Festive Blog Hop #8

We are growing again!!! Yeah more blogs for the hop...

We would like for you to join us two Fridays a month to make your Christmas Cards... I have a challenge posted on facebook for the gals (and guys) who would like to show us your cards (Christmas Cards Challenge (Festive Blog Hop)) Come on gals lets get these cards done!!!!!

If you came here from Cheryl's blog you are in the right place. If you happened upon my blog and would like to start at the beginning at Terri's blog then here is where you go.

I made a card again from the Christmas Card Cricut Cartridge (can you say that fast five times!)

Sorry couldn't resist!( I am still doing easy cards as my right hand is still not very usable. I likely have nerve damage and it swells so much when I use it even a bit)

The Christmas tree card is the one I did.. It is very cute... but I have to say I had trouble with the sentiment so I just used a SU stamp.. I cut the card at 5.5 and the first layer at 5.25 so the layer would show.. I cut all other layers at 5 so the layers would show again.. it worked really well. I used all paper that was in my scrapbox (file folder), so I dont know exactly where it came from but I love the colours and the musical notes paper.. It is actually a wine colour so I hope it shows up like that in the picture.

From here you go to Who Are You Calling Crafty and visit the talented Amanda!

Don't forget if you make some Christmas cards with us visit us at the Christmas Card challenge facebook page.... and show us your cards!
