2 Months Until Christmas Blog Hop!!!!

Yikes...did you just see that title? 2 months until the BIG day...woohoo!!!!

I am so glad you could join us for this oh so fun blog hop that we have on the 25th of every month. We show 2 Christmas projects each month in hopes of being that much more organized with our cards by the time December hits.

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

This month we had a photo inspiration to gather our creative juices from. Here is the photo we used....

This picture is so warm and inviting that it just makes me want to curl up with a good book.

Here are the 2 cards that I made...enjoy!
 
Card 1
 
 
for the close up...
 
 
for the inside... 

 
Card 2
 
 

I thoroughly enjoyed making both of these cards. The first card I used a spellbinders die to cut out the window...just love how pretty this card is. The second card I used one of my favourite stamp sets. It is actually a stamping gear set by inkadinkadoo. I used the branch stamp to create the Christmas tree using 2 different momento ink pads. I then added some red glitter ritz as tinsel and of course some ornaments to complete it. Super fun and easy card to make!

I hope you have enjoyed my cards and get some inspiration to continue or in some cases begin to create all of the cards you need this Holiday Season.
 
Hugs,

Oooh Mary these are great. I love the first one, especially the design and red and white is always a favourite for me. I would love a Christmas tree like that one. Two gorgeous cards.

These are both so lovely. I like how you used the Spellbinder to cut an opening in the card and frame it with a branch wreath. The tree stamp using the gear set is amazing. Hugs!
