12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop with Smeared and Smudged

We'd like to invite YOU to join in this year and participate in our 12 Days of Christmas Smeared and Smudged style event 2011. We're offering up a cool prize at the end, and know that you'll have a blast! How can you do this, you ask? Well, there are a couple of ways to participate this year, and below you find all the details.

12 Days Of Christmas Jolly Blogger (Blogger slots are filled and posted on my left sidebar)

The Rules: The project must be handmade by you and be posted by 9:00 am Pacific Time every scheduled day. The project must be stamped, with either a rubber stamp or digi stamp used somewhere, and must be either Christmas or Winter Holiday themed. To qualify for the prize drawing at the end of the month, you must post a project EVERY SCHEDULED DAY in December. If you miss a day, you will still qualify to receive a survival button, but will not qualify for the prize drawing.

Now I bet you are wondering what Smeared Ink Day is! They are the days that we are challenging you to use only Smeared Ink Stamps on your projects! This is not mandatory, however you will be entered to win a prize from us for using only Smeared Ink stamps on those days!!!

12 Days of Christmas Merry Hopper   (There is still time to play along as a Merry Hopper!)

What You Have To Do:  Hop through each of the 12 Days Blogs that are participating and leave a comment on each project.

The Rules: You must leave a comment on EACH participating blog every scheduled day to qualify for the prize drawing. Your comment should be about the project or something related (ie-no "Here's my comment for today" or "I'm here!"...these types of comments won't count!) If you miss a day or a blog, you will still qualify to receive a survival button, but will not qualify for the prize drawing.

Prize Drawing At the end of the 12 days, we will be drawing for a fabulous prize pack from Smeared Ink that includes one each of our November Release digi sets! (Of course, you won't see them until the release, so pictures will come later in November/December).

Each person who successfully completes the 12 Days as either a Jolly Blogger or a Merry Hopper will receive one entry toward the prize drawing. If you successfully complete both, you will receive two entries. (Meaning if you are a Jolly Blogger and you comment on every blog every day, you have successfully completed both).
