5 Months to Christmas Blog Hop for Fun!

Can you believe the title only 5 months to Christmas!
So I am here this morning to share a couple of cards for the Christmas blog hop that I play along with each month.  

I must say that I think these are the quickest two cards that I have ever made.......   The thing is that I got confused with which month we were on and actually made these for last months challenge so for once this post has been ready and waiting to go live for a month!

So the theme this month was non traditional Christmas colours.

I have chosen Black and White which for me isn't a combination that I would usually go for but I quite like the way that the cards turned out :)

The first one is using an image from Penny Black called Snow Joy that I got from The Glitter Pot recently in the Sale :)  Coloured with Promarkers and Polychromo pencils

Paper from stash
Snowflakes Dies - Lil Inker 
Embossing Folder - Sizzix
Liquid Pearls and Stickles
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
Twine - American Crafts

The second card is a super duper speedy card......I must try harder next month girls.

The bauble is cut with Nestabilities
Spruce branch - Doohickey Die
Paper from stash
Card Blank - Craftwork cards
Twine - American Crafts
Stickles - Glitter Dust

Here they are together....  
So you now need to pop over to the lovely Sandy
