Christmas Card Catch Up!

Is it just me or is Christmas coming at us faster every year?  Seems like I was in the stores in August wondering why there were so many Christmas things and I turned around and there are only a few days left! 

I have a bit over half of my presents purchased.  I just got my tree up last week (had to do that before Bunco night or people would worry about me - lol).  I am running super far behind!

Sadly, I haven't sent out cards and haven't made very many either. Needless to say, I am trying to catch up on some Christmas cards fast!

Here are a douple.  The first one is for the DRS Designs Gold and Silver challenge this week - still runs until Wednesday if you want to play too.  I used the DRS Designs Christmas Especially to you greeting. My die cuts are from SU!  I did the sentiment in silver embossing powder and added silver glitter for my snow effect.

The current Paper A La Mode challenge is Christmas and the sponsor is My Besties.  I used this darling Lil Angel Wings image.  I have never used a My Besties image and I loved it - you just get lost in her giant eyes. I colored her with colored pencils but next time I am using alcohol markers so I can do a better job on her hair!

Lastly, I made a tag to match the above DRS card - I made it with scraps from the card.  I cut the die cut up so I got a horse and a sleigh to use on the tag.  The image is a custom image you can order from DRS Designs called Custom Christmas Village Custom Name Sign.  They will put anything you can fit on it.  I had then put Mortar Creek Farms because that is what we call our little property and my parent's property together.  Fun! 

Hope you are doing better than me on the Christmas preparations! 
Many hugz!!!!


  1. Wow your creative juices come to life when you are under the gun. Maybe you should wait until last minute every year. LOL I am so far behind that I ended up purchasing some cards and gift card holders. I'll remember to slap my own hand, bag girl!!! Enjoy your day and those babies.
