Six Month till Christmas Blog Hop!!!!!!

Can you believe thats its already SIX MONTHS till Christmas!!!!!
Iam so excited already!!!
For me the best part of Christmas is the build up.
Thats why I love being part of this monthly Blog hop.
The hop was  created so that when the season is upon us we have time to enjoy it.
So If you have arrived from the Talented Sally's Blog then you are in the right place if not you will want to follow the links at the bottom of my page so you can enjoy the hop in order.
We all love to read your  comments they are like early Christmas presents.
This month we were given a photo to inspire us.

My first card  I used Saturated Canary's Snow Blower.
I love all the stamps that Krista has designed they are so much fun.
In this card I tried to incorportae some plaid, and the green that was on top of the cupcake in the photo.
I was thrilled to get a chance to use my new Whimsy Stamp Snowflake Die.
As usual I added some buttons because they are my favourite go to embellishments.

 My second card I used a non Christmas stamp from Some Odd Girl and paper pieced her dress in Christmas plaid. 
I paired her up with my favourite little chubby Snowman from Kraftin Kimmie and paper pieced his scarf with the same papers.

Thanks for stopping by. 
Dont forget to stop by Karen (this months Guest Designer) for some more Christmas fun!!!!

  1. Oh Sandy! Both cards are amazing! Love how you pulled so much from the photo in to your cards! All your images are so darn cute! LOVE both cards! So happy to have you on the team and always look forward to seeing what you create!


    1. Thanks Shari Iam having so much fun with you all !!!

  2. Both cards are just as cute as can be. Love your digi snowblower, and your snowflakes are so pretty. Always love your button embellies too. Your paper piecing on the young lady was very effective, and loved your little snowman next to her with his matching scarf. You really incorporated your inspiration pic in both these cards. TFS

  3. These images are both so fun! Love the plaid on the first card and the landscape scene you created on the second card! The snowflakes and buttons are perfect accents!

  4. OMG, love that adorable little elephant blowing the snow...too cute and what a fantastic scene you created for the second card :)


  5. Great cards. I like your "snowblower" ~ just too cute. Your cupcake inspiration and use for Christmas with the snowman is ingenious. Glad you are in this hop with us.

  6. Wow your cards have so much going on them love all the snowflakes you've added in :) hugs Nikki

  7. Love your cards Sandy, love the way each card has two images......I struggle with one. Great take on the photo. Love that snowflake die....Do I need one?! Lol!!!
