January 2011 Christmas All Year Long

Last year, I started doing a monthly blog hop for Christmas cards.  I participated through July, and then I just didn't have as much time.  This year, I plan to participate every month.

On the 25th of each month, there is a  Christmas card blog hop for the Magnolia-licious yahoo group.  It's great because I will have plenty of Christmas cards ready for this year!

I used this adorable Angel Tilda.  Isn't she sweet?  I get all of my stamps from Magnolia-licious.

If  you want to start at the beginning of the hop, please click HERE.

The next stop  on the hop is Lindsy's blog.



I used this sketch from Sketch Saturday:

Circle Nestabilities, MS Snowflake punch around the page, Studio G sentiment stamp, Tim Holtz distress inks, stickles,

Really beautiful Lauren. Love the browns and blues, a great non traditional Christmas color combo. The around the page snowflake punch adds a great touch, too.
