A little bit of info about our hop if you are new.....on the 25th of each month a group of my fellow crafters and I make 2 Christmas cards, one using a die cut machine and one using a stamped image and a colouring medium. To get the most out of our hop, you need to start at the beginning at Sally's blog. If you just arrived from Kerry's blog you are in the right place. I will have the entire order of the hop at the end of this post and we have 2 new girls joining us this month so let's welcome Sara and Tara B. with some love while you are hopping.
I have my coloured card first. It looks very much like cards I have posted last Christmas but I wanted to reproduce this card to send to a few relatives this year.
Card Stock ~ Bazzill and Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ Creative Memories
Image ~ Kraftin' Kimmie "O Holy Night"
Sentiment ~ Kraftin' Kimmie "Nativity Sentiments"
Colorbox Chalk ~ Creamy brown
Button and Twine ~ "Use it Up" inventory
My second card is a new die cut creation. While I was making it in the 100 degree weather I was hoping it would make me feel cool.....not really.....but the card is cool!! It is more of a "Winter" card than a Christmas card but I do have some people in my life that I like to give a card to at holiday time who do not actually celebrate Christmas.
