Phindy's Place Christmas Cuties Blog Hop - and OWH Challenge


Welcome to Phindy's Friday Challenge and take a look at this sneak peek of the new Christmas Cuties - just wait till you see the real thing, they are just gorgeous! We have lots of information in this post, so get yourself a cuppa and read all about it!

Its time for the PHINDY'S PHABULOUS CHRISTMAS CUTIES BLOG HOP!  These oh-so-cute images you have been waiting for, go on sale in Phindy's Shop today and we're celebrating their launch with an amazing blog hop around the DT, where you will see not one but TWO -  count 'em, two - Cuties used in projects on each blog.  We'll also have TWO winners of the blog hop!  One random winner of the blog hop will receive TWO Christmas Cutie images of their choice and there will be an extra prize of another image for a comment picked from one of the DT's blogs - but which blog?  What do you have to do to win? Visit the DT's blogs and be sure to leave a comment at each one. Also, each blog will have a word that you need to collect as you hop along. Put the words together to make a sentence and leave a comment, including your sentence, in the comments below to be in the draw to win.

 Here is a full list of the participating blogs in the correct order:

Phindy's Place Challenge Blog and your final word is PROJECTS!!

Our regular challenge this week is to make a card for Operation Write Home  OWH is an organization that sends blank handmade greeting cards for all occasions to deployed service members to write home on. Please check their website for their very specific guidelines. If you are a non-US member you can make a holiday, birthday, Christmas or anniversary card. Please check if there is a local good cause in your country, such as Post Pals that you can support with your entry. THIS WEEK ONLY YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE A PHINDY'S PLACE IMAGE. This challenge is open to ALL images, so we are hoping for huge participation. Let's show our support to OWH!  Please link your blog post to the inlinkz labeled "OWH challenge" located at the end of this post.

The winner of the Challenge will be chosen by Random.org and will receive an $8 Gift Certificate to the Phindy's Place store. The Pick of the Week wins a 20% off voucher for the Phindy's Place store. Don't forget that once a month we will choose an overall winner from the weekly winners and they will be offered a Guest position on the DT - and of course a free image from Phindy's Place to use for that week's challenge!

Now for a little inspiration from the DT..........
