"4 Months Till Christmas Blog Hop!"

Well here we are again its the 25th of the month. Which means its time for our monthly Christmas Blog Hop. Every month on the 25th of the month my friend Shari, a few other crafty ladies and myself we get together for a fun blog hop to show off two Christmas cards each, one made using a die-cut of some sort and one made using a color medium. 

This is our way of getting a head start on the Christmas card rush.

If you are following the hop you should have arrived here from  'Tara's  Blog, but if not be sure to start back at the beginning at Kerry's Blog so that you do not miss out on the amazing cards the ladies made to show to you. I will have a full list of the blog hop order near the end of my post. 

This month we have a special guest Laura from a very great store if you haven't been its a place you must check out, it is craft heaven. 

Well lets get this party started...
