5 Months Until Christmas Blog Hop!

Well, it's official...we are past the half way mark until Christmas! I feel like time is just ticking, the 25th seems to roll around so quickly each month or maybe I just need to stop and smell the roses once in a while :)

I am so glad you are here for our monthly Christmas Blog hop that we do on the 25th of every month. A few of us do this hop to get a head start on our Christmas cards as November and beyond are just so busy with all the prep.

If you arrived here from creative Heather's blog then you are in the right place. If you happened to stumble upon me, please start at crafty Shari's blog and hop along to see everyone's creations. I will post the blog hop order at the bottom of my post.

Our theme this month was "non-traditional Christmas colours" and I think I did accomplish that. I hope you enjoy my cards and let me know what you think.
