It's a Blog Hop!!!



Good morning my bloggy friends!   I am so excited today because I am a part of the Christmas Cards Blog Hop over at Creations with Becka . We have an exciting line up of ladies who have all created Christmas cards to give you ideas of homemade cards you can all make to send to your friends and family this holiday season. So to start off, if you came from Gloria, than you are in the right place. If you just stopped by to say Hi, please start from the beginning of the hop over at Creations with Becka. Make sure you go through the whole hop and comment on each blog so you are eligible for the grand prize blog candy Becka is giving away.


WOW, can you believe it is December already? This year seems to have flown by. Christmas will be here in 4 weeks, crazy right! I still have so much to do, buy gifts, decorate the house, hang lights and then the baking. But at least I am ahead on one thing, Christmas Cards…and hopefully after finishing the blog hop we have inspired you and have given you ideas on your Christmas cards you want to make for you family and friends this year.

I always get Christmas cards in the mail up until Christmas and even some after Christmas from the late senders, but most of the cards I receive are store bought, none of them have the special feeling when you open them like “WOW someone really put a lot of time and effort into this” and that is why I like to make my own cards. I think it just adds that WOW factor and gives the person you are sending it to the feeling of you really care and you took the time to make the cards.

Without further ado, here is my card for the hop:



 Now for the details...

The card is 5.25" square

That super cute penguin and his igloo are from Create a Critter cricut cartridge.  The penquin was cut at 3" and the igloo was 2.5".

The background paper of trees is from Bella Blvd

The green hill was just a free had cut to make the igloo standout a bit better. 

Sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly and the set is Handwritten.

Last but certainly not least the light string is from TPC Studios.  I wish I could tell you for sure where I got it but I would bet money it was Michael's or JoAnn's.

I do have blog candy.  I do not have a picture of it yet but I can tell you that it is a fabulous grouping of butterfly embellishments including bling and charms.  I'm sure you'll love it!  They are some of my favorite things. To be eligible just leave a comment on this post.  I'd also love to have you as a follower but it is not required to win the candy!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, your next stop is Julie K. Talk about blog candy- and how to win it. Don’t forget to leave a comment on every post to be eligible for the grand prize blog candy.
