Christmas Cards

The first 2 Christmas cards of the season arrived at our house yesterday. I love getting Christmas cards in the mail.... stamped or not. But, it sure makes me smile to receive someone else's labor of love! I was working on my own cards when the mail arrived. I need to get a move on it though. I only have 22 cards finished.
I debated on whether to post my own cards. I finally decided to show you this one. I incorporated my favorite color (of the moment) into this card.... Soft Sky! Hubby said it shocked him a bit to see the non-traditional colors, so at first he was a bit skeptical. I think I can win him over.
Card Recipe~
Stamps: Seasons Greeting Stamp Strip (Danielle Johnson) @ Mike's
Ink: Ruby Red
Paper: Soft Sky, Ruby Red, Pumpkin, Pixie Pink, Green is American Crafts "Play", DP is The Paper Studio "Retro Ornaments"
Accessories: Square and Circle punches, Gemstones (the Paper Studio), Pop Dots, Stampamajig
I like to keep my Christmas cards simple, mainly because I wait so long to make them and have to!
I am feeling much better. Thank you so much for your well wishes. I hope to get at least a dozen more Christmas cards made today and then finish them over the weekend. Thankfully I have my assistant, Katie. She's an amazing help and has helped me more than you can imagine over the years. What a doll!
Have a great day, friends!

P.S. I haven't forgotten my sketch. I hope you haven't either. I'll be back later today with a pic of the prize.
