Hello everyone!  Hope you are all well today.  I am fighting a cold and as such, I don't feel great and my mojo has gone missing, but I am excited to tell you about 2 EXCITING EVENTS going on today at CHI CHI MEMORIES!!

First, CHI CHI MEMORIES is part of the SUGAR RUSH BLOG HOP for CARD MAKER MAGAZINE!  The hop will be from NOV. 4 (today) - NOV. 6 (Sat.).  Please visit CHI CHI MEMORIES BLOG for the hop.  There is also a FREEBIE available for you in the shop, so make sure you register an account at CCM shop (click on the shop link at the top of the blog) to grab the freebie. The reindeer stocking LIMITED EDITION FREEBIE is only available from November 1st to December 31st, so make sure you grab it before it goes away.  Hint - you could use the FREEBIE in our new SKETCH CHALLENGE #18.

Here is my BLOG HOP card using Jordy from the NEW RELEASE Christmas Set.  The theme of the hop is SUGAR RUSH CHRISTMAS, so we were to use lots of Sparkles:)

I used Basic Grey and K & Co. SP, SU CS, embossing folder from Crafts U Love, Stickles, liquid applique, Copics and Atyou Spicas.  Hope you like it.  Sentiment is from CHI CHI MEMORIES, it comes with the NEW RELEASE CHRISTMAS SET.   I'm really happy at the way this card turned out!!

We also have our NEW SKETCH CHALLENGE #18 starting today and going til Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 11:59pmm PST.  The sketch is SUPER FUN and I can't wait to see what you create for it!!
I'd also LOVE to give a BIG WELCOME to Dee from Dee's Designs.  Dee is now part of our SKETCH CHALLENGE DT - WOOO HOOO!!  If you have a chance, please visit her blog and leave her some LOVE.  You will be amazed by her wonderful projects!!

Here's my take on the sketch

I have included 3 different pictures because there're a couple different things going on with my card.  All DP is Basic Grey.  The tree is paper pieced, colored with Stickles, Copics and Atyou Spicas.  The image of little bear is colored with Copics, Stickles and Atyou Spicas.  All pearls are Prima.  Sentiment is from CHI CHI MEMORIES CHRISTMAS SET as are both the images I used for this card.  Frame, image and sentiment all cut with Nesties.  Ribbons are all from my stash.  Base CS is Papertrey Ink.  Image cut out is daubed with SU old olive.  I hope you like it and that you enjoy the blog hop.  Thanks so much for stopping by!!
The prize for the winner of SKETCH CHALLENGE #18 will receive the TEA PARTY SET - woo hoo!!  Please remember, anyone can enter, but if you want to win, you must use a CHI CHI MEMORIES IMAGE!  Good luck and have fun!

My card for CHI CHI MEMORIES SKETCH CHALLENGE #18 also fits with the following challenges:

PAPER ROMANCE - lots of whatever you want (I used lots of pearls and swirls, and lots of layers)
CCEE STAMPERS - winter scene
STAMPIN' B's - use an animal in a die cut
DIGITAL TUESDAY - digi stamp and framed
STAMPTACULAR SUNDAY - hidden message (my tag)
