Cross Canada Blog Hop: Christmas Cards.

Welcome to our first of 2 Blog Hops happening this month. In this Hop you will find that each consultant has created 3 Christmas Cards using non-Christmas paper! They were given the challenge to create these 3 cards using either cardstock or another paper packet of their choice.

  1. Great job with the cards, they look great. :)

  2. I love the simplicity of the last card! Beautiful job!

  3. Great cards Carrie. Each of them had something special: the "medallions" on the first card, super-cuteness and simplicity of the second, and the clean and stunning look of the third. Love them all.
