3 Months Til Christmas Blog Hop & Giveaway


We're so excited that you are joining us for our Christmas Blog Hop. We have each created 2 Christmas cards, one stamped and/or colored and the other using a die cut of some sort. We do this on the 25th of every month so that we won't be scrambling to make all of our cards during the Christmas season.

I hope you'll visit everyone's blog and get inspiration from their cards and leave them some love. If you like what you see please follow so you don't miss out.

If you have arrived here from the talented Shari's blog then you are in the right place! If you arrived at my blog by chance or to visit, please start our blog hop at Shari's blog so that you get to see everyone's amazing Christmas cards.


Here's a really quick and simple card to make.  Please watch the video to see how I made this card.
 
Everything I used to make this card is listed in the video! Hope you enjoy. 
This is the second card I made for this hop. I got the inspiration off of You Tube from Logans Crafty Momma you can watch her original video. I really loved her idea of making this wreath out of a Martha Stewart Branch Punch. I did cut a wreath pattern from my Cricut that is under the punches. It was so simple that I made 3 cards!!
I did add some Glimmer Mist to the branches. It does look like a real mini wreath!. 
 
 
What's a blog hop without some candy?? I have some Christmas goodies to give away. This is open to US & Canada Residents only, due to shipping cost. I LOVE the paper in the MME Happy Holiday pack. You have two chances to win!
 
1. You must be a follower of my blog, leave a comment.
 
2. Put this picture on your sidebar with a link back to here or post about this giveaway on your blog, leave a comment that you've done so.
 
 Ends 10/19 I will post a winner on 10/20.

Good Luck!!
 
 
 
Your next stop is the very talented Georgiana.
 
Thanks!!
Tara
