CAS Christmas Cards






Christmas cards are really not my thing, I had grand ideas of making photo cards this year with the PTI Holiday Photo Finishers set and then I realized the idea of mass producing was stressing me out, so I just ordered photo cards on Shutterfly, click, click, click, done!  But somehow between the post on about the WMS Christmas challenge (November's challenge is CAS cards) and the current Skipping Stones Design sketch, I decided to try my hand at a few cards.  I'm going to mail these to the Cards That Care, because I was lucky enough to win some Lawn Fawn stamps in their recent blog hop.  And ABC Toys and Crafts DT Challenge is all about Christmas cards this month.  

And on a totally different note, since as I said Christmas cards aren't really my thing (that's my polite way of saying I don't love these cards)... here's a precious photo of my little guy eating an ice cream cone.  The photo makes me chuckle... it's exhausting eating ice cream right?


Materials: PTI Holiday Photo Finishers, Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels 4 and Frame It sentiment, Sassafras stitchery stamp, Embroidery floss, Anna Griffin patterned paper, Versafine black ink, Brillance Rocket Red ink

Heehee! Your little guy is so cute! I love the simple design of your cards. They would be perfect for mass production. I'd love to make my own photo cards this year too, but I always wind up ordering them. We can't do it all!

Good thing you recognized when to stop when things stressed you out, I have a difficult time with that. These all are great takes on the sketch. And thanks too, for playing at the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge.

First off, your son is just adorable!!! Love that chocolatey covered face! LOL And, for your cards, I think you did a wonderful job. Sometimes it's so difficult to get in the groove and make something, especially when it's difficult to begin with. I think you tackled this challenge and came up with some beautiful Christmas cards. Thanks for joining us over at SSD this week!
