"1 Month Til Christmas" Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the last monthly blog hop before the big day.  I am the first stop on our blog hop today.  Our fearless leader, Shari was not able to do a post for today as she has not been feeling well. And the usual order is also a little confused.  Sally is not posting this month either so please go to Sandy's blog immediately following Sara instead of the link she has provided.  The correct blog hop order is on THIS post only so come back here as you won't want to miss anyone.  The other ladies have posted our usual list.

 Well, I have a confession for those of you who visited last month ~ I never did finish the cards I had started.  But I have made 2 new ones following the theme for this month to show you today.  Let's back up a little for those of you who are new to visiting this hop.  Every month on the 25th a very talented group of ladies headed by my BFF, Shari, showcase 2 Christmas projects all year long.  This gives us a good head start on our Christmas cards or projects before the busy season of the holiday begins.  We have a theme to follow each month ~ for November it is "SILVER AND/OR GOLD".  My cards are one of each.
