Christmas Count.

I said a while back that I was dedicating 2 weeks strictly for making Christmas cards. I think I did OK, I didn't add them up but it looks like I made a dozen or so. As I was off-the-hook busy with family stuff I didn't take pics of most of them but I can show you these.

I made 5 of them to (hopefully) sell at the craft show. The silhouette image is from a CD of mine. The HO HO HO stamp is from the $1 bin at Michael's, then some stitching and felt, 2 of my favourite things.

I hope all of you with kids that started school today enjoyed yourselves. My daughter had her first day of Grade 2 and it went well. She was placed in a Grade 2/3 split class. I have no experience with this, I wonder how the teachers/principal decide which students to put in these types of classes. She thinks it's exciting and was exhausted by the end of the night, I can hear her snoring in her room right now!

Anyway, my cards are for these challenges -
Winter Wonderland. FOR A SPECIAL PERSON.
Card Cupids. STITCHING.
Crafty Ribbon. FESTIVE CHEER.

Also, just now, before hitting publish I ran a spell check and had NO words spelled incorrectly!!! That is a first!

Thanks for stopping by,

I love this; I have a place in my heart for silhouettes. Paired up with that gorgeous argyle-patterned paper makes this card a handmade gem; wow!
