November Release and Blog Hop at Our Daily Bread Designs

Good morning and welcome to the November Release and Blog Hop at Our Daily Bread Designs!  I can't believe it is already November!  I really, really, REALLY do not know where the year went!  I must admit it is fun to start making holiday cards.  However, it is terrifying when I think of how many weekends I have to prepare for Thanksgiving and then Christmas!  Does anyone else feel my pain?  **gnashing of teeth**  I have found the best therapy is to just give in and let go!  So I did just that when working on this month's cards.  Here is my first project using the new Winter Chickadee stamp set and the new Christmas Paper Collection 2017.

Beautiful cards. I love that the deer and trees are a set of dies. Makes it very convenient to get the right size of images to make the scene. That snow globe card is so awesome. Thanks for the inspiration.
I really like your choice of background paper. I tend to go more solid so I like the pop you get with the paper.
