Christmas Greetings Blog Hop, Day #1


Welcome to the Christmas Greetings Blog Hop (12/2-12/4), featuring Christmas cards made by some very talented ladies. Stop back to each of the HopStops daily this weekend to see a new card on each day. We'll each have a Christmas gift to brighten the day of a winner chosen at random from those who leave comments and follow.

Here is my card for Day #1, Friday December 2:


You may recognize this card if you're a subscriber to Cricut Magazine ... I got the idea from their pages.  

I didn't have candy cane striped paper, so I made my own on my computer/printer. (Cute!!!)  I typeset the sentiment too. For the reindeer, I used the Doodlecharm Cricut cartridge, and embossed the face with an argyle pattern, just because....

For my blog candy, I have a super sweet pair of Stainless Steel soft-handled scissors by Recollections. These have adorable pink/white padded finger holes and terrific tiny-points for intricate fussy cutting. 

To win, simply leave a comment on this post and be a CardMonkey follower.  In your comment, please leave a way for me to contact you, when you win.  Winner will be chosen at random on Sunday, 12/4 and posted on Monday, 12/5.  Come back on days #2 and #3 and post comments then too, for additional chances to win!!  Thank you and good luck!
