How to: celebrate the blog hop

Hello Blogland, how are you doing? Ready for X-mas?
We have a very special challenge today at
The theme is
but that's not all!
We are making a BLOG HOP! YAY!
You know the rules: all you have to do is to hop from one blog to the other and leave a comment on every one. There are prizes all around, and so here is
a suprize pack of crafty goodies: laces, ribbons and pearls! How cool is that?

Here's the list of the blogs to hop:

Of course there is a project, that you should enter with, just like on every challenge.
Here's my DT card for this challenge - and you know what? This is my 50th card for Crafty Creations Challenges!!!
This card is a special one, because I've made it for my close friend, who runs a fish company (they are selling fishes in bulk). That's why I placed a shark on the card. The digi is a free coloring page and you can find it HERE. It's colored with Promarkers.
This card is quite simple, but I kept the traditional colors and the background paper is probably one of the first scrapbook papers I've ever bought.
The sentiment says 'Are you ready for the X-mas feast?' It is also necessary to mention, that there is a tradition here in Poland, that we eat fishes for the X-mas Eve's dinner.
Thank you for visiting my blog! Now hop to another fab creation from my DT Ladies!
I would like to enter some challenges, too: colors from the photo
