Christmas is Only How Many Days Away?!!!!

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not one of those that jumps directly into Christmas mode and forgets about Thanksgiving. My house is Fall decorated right now. I am very thankful for my family and friends. We will get together and eat way too much in 3 weeks.
But, you do have to admit, it is very hard to ignore the calender! Have you done any Holiday shopping? I have my dear hubby 2 things. He's great at dropping hints and when I run across those things, I grab 'em! :)
Another reason I tend to gravitate toward Christmas sooner is that I don't send that many Fall cards, unless they're Fall Birthdays. Christmas is my biggest card giving holiday as I know it probably is yours. So, I'm sharing the cards I've been making these past few weeks. I like making all different designed cards to send. I know some of my friends like to make 1 card and mass produce for their card each year. What do you prefer?


This is a card I made for a CAS sketch last week over on SCS. The 3 pieces in the background are made with some scrap dsp and real red card stock. I ran the scallop border punch over the rr.
I love, love the Tree Trimming set from SU! I put a little pearl at the top of the ornament image. Mostly b/c there was too much space between the ornament and the stamp string! LOL :)

Thanks so much for visiting me today.
Until next time...
Blessings...

Very pretty card Melina. I like to make all different cards. Sometimes if it is very close to Christmas and I behind I do a couple of repetitions, but not many. I think this year with so many challenges that I am doing I'll be fine :).

Great Christmas card! I've been making lots of Christmas cards these past few weeks. This year I decided not to make them all at the last minute.
