Yes, I am starting Christmas cards all ready! This year I was sending them out (ok, I was making them) the week of Christmas and I vowed I would start making cards in January and continue throughout the year so that wouldn't happen again. So, the challenges from Verve (the sketch for Viva La Verve), Our Daily Bread Designs (used something old and something new), JUGS (Envy of Envies--decorate & line the envelope), and Off The Wall Craftiness (color challenge, see the last picture in this post) were the perfect chance to start. For my something new: last week I just received the "Richly Blessed" set from Verve and I used the "Jesus" and "the true gift of Christmas" sentiments. Old things are the snowflake stamps (inkadinkadoo, I think) and all the cardstock.
