December 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

Hello all my crafty friends!
Can you believe it is December already??
Christmas is just 24 days away, do you have
your shopping and crafting done yet??
I still have some shopping to do, but since I have
been making & posting christmas cards since October,
I have a slew of cards done!!

Well enough rambling, today is the day
for the 100 Cartridge Blog Hop with
You have have arrived from my dear
friend Shelley, if not please start at the
beginning so you don't miss anything!!
Due to some unfortunate circumstances
our team has shrunk in half within
the last month!!  So this time
our hop will only be one day.
Grab a snack and a beverage of choice
and join us for some great Cricut inspiration!!

This month I made 3 projects using
4 cartridges.  I used
Christmas Solutions, Simply Charmed,
Gypsy Wanderings and Teddy Bears on Parade.

Here is my first project using
Simply Charmed and Gypsy Wanderings.

The striped frame was cut at 5.25" H from
Gypsy Wanderings.  The candy was cut at 3"
from Simply Charmed.
I used Coordinations Cardstock and
the striped paper is DCWV.
I embossed the white cardstock
with a folder called
Peppermint Twists from Sizzix.
I also spritzed it with some glimmer mist.

This cute little tag is from My Craft Spot's
"Tiny Tags" dies and the sentiment
is from her "Mistletoe" stamp set.
I stamped it with Versamark and
embossed with Zing Embossing Powder.
 I am entering this card in the following challenges:

This next card was made using Teddy Bears on Parade.
My inspiration for this card was
from a card that GiGi
made for the November Release
for My Craft Spot.

All paper was from the Echo Park
Very Merry Christmas Pack.
Teddy and all his layers were cut at 4"
I stamped his face with
Peachy Keens "Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed"
stamp set.  I added some white with my gelly roll pen
and added some glossy accents.
The label he is mounted on was
cut from Gypsy Wanderings at 4.75"
He is also mounted on an Action Wobble!!

I stamped his face with
Peachy Keens "Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed"
stamp set.  I added some white with my gelly roll pen
and added some glossy accents.
I added a cute little pom pom made from twine
to the top of his hat.
I am entering this card
in the following challenges:
Made Especially for You
Go Fish
Paper Playtime

My last project is a tag I made
using Christmas Solutions.
I had just won this great stamp
set "mistletoe" from My Craft Spot
November Release and knew I
wanted to make a tag with some Mistletoe!!

I cut the tag from kraft cardstock using
My Creative Time's Tag Dies.
I embossed the tag using a Mistletoe
Cuttlebug folder.  I then added
some pattern paper and decorative
trim from Webster's Pages.

The Mistletoe was cut from
Christmas Solutions at 2.07" H.
I added some pearls as the berries.

I hand cut the tag with the
sentiment on it and
added some crinkle ribbon and lace.
I am entering this project
in the "To Die For"
challenge over at CardzTV

Thanks for stopping by today,
your next stop is the very talented

Here is the entire lineup
in case you get lost along the way :)
