I counted and I'm behind!

Happy Monday you guys!

Feeling a little holiday 'round here today! Back to some "Me" challenge time. Ya'll know how I love me some challenges!! I counted my holiday cards the other day and I am low! The most we've ever mailed was 65, the least was 42. I have only 27. Doing the math and I know I need a few more. =)

I was only able to finish 2 cards today though. =( Maybe tomorrow I can complete a few more. I hope. I found some more great Christmas card challenges like ABC Christmas Challenges. They wanted us to use a Christmas song as our inspiration. So, I thought I'd use We Wish You  A Merry Christmas as it matched the retired SU sentiment stamp. The papers are from a bunch of different companies. The charm is a pewter charm from my jewelry making stuff.

My 2nd card is for Muse ChristmasVisions - a picture was giving as inspiration. The picture was a beautiful card with blues and whites. So I decided to use more of my favs: Lawn Fawn stamps to create this card. The pattern paper is retired SU. I used LF Party Animal set for the deer, the Santa hat is from an old SU set and the sentiment is from another LF set Joy to the Woods. I soooo love Lawn Fawn!
So, come by tomorrow night and I will post a few more Christmas cards. =)
Smiles & Hugs!

    1. The camera didn't pick up the colors. They are your standard, but softer greens, reds and like a sky blue. It looks way better in person.

  5. Wow, adorable! Do you make only one of each so everyone gets a unique card? That's a lot of work. I often make some multiples.

    Love 'em!

    1. I use to make all the same - but this year I thought I'd mix it all up and since I'm part of this 40 weeks of Christmas card class thing, it seemed like the perfect time to try different stuff and send out a mix of cards. Also was less boring or me! =)

  6. Oooh, that bunny is a little too adorable! I love that card; great colors and patterns! That deer is pretty cute, too! I can't believe you have that many Christmas cards done….I haven't even started in that direction!


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a little lovin' ~ I really appreciate you.
