From The Heart Blog Hop!

 Can you even believe it is only 21 days until Christmas? What!!!!  Are you ready?  We have some awesome inspiration today if you still need to make your Christmas cards.  It is hop time at From The Heart Stamps, If you came here from Michelle's blog then you are on the right track if not head back to the beginning and start again. 
 When I saw Faith post this image in the store I actually let out a gasp.  Our youngest daughter  who has 2 pet birds will be spending her first Christmas away from home and her favorite thing about Christmas was always having cutout cookies for breakfast,lunch and dinner and she never took just one, she always had to have one in each hand.  So this will make for the perfect card for her.  This image is called For Santa Birdbrain, I colored with copics and the paper is from The Paper Studios.
This is the first card I made for the hop using Skating Birdbrain, this is a sweet image too!  I again colored with copics and the paper is from the Paper Studios.  I actually made another card for the hop but I am going to save it for a rainy day!  Leave some love on all the stops along the way for your chance at a free image, each person will pick one commenter to win.  One lucky person will win a $15 gift voucher to the store so make sure you leave some love on the FTH blog too!  Blog hop will end Monday Dec. 7th and winners will be posted on the FTH blog on Wed. Dec 10th.

Great cards, really cheerful. I am sure your daughter will love hers and I hope you do not miss each other too much. It is always difficult when families are apart for Christmas. Our youngest has missed the last two and will probably miss this year too because of work. Still it is a good excuse to have a second Christmas!
