8 Months Until Christmas Blog Hop

Hi Crafters,
I'm back!!! I enjoyed my break very much but I missed blogland and all my crafty friends! Thanks to everyone who sent me sweet comments and emails over the past month. I loved hearing from all of you! Today is a special day...not only am I posting again but I am also taking part in a blog hop! The 8 Months Until Christmas Blog Hop. I am the last stop on the blog hop so if you would like to start at the beginning you will want to head to Georgiana's blog. Each person on the hop today has created 2 Christmas cards to share (one colouring an image and one using a die cut). We will have this blog hop once a month all year! Just think of all the Christmas cards I am going to be able to make in advance this year. I will be so less stressed come December :)  I hope you have enjoyed the blog hop today and are inspired to start your own Christmas cards earlier this year. They truly are fun to make all year round! Below are the two Christmas cards I made this month.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Adorable cards Tara! So glad that you had a great honeymoon and are back to your blog. I see that you have been a bit disheartened with blogging. I get a little overwelmed with it sometimes too and then I remember why I started it and it was just for fun. It is always nice to get comments but I know that sometimes I am not very good at leaving comments. I am tired and I just want to browse. It doesn't mean that people aren't enjoying what you make because you are very talented. Can't wait to see more of your creations. Take care.

I am glad to see you come back to Blogland - you have been missed! Both cards are fabulous - love that little snowman and I love how whimsy the second one is -- Great job on both! S:)

I too am hoping to be back to blogging soon... My new job has somewhat sidelined my hobby!
