Cross-Canada Blog Hop - Jeepers Creepers (Halloween or Not?)

Welcome to our October Blog Hop featuring Jeepers Creepers creations. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop contact your local consultant to place an order. 

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts as we love to get feedback from our visitors. Whether it was something you liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do... by leaving a comment, we get to hear what you like and what you want to see. Now on to our hop! 

If you just hopped on to my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop. If you want to follow us from East to West across Canada, start at Michelle's blog. If you are traveling in a circle, you should have arrived from Nicky's blog

I chose to create two cards for this blog hop. The first is a standard Halloween card since Jeepers Creepers IS a Halloween paper pack. I love the little creatures in the stamp set called Monstrous Halloween and they can be used for so many different occasions! 

The second card I created is one that uses the Jeepers Creepers paper but for a Christmas themed card. I love non-traditional colours for Christmas and focused on the Lagoon and Pansy coloured papers and used some Silver Glitter paper to cut the snowflake die cuts. I like the simplicity of this card. 

Your next blog on the Cross Canada hop is Donna's blog and I am sure she has something wonderful to share with you. If you get lost along the way, Michelle has a list of all the bloggers on the hop along with their links.
