We have had our first official snow, lasted only the afternoon, but now I can work on my Christmas cards for my family and friends and this Christmas Card Blog Hop for all of you! I have been so excited to make my cards this year since I have been doing so much more stamping and have a plethora of card-making ideas to share!

For the Christmas Card Blog Hop, I will be using the Winter Woods stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and also using some dies and designer series paper in the card designs.

I am Traci Raether, Creative Coach, and Founder of Plum Crazy Stamping, where we make stamping easy! I hope you enjoy the card examples that I have created for you.
