8 Months to Christmas Blog Hop

Hi Crafters,
Welcome to the countdown to Christmas Blog Hop! Have you already got a good dose of  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 with an animal on them. For some reason this month I was stumped. I knew I had lots of Cricut cartridges with Christmas animals on them but I was not in a Cricut mood (poor thing is starting to feel neglected I am sure). Instead I dug through my stamps and it was then I discovered I indeed had animals stamps and on top of that ones that had been yet to be inked. Doesn't it feel good to use something you bought forever ago. Totally justifies the purchase even if it is months later lol. I did have to do a little internet searching on these stamps to get the juices flowing. I scraplifted a couple ideas and in the end even used my Cricut for a layer(not so neglected after all).

Your next stop is Sally's blog. Enjoy the rest of the hop and happy crafting!

P.S. Only 9 weeks until baby arrives :)
