So tell me, have you started your Christmas Shopping yet?  If so are your present wrapped? Have you started to decorate your house?   Well I have about 70% of my shopping done and my house is under way in looking all festive!! Soooooo Happy!  If you area regular to our monthly hop you know that I am a little crazy about Christmas, hence why I started this fun hop for each month of the year LOL!

Well today I have two more Christmas cards to show to you, I now have 29 Christmas cards completed to hand out this wonderful season, Whoot Whoot!!  This month I did something a little different, I took two images and made the cards using the same design but in different colours - let me know what you think!
