Christmas in November

Hi there! Its that time again... for a Blog Hop... can you believe there are only 37 days left until Christmas!!!

**Sorry** didn't mean to Alarm you... lol

Welcome to our Christmas in November Blog Hop where we are showcasing  the exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.

It's hard to believe that it's already November and that Thanksgiving is less than a week away.  And well, that means, it's almost Christmas!   We have created Christmas themed projects for you and hope to inspire you to get started on YOUR Christmas creations.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog - Love 2 Create .  If you came here from "  Darla's" blog, ~ Caution: Stamping is Contagious, then you're in the right place!

So Finally onto my Project:

I have made this Beautiful Christmas card using the Snowflake cuts on Pg 22 of the AP guide and Pg 27. I created a Poinsettia out of snowflakes! I also used the Leaf on Pg 46.

I then used 2nd generation stamping for the background in Olive ink, and then used Holiday Red in the same Stamp and popped it out with some 3D foam tape.

Super Simple and So VERY Pretty!!!

Thanks For Stopping by our Blog hop!
