18 Days!

And I still don't have a finished Christmas card to send. Unless you count this one that I made last week for my team's Flying Lessons. We did this as a one sheet wonder and used part of the sheet to make the card and part to make a scrapbook in a box. The stamp sets on this card are Circle Sampler and the Oh Golly set that was only available in November. I wouldn't normally look at circle sampler and think Christmas card, but I was inspired by some cards posted a while ago on Sarah's Studio. This would be another super easy Christmas card for someone like me who has to finish beaucoup cards in the next week. I already received three cards in today's mail from some overachieving friends who completed theirs over Thanksgiving!

Only 22 Days Left!!

And even less mailing days to get Christmas cards out! I had vowed that we wouldn't have "New Year's cards" again this year. But it looks like we may be headed down that track again! I will be putting in some serious stamping time in the next week or so getting the cards and gifts that I have to have done ready. But I work better under pressure.

Here's an oldie but goodie card. This card was inspired by something that I had seen in last year's Paper Crafts magazine. To make it I simply punched a whole bunch of circles from our Merry Wishes paper pack and lay them out in a wreath shape. Add a simple red bow with a glue dot, stamp your sentiment with red ink and you're ready to go. I think that there may be a few of these going out this year!
