A Few New Christmas Cards!

I actually got some more cards made yesterday - wooo hooo! I have so many more to make, and I'm terribly behind, but that happens every year, LOL! Regardless of the amount of sleep I get, or how long our school day may last, I'm committed to getting them all done this year, and using all my newest things. Don't want to wind up on the Naughty List, right?

These three cards were made using two new sets from Clearly Besotted Stamps, Ornamental Style and Hanging Around. I dug out my older Christmas paper packs and pulled out the designs that "spoke" to me, and then got to work.
I despise making duplicate cards, but I took the same layout and just switched up the colors for these two. That's OK for me, as they aren't identical. Still, I can't make more than two of the "same" card or I get very bored and irritated!!!

I only made one card, so far, with this stamp set. It took me a long time to figure out how this card was going to go, and by the time I figured it out I was ready for something different. This is why I never get tired of stamping...there's always something new to play with or try! I did start a 4th card, but didn't get very far before having to call it a day. Something to save for tomorrow's post, I guess! Be back soon...

Lookin' good. Unfortunatley, for the most part, mine are going to have to be mass produced this year. I'm sure I will be throwing in the odd creative idea occasionally to drive away the boredom of mass production.

I'm so used to mass production--LOL! But yours are much prettier. This year we are going ultra, ultra plain with the new baby and all. Have a really good week and sleep well!! :)
