Christmas card for next year I guess

Tuesday, January 8, 2008

I made 10 of these cards with the intention of making more and sending these out as my Christmas cards this year. Well it never got done so now I have 10 done as a start on my 2008 cards. Maybe this year I will be able to get some more made and actually send out cards this year. I almost went and bought some cards but then I thought I would rather not send out cards at all than to send out store bought cards (I just couldn't bring myself to do it).
I received a card very similar to this in a swap I participated in a couple of years ago (it may have actually been from the regional SU conference when it was in Memphis.

I used pink passion, basic black and white paper, black gingham and white ribbon, silver brads and Crazy for Christmas stamp set from SU. I then used markers to color in the ornaments.

These cards are so cute, and if you do a little each month, you will be ready for next year. :0)

Ok, loved this card so much that you're one of the blogs I just tagged. To play along post seven things about yourself we may or may not know and then tag seven others.

Great start for next year, I had store bought cards then gave them to my mom to send, she ran out. I had the same thought, if I won't part with the cards I made I won't send any.
