The more entries the better your chances for winning Coffee Lovers' random prizes from over 60 super sponsors!  
"Make it hot, make it now, put a little cream and sugar in, give me coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee" and create a Fall/Winter project to include some sort of coffee, tea or cocoa element. How simple is that?

For inspiration, sing along with Frank Sinatra's The Coffee Song. You'll be glad you did!

Coffee Blog Hop closes at 12:00 midnight Pacific time, Friday, December 7th.
