SECRET phrase is in play, collect each word/s from each hop stop. Entry instructions will be at the FSS Challenge BLOG. Entries will be accepted for 2 weeks - until Friday December 2nd midnight EST. Winners will be announced Saturday December 3rd.

The Hop Starts HERE.
If you have arrived from Vicki's blog, you are right on track!

I went with a clean and simple card featuring images from the Christmas Poinsettia Lantern set.
I printed the script images and then I overprinted the lantern image.  This gave me the beautifully pre-colored background and candle glow.  I then fussy cut a lantern and applied it over the *scripted* lantern...this adds a touch of dimension to the card. 

Finishing touches were photo corners embossed by the Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder, some Martha Stewart Snowflake punches and gems/pearls.

The word you are collecting from me is SEASON!
Your final stop on the hop is the FSS Challenge Blog
