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 .

  2. 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!

  8. 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!

  9. 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?

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.
