My first card for a challenge:)

So I try to go to my local scrapbook store once a week to do their make and take for $5.oo and before I went on holidays they were talking about having a monthly I'm trying it:) The store gives you an image this time the blue scallop with the sentiment and you make what ever card you can with your own needs to be passed in by the 15th of the month and then customers will vote on the entries the rest of the month and the winner will get the stamp:) so I'm crossing my What do you think of my card??? Drop me a line and let me know:)

Another post for me:)

Well these are the cards that I started with this season. I think the term is that I CASED this idea from Anita over at The Hovey Hut. She had been talking about a small stamp set that she really liked but couldn't think of how to use it and I was in the same situation:)

I can see the end in sight:)

Wow! I can't believe I did it:) Well yes I can..LOL. I've got all of my mailing Christmas cards done and in the envelopes and stamped just need the pictures that I forgot to print to put in most of them:) So I'm doing that tomorrow when I go into work for a couple of hours and then when I get home in the envies they go! Presto chango in the mail Thursday! Not to far behind schedule:) YEAH!! Don't get me wrong I still have about 35 to make for my locals but now that the MOJO is flowing it shouldn't be a problem.

This year I did quite a few workshop type cards, you know the kind that you use 3 sheets of paper and get 16 cards (I may have done that one twice, but in different colours or course:) And then there was the one that you used 6 sheets of 12x12 five different ones and you got 20 cards. Anywho enough talking more showing:)

A modest start

Ok, ok, I'm no where near done my Christmas cards yet but I do have about 30-40 done:) One group I did, I cased from Anita over at The Hovey Hut from about a month ago. The latest set is a card workshop from my new "Wishes" book from CTMH. I'm still not quite done with them so I'll be posting them in a day or so. I'm hoping to have a card making day tomorrow, actually I'm not planning on doing anything else tomorrow except that;) Wish me luck!

sorry I haven't figured out how to link you to Anita's site:(

Christmas is coming!!!

So I don't have any pictures to post yet but I will. I have hand made all of my Christmas cards for at least the past 5 years. The first year I was local and the last 4 years I've lived across the country....this will be year 6 for me:) I make around 120 cards every year....and I usually start at the beginning of November so as of today I'm running behind schedule:) LOL! So keep your fingers crossed for me because I need at least 60 - 70 by the first of December so I can mail them:) I can already feel the rush coming...... I'm sooo not going to be able to sleep tonight:)
