12 Kits of Occasions: November It's Christmas!

Welcome to 12 Kits' November post, coming to you in December! 
November is Tracey McNeeley's month and there was a problem 
with our kits getting to us, but all's well, and the kit was just what was
needed by this grandma with 11 grandchildren. Honestly full of festive
fun and jolly animals and the cutest holiday paper... well, take a look.

Leading off with a closeup of my first card. Wanted you to see fussy cuts from designer paper  
Tracey sent that helped create my 'Happy Pawlidays' card for Shepherd, 7 years old.

Each card that follows was made for the youngest ones in my family, ages 4 - 15.
Hopefully, you're in the mood for some Christmas critters, and even a Santa too.
Cutting into some of the images on the designer paper was a theme I used on almost
every card!

Joy Snowglobe goes to Ana. She's 14, and we share a love for collecting all things Christmas.

This guy is for Nate, 13. I love that Tracey included so many masculine papers, like this
green plaid.

Eli is 4. He'll love the play on words, 'Santa Paws'!

A tangled puppy goes to Noelle, 8. She has a dog that looks just like this cutie.

Garrett is 15, and a total animal lover. I think he'll love this duo.

This MFT Santa and his pup goes to Reagan, 13. She'll love his jolly ol' self!

And one more tag, cuz you can never have too tags at Christmas time,

I used every adorable critter Tracey sent, most all the festive papers, and twine and
bling. This was kit I loved, every single bit! Thank you Tracey. You made this
grandma's Christmas cards easy doings!

All items sent out with November's kit is available on the 12 Kits' blog.
Have to mention a special guest with us this month, an
ex member of our group, Joyce Mehrberg.
Be sure to drop by her blog and give her some love.
