8 Months til Christmas Blog Hop 2013

Well it is 8 months until Christmas and I really thought that we would have some warmer weather by now.  Every time we get snow my husband says "this will be the last of it" and the next week it is snowing again.  I have had enough of it.
On with the blog hop, if you came from Sara's blog then you are in the right place.  If you just happened to stop by my blog and would like to hop with us you can start at Shari's blog.
Our theme for this month is Animals.  I used a reindeer as the animal on both of my projects.  My first project is a card using Copic markers and a stamp by Recollections.
E00, E33, E35, E37
B00, B02
R22, R24, R29

For my second project I used vinyl in a picture frame.  The frame is 7.5" x 15" which is wider than most cardstock so I used wrapping paper for the background.  I flipped my designs so that I could stick them to the back of the glass.
A couple of weeks ago we had Scrapfest in Kitchener and my daughter and I went and did some shopping.  I was also lucky enough to finally be able to meet up with one of my fellow blog hop friends, Heather.  We have been talking for a couple of years now and have been wanting to meet up.  She is just as adorable in person and I really enjoyed meeting her and her lovely parents.  We will now have to plan to get together with more of our local blog hop friends.

The next stop on the blog hop is Tara's blog

Baby Shower Banner and Gift

We had a baby shower at work for a couple of girls, one who had a baby boy and another who is due next month and doesn't know what she is having.  I made this gender neutral banner for the shower.  I used my Cricut E2 and the Pretty Pennants cartridge and the pre-loaded Alphabet cartridge for the font.  I also used the Stitched XL Label Die by My Creative Time and the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder.

As a gift I made this print and cut subway art from the Silhouette online store.  I just did the print feature on it though.
