Christmas Card Hop - Creations With Becka

I am so excited today because I am a part of the Christmas Cards Blog Hop over at Creations With Becka (link) . We have an exciting line up of ladies who have all created Christmas cards to give you ideas of homemade cards you can all make to send to your friends and family this holiday season. So to start off, if you came from Melissa's blog, than you are in the right place. If you just stopped by to say Hi, please start from the beginning of the hop over at Creations With Becka. Make sure you go through the whole hop and comment on each blog so you are eligible for the grand prize blog candy Becka is giving away.
Here is the card set that I made:

I made these cards using cream colored cardstock.. the patterned papers are all from the holiday collection by DCWV.. I used some clare stamps for the sentiments. I added some gold ribbon to 2 of the cards and some red bakers twine on one of the cards. For the window card I cut the center our leaving 1 inch around all edges.
I tried to keep all of my cards fairly simple.. the most complicated is probably the one with the candy cane and I just free hand cut a candy cane out of the stripped paper and then used pop dots to put the candy cane back into place.
Your next stop is Lisa Grave.
I have a little surprise candy for someone to win.. all you have to do is leave a comment (with a way to get ahold of you if you win) by Sunday Dec 4 2011 @ 11:59pm PST and I'll draw a winner using and post them here on Monday. You do not have to be a follower to win.. But I'm getting close to 300 followers and will be doing a giveaway for that soon.
