I'm finally getting a break from work and have been getting in the Christmas spirit. I am thankful and excited about all the Christmas cards I have been receiving from all over the world! That's just one of the fun benefits of blogging, I think.
Each year, I send out two groups of Christmas cards. My talented, crafty friends who I know appreciate a handmade card get one of those. My noncrafty (but still wonderful) family and friends receive a photocard. I ordered my photo Christmas cards yesterday, and they should arrive by the end of the week. I also started addressing handmade cards for my crafty friends. And then I realized I didn't have enough!
I had been saving this post from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog about using your stash because I thought it would be a fun thing to do when I got a bit more time. So, I reviewed and started to go through my stash to find some things to make another dozen or so cards. And I had so much fun!
Most of these cards combined a variety of embellishments in my Christmas stash, including patterned paper, stickers, tags, paper piecings, felt fusion, etc. It was totally fun to mix and match things. I hope the recipients like their cards. How are you coming on sending and receiving cards?
