2 Months till Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to our 2 Months till Christmas Blog Hop... Yes only 2 months till Santa comes to visit  Has anyone started their Christmas shopping yet? I have well sort of I saw a couple things that were on the list and grabbed them when I had the chance.

Well by now most of you get the idea of our little hop. If your new to this hop then here is a little bit about the hop. My very talented friend Shari decided to start this hop to help us all get a head start on our Christmas cards. Each month a group of us crafty ladies get together and make two cards to get that jump start to the Christmas card rush. Normally we make one card with a color medium of our choice and one made using a die cut of some kind. But this month since we are so close to the Christmas season Shari has decided that the rules have changed that we just need post two Christmas creations of our choice.

If you have arrived here from Mary's you are in the right place. If you happen to come across my blog by chance and want to join in the fun please head back to Mary's blog so you can start from the beginning.

So lets get started. I decided to do two colored cards just because I LOVE playing with my Copic's. Can you say heaven in a marker :) .

My first card I used one of my New Magnolias ( another one of my Favorites i love my Mag's )
