"3 Months til Christmas" Blog Hop

Hello.  I am so glad you could come by today for our monthly hop.  Last month I was not able to participate so I am glad to be back :)  If you have arrived from my bff, Shari's blog, then you are in the correct spot.  If not, you will want to go back and see the incredible cards she has created first and then rejoin me here.  If you are new to our hop, let me give you a bit of background.  Two years ago my bff realized that she ran out of time in the busy months of November and December to get her Christmas cards and projects done so she decided to make 2 Christmas things once a month on the 25th to get a head start.  That would give her at least 24 cards/projects completed.  I thought this was a great idea and joined her which led to a small group of us doing it as a hop on the 25th of the month last year.  This year we added a twist ~ a  theme that needs to be followed each month.  I hope you enjoy our "sneak peek" at Christmas and will visit us every month for some inspiration of your own.

Now, on to my cards.  Our theme this month was "REINDEER, SANTA AND/OR ELVES" ~ an interesting choice and one I really had to think about.  Here they are:

Card #1:

Card #2:

All of the supplies for these two cards (minus a few of the embellishments ~ gems, bow on wreath, jingle bell, button) came from the Kraftin' Kimmie Kardmaking Kit.  The stamps used were also from Kraftin Kimmie ~  Santa Baby and  Balancing Elf.  It sure made coordinating things for these cards easy and I would recommend them to all.  These are 6" x 6" cards which come with matching envelopes as well.  

Thanks for joining our hop today.  Now you are off to Mary's blog to see what reindeer, Santa or elves she has used.  Our hop consists of the following ladies in case you get lost along the way:
