Christmas Card Swap Blog Hop

     The best way to brighten a person's day is to send them a card, and the holidays give everyone the perfect excuse to do that.  When you add talent to the mix, you have the perfect handmade holiday card to brighten any day.
     That is what this hop is about!  We have gathered some of the most talented card makers around to bring holiday joy to each other while showing off their talents.  Some of the crafters know each other, while others have met for the first time in the Christmas Card Swap group.  Today some of these wonderful ladies will be showing the cards they made.  We hope you will join us to see how talented these crafters are and to get inspiration and ideas for your own holiday cards.
     Please begin your hopping at Lorby's World, for she has a drawing with some special holiday bling and string to give one lucky winner.  All the details on how to get qualified are on her blog.  I'm also giving away some blog candy!  You'll find all the details at the bottom of this post.  Now, on with the cards and holiday cheer!
     Instead of making the same card for everyone in my group, I decided to send each lady a different card.  Last year (2011), my Yahoo scrap group Scrappin' -n- Chattin' had a Christmas in July card challenge.  I went straight to that stash for this hop and sent out these cards:
     Thank you for hopping through today!  Your next stop is Dana, but before you head over to her, you need to check out my blog candy!  I'll be giving away a Christmas stamp set of your choice from The {Stamps} of Life.  I'm a club member over there and absolutely LOVE their stamps!!!  I would love it if you became a new follower, as I'm trying to increase my followers so I can have another giveaway, and you also need to leave a comment below.  That's it!  I'll draw a winner on Monday evening and will post at that time, so please be sure to leave a way to contact you.  Thanks for stopping by, and happy scrapping!

Ashley: How neat to send out different cards to each of the ladies. All of the cards are so nice; I like the Christmas greeting background on the ornament one, the snowmen, the cute gingerbread man and the girl with her cat looking out the window.

All your cards are adorable but I especially like the one I got today in the mail the best. It's so darn cute. Thank you for hopping and swapping with us and I've been a follower for awhile now. Jearise.

Awesome cards Ashley! My favorite is the vintage Santa. I would love to be considered for your blog candy - I do not own any Stamps of Life sets! Already a follower :)

Beautiful cards Ashley. Thanks for the chance to win a set of SOL stamps. I only have a couple of sets but they are awesome.
