1 Month till Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to our 1 month till Christmas Blog hop. You ask how can it be but yes everyone that is correct only 1 more month till the big man him self comes to visit. Hope everyone has started the beloved Christmas shopping only 29 shopping days left :). 

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 Christmacards. 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 from the very talented and my very good friend Shari's Blog then you are in the right place :). If you just happened across my blog or just came by to visit and would like to start from the beginning please head over to the lovely and also very talented Heather's Blog.

Again I have chosen to do two colored cards with my Copic's . I find coloring very relaxing takes me away to a very calm and happy place :)
