Eight Months till Christmas Blog Hop!!!

Welcome can you believe thats its only eight months till Christmas.
I was sitting in my living room this afternoon and was picturing where I could put up a second Christmas tree this year.
Since I still have to get through flip flop season before my husband even wants to discuss a second Christmas tree , I will make Christmas cards to get my fix.
This months Christmas Blog Hop Theme is animals.
This was a lot of fun for me since I primarily use people images.
Again thanks to the ladies of the Christmas Blog for inviting me to join in on the fun!!

If you have arrived here from the talented Sallys blog then you are in the right place. If you happened to stop by for a visit, great! I am so glad you are here...but please start at creative Shari'sblog so you can enjoy all the beautiful cards/projects everyone has made. At the bottom of this post I will put the entire blog hop order for you to follow.

Wee stamps Christmas Bunny

I just love the Wee Stamps Christmas Bunny. He looks so happy up there on top of all those Christmas Presents. 
I coloured him up with copics and used some cute little sticky buttons that I found at our local dollar store.
Punched out some snowflakes and glittered the tips up with my spica glitter pen and added a rinestone in the centre for extra sparkle. 
The papers are from my Recollections Blue Christmas 6x6 pack.
I love the blue/pink colour combo when I make cards that have snow.

I just fell in love with this little guy because this is what my husband looks like every year putting up our lights.
Again I coloured him up with copics and chalked the edges in red. Used a sentiment from my Kraftin Kimmie Christmas sentiment pack.
The papers are from Bo Bunnys Mistletoe collection and the rhinestones I used where actually in my stocking this year from Santa.
Again Thanks for stopping by and helping us count down to Christmas.
Hugs and Merry Early Christmas
