5 Months to Christmas Blog Hop

Hi Everyone and welcome to the 5 Months to Christmas Blog Hop,
If you have arrived here from  Sally's blog you are in the right spot.

Well, I bet a few of you who have been following my blog regularly thought I would not be participating this month because of the big move...well it just so happens I am the queen of planning ahead! I was able to get my cards created before I had to pack up my scrapbooking room!
If you are new you might be wondering how this monthly blog hop works.... there is a group of us crafters that have committed to creating two Christmas cards and (one die cut and one stamped image) posting them on the 25th each month.
Thanks for stopping by today. Shari's blog is your next stop.
Happy Crafting!
P.S. Right now I am at my parents house borrowing their wireless. I hope to have internet again soon so I can visit all my wonderful blogs friends again. See you soon!
