"9 Months till Christmas Blog Hop"

Welcome to our monthly blog hop where a group of us creative ladies challenge ourselves each month to create 2 cards/projects to get a head start on the Christmas Card rush.

Last year my great friend Shari and her bff challenged themselves to create 2 cards one with a colour medium and one using die cuts and punches and that was the beginning and formation of our lovely group of ladies. We all decided we were tired of rushing to create our Christmas cards each year. This year we have challenged our selves to create two cards or projects that follow a specific theme that is given for each month. This month's theme is Mainly Green.

Before we get to my cards if you have arrived here from friend Mary's Blog then you are in the right place if you have just happened upon my blog and would like to start from the beginning then please head over to my very great friend Shari's blog. If you happen to get lost along the way I will post the blog hop order at the end of my post.

Each month we will have a Guest Designer join in our fun this month it is Sandy Smith she will be your last stop on today's hop.
