Welcome to the first of 2 CTMH Cross Canada Blog Hops happening this month.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Deanne in NewFoundland . If you came from the crafty Carrie's blog  of "Scrappin' with Carrie" then you are in the right place!

November 5th Blog Hop: Christmas Cards with Non-Holiday paper
This time, you will find that each CTMH consultant in our group has created 3 Christmas Cards using non-Christmas paper! We were each given the challenge to create these 3 cards using either cardstock or another paper packet of their choice.  I was having so much fun, I created 4 cards!  Look and see.

I chose Dakota, in honour of my trip to the Calgary Stampede this summer.  And, it's one of my favourite paper packs!
