11 Months 'till Christmas Blog Hop

I was lucky to have been invited to join in this month's Christmas Blog Hop. I have to agree it's never to early to get starting on those Christmas Cards I make anywhere from 70-80 a Year and mail out alot to my friends so it's really nice to have a quick stash available when needed to make it a stress free holiday. Can you imagine trying to make 80 cards in Dec OMG you'd pull your hair out lol or would they all be a sticker slapped in the middle of folded paper.  Humm that sounds like the 1st year I made Xmas Cards. I've made some progress since then.  
This month the theme is snowbound lots of things to do with snow
So my first card is using Limited Runs Chubby Snowman with lots of snowflake papers and add on's
Inside
Now for My Second Card is "Henry Dressed as Santa Claus" WOJ Digi
With tons of Snowflakes and even some snow too
The inside of this card is decorated too but
I just wanted to show the close up of Henry instead

Papers - Recollections, Brad Recollections and Heat embossed with Stampendous.

  22. I love your cards. My favorite is the chubby snowman card. I have been wanting him. He is so jolly looking. I love the color scheme you chose to use. Mostly snowmen are done with blue colors. Very cute Santa mouse. I love the ribbon you used. It looks vintage. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown edwinabrown@comcast.net
