2 Months to Christmas Blog Hop

Hi Crafters,
If you have arrived from Heather's blog you are right on track. If you have just happened upon my blog and would like to complete this hop from the beginning head to Mary's blog.

 If you are a follower of mine you might have noticed that I have taken a bit of a break from blogland. I can't even begin to tell you how busy my life as been lately. There is just so much going on it is all I can do to keep up. I took last month off from the countdown to Christmas blog hop but I'm back this month and so excited to show you some of the cards I have been working on in my new craft room.

I know, I know I still have yet to post pictures of my room but I have been waiting until I am totally done organizing in there (yeah right, do we ever truly finish? lol)! Seriously, though I keep changing things around trying to get the flow better. Soon though, I promise I will take the time and show you my favourite room in our new house!

Here are the cards I created for this month's blog hop:

Everything is SU except the ribbon which is Offray and the floss which is from my stash.
Colours are Real Red and Gumball Green

All itmes used were again SU except hemp and jingle bell which were both from my stash. Oh and I used a Pearl Pen for the gold centres.  
Colours used are Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler

I hope you are having as much fun making your Christmas cards as I am. Both these were ideas that I saw online and changed up a bit to suit my tastes and supplies. Your next stop on this hop is Georgiana's blog!
Happy Crafting!
