9 Months to Christmas Blog Hop

Hi Crafters,
Welcome to the countdown to Christmas Blog Hop! Are you ready for a hop filled with Christmas inspiration! 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 Christmas projects using mostly the colour green. As soon as I read this theme the Grinch flashed into my mind! I just knew one of my projects would include this famous Christmas character! Below my cards are the details for both.

We also have a guest designer this month, Sandy. 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 remember getting a early start on your Christmas cards feels awesome!
Happy Crafting!
