Happy Seven Months to Christmas!!!!!

Welcome to our Countdown to Christmas Blog Hop!!!!
If you have come from the talented Saras blog welcome !!
If you have just come by for a visit and would like to check out the blog in order I have posted the hop order with links at the end of my post.

I have been having so much fun making Christmas cards every month!  I am well on my way to filling my table at this years Christmas Craft Fair. Being part of this Christmas Blog hop is seriuosly fun and helpful.

This months theme is Festive flowers.
When you make cards according to a theme you realize what supplies you are lacking in your craft room.
For me it was Christmas flowers.
Happily  I was able to come up with some. 
Then my Darling Bald Man bought me a Big Shot with some fabulous Dies that I am looking forward to sharing with you all in the coming months projects.

My first card that I made I used a Holly Hobby Christmas stamp that my husband bought me this past Christmas season that I hadn't had a chance to use yet.
Iam please how it turned out. I also realized that I may need stronger glasses for the finer detailed stamps. 

For my second project I found an old brochure frame and thought it might be fun to try and make it into a 3D type card.
Not totally sure if I am in love with it but it made for a fun afternoon and has given me some new ideas.

I got to use one of my favorite Christmas Tilda stamps from Magnolia and I paired her up with    a fun Kraftin Kimmie Snowman.  
I hope you enjoyed your visit to my Blog and hope you had a chance to visit the blogs of all the other lovely christmas Hop. If you missed one or came across my blog by chance here is the blog hop order with links.
Merry Early Christmas!!!!

Poor Sick Kid

Iam sitting on the couch next to my poor sick 14 year old boy watching the Big Bang Theory.
One minute he is shivering under the blanket the next minute he is over heated kicking the blanket to the floor.
He cracked me up when he announced he has Monopause.
Seriously it was really funny.
Taking care of him kept me busy today so not a lot of time for crafting but I noticed I have several cards I haven't posted yet.
