" 4 Months till Christmas Blog Hop "

Well here we are again only 4 months till Christmas...Wow it will be here before we know it, I can't believe how fast the last 7 months have gone.

This time next month I will be chilling on the beach on Vaca with my parents :D . I am very much looking forward to this WELL needed time away.

I have had a lot of changes in my life the last few months so it was nice to sit down in my new work space and let everything leave my mind and relax to make these cards. I really enjoyed this months cards and am very very happy on how they turned out.

Well if you have been following our little hop you know why we are all here :). If you just happened along my blog please join the fun and follow along our little fun hop a few of us crafty ladies put on the 25th of each month to get a head of the Christmas card rush every year.

If you have arrived here from the talented Mary's Blog you are in the right place. If you happened across my blog and would like to start from the start please head over to my dearest friend Shari's blog :D she is sure to have some great inspiration to share with you. I will have a full list of the hop order listed at the bottom of my post.

Well us ladies have been challenging ourselves to making two Christmas crafts each month following the months theme. This month is Inspired by a Christmas song or carol.

Here are my crafty creations.

But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow"
