10 Months to Christmas Blog Hop

Hi Crafters,
It's that time of the month again...the 25th! Which means a countdown to Christmas blog hop filled with Christmas inspiration! I have so much fun each month making two Christmas cards. If you have arrived from Kerry's blog then you are right on track. If you would like to start from the beginning then you want to head to Shari's blog.

This month our theme was to create two cards using the colours red/white and one other colour. For my first card I used mostly white and red and added just the smallest touch of silver with my bell. On my second card I went totally traditional and did red/white/green. The details for both of my cards are listed below them.

We also have a guest designer this month, Janis from - She is the last stop on the hop so be sure to check her out too!

Your next stop is Sally's blog. Have a wonderful hop and if you have created any Christmas cards lately leave me a link I would love some fabulous inspiration from you!
Happy Crafting!
