12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! Day 3: Kiwi Lane and Authentique Poinsettia card

Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Day 3. This hop will take place November 24th through December 5th and the new postings each day will be posted by 8am eastern standard time. This hop will be full of wonderful ideas and inspiration to get you well on your way of creating all of those beautiful Christmas project. This is an awesome way to get a lot of your Christmas cards, and scrapbook layouts finished, home decorations completed and maybe even be inspired to create something using a new technique that you have never tried. There will be a new project posted each and every day by all the wonderful amazing ladies in this hop. Also each day we will have a guest designer or two for you to visit.

You should have arrived from Pam's blog if not you can start at Lisa's blog or the entire line up at the bottom of the page.

The As you like it challenge blog's challenge right now is Modern versus Traditionalist style of Christmas card.  I think I blend both.  Just like I blend a lot of styles.  However, I would classify this card as a Traditional.  The colors and theme are pretty traditional.  Of course, who doesn't like traditional, it is tradition right?  LOL.  I will have a Modern take on on a Christmas card coming up in a few days.  So be on the lookout.  It was a stretch for me whereas this card just flowed.
