Baby, It's Cold Outside!


For the 3rd day of Christmas, how about a little Blog Hop to get the blood pumping? Cause you know when it is cold outside, you better get a move on to warm you up. Cold is something Cari Locken and I (Liz Qualman) know only too well - Cari being from Canada and me from Colorado. We get it! So to kick off our little hop, we have a challenge for you with a little motivation to get you going.
How about the entire Cottage Christmas collection just for two quick hops and a comment back here? Sounds like a great deal...right? Below are a few sneak peeks to get you thinking about our theme, but you have to visit both Cari's and my blog to determine what it is for sure. Please leave a comment on each of our blogs and then report back here to tell us what you think it is. Easy as hot chocolate, marshmallows and whipped cream on a cold winter day?
Here's a little tease from Cari to get you thinking about our theme, " I just love this time of the year. There’s so many exciting things happening and I find that we just get so busy with all the various activities & events that we forget to slow down and just enjoy being with each other. So, I created a project that will help me remember each & every day, all those special events, large or small, throughout this holiday season."
A little teaser from me - I am always amazed at how fast the time goes and how quickly winter is upon us here in Colorado. We are already on the ski slopes, putting up Christmas trees and lights and getting ready to hunker down and stay snuggled away from the cold. This project is a holiday reminder about the life we are living here in the Rocky Mountains. There is also a full tutorial on my blog and below.
Come visit us:

But Wait!!! For an added bonus, Teresa Collins is featuring the Imaginisce i-rock on her blog today as part of her Holiday countdown. Hop on over there and see what she has been up to and grab another opportunity to win some goodies!
