"10 Months Til Christmas" Blog Hop

Good Morning, my friends.  It is that time of the month again...the time when our team shares our Christmas projects with you....the 25th of February.  Ten months today is Christmas.  So grab a cup of coffee (or your beverage of choice) and let's get started.  If you arrived from my BFF, Shari, then you are in the correct spot.  If not, go back to her blog to start at the beginning.  I will have a complete list of the hop order at the end of the post in case you get lost along the way.  I would like to welcome our special guest designer, Janis, who gave me my first start on a design team and has become a wonderful friend. 

As you recall, we are showcasing two Christmas projects each month following a certain theme.  For February our theme is red, white plus one other colour.  Here are my two cards:

One is traditional red, white and green and the other is red, white and brown.  I tried to incorporate my fave colour of pink with red and white but it just didn't work for Christmas.
