Ding Dong My Cards Are Done!

Not that my cards are wicked. For all my pretend grumbling, I can't imagine Christmas without making cards. I'm usually done earlier but something's been distracting me this year....hmmmm....maybe blogging :) ? But they're all (57) addressed, stamped (including extra postage for heavier ones Post Office people!) and on their way. Here are a few I remembered to take pics of before sending:

Forgot to change my camera setting for detail ... Me&My Big Ideas glittered polka dot paper, glittered winter scene rub-o, K&Co glittery self adhesive scrapbook borders
Me&My Big Ideas music paper, K&CO glittery scrapbook border scrap, misc snowflake and postage rub-ons, focal sticker from Michael's $1 section Christmas collection
Studio G Rhinestone strip, another diecut sticker from Michael's $1 pack, Me&My Big Ideas paper
In years past I was obsessive about every card being exactly the same. Then a few years ago I couldn't find enough of something , got over it and made different cards, and since then have made more and more variety .

I managed to make a grand total of four christmas cards in time to be sent out. I don't know how you do it. And to make them look so wonderful!

Merry Christmas!

Jocelyn said...

Congrats on finishing yours up! I am still trying to finish...I just changed my design up. LOL! They might make it out before new years:-)

Michelle L. said...

Oh, man, how could you not take pics of them? Because they are tiny works of art. Next year, you better!

Netty said...

They are just beautiful!

Sarah the Writer said...

Wow, no wonder you were grumbling. I guess I thought you had ordered printed ones from Costco or Hallmark or wherever, like we do every year. Those are beautiful! You're a lot more creative and crafty than I am!

They look fabulous!

They're gorgeous ~ I'd frame mine! It was enough work for me to create a digital card on Shutterfly! They're such a nice way to say Merry Christmas, no?

Christine said...

Great job lady! They are awesome! I'll email you my address...LOL!

Michele Pacey said...

Such pretty cards! I can imagine the time it took you to make 57 (!!!) different cards. Wow! My hero! I'm a huge fan of unique!

Lori said...

ooo, these are beautiful! You have such a great eye for design. I mean, you used a whole bunch of different stuff together and it looks so cool and cohesive. I swear, you could put a turd on a card and make it look beautiful. Yes, you're THAT good.

Jacqueline said...

Wow, that is a labor of love! I don't know if I could do that, but I bet it is hard to stop once you get started. I remember my mother hand painting cards one year, wish I had those!

So glad you made the toffee. I wanted to make a batch again today to be sure I could do it by myself. It seemed sooo easy yesterday. I was too busy hosting a party at my house, but tomorrow, for sure! Don't eat it all in one sitting.

Way cute! I make about 50 too. But they are all the same design.

Vicki said...

These are absolutely beautiful. You amaze me!

Allison said...

Thanks for linking up your fantastic cards!
