Silver Pines

Are you ready for a Christmas card blitz? I'm just making my cards now (wish me luck with that, lol!) so I'll have plenty to share over the next couple of weeks. I don't like to make 60 cards of the same design, but no way will I have time to make them all different. The strategy I'm using so far is to make a card, and if I like it, make a few more while the supplies are still out on my table. So far, it's working out pretty well.
Here's a card I made over the weekend. The glimmer on the blue panel is just unbelievable in real life, and the card went together really quickly so this was definitely one of those "make a few more" cards.  So how about you?  What's  your Christmas card situation?

  1. I do love this card. Those trees are perfect for quick and easy Christmas cards!! I am just like you, I hate to create a bunch of the same card. I just make one or two but this year, I tried to make 5 or 6 of the ones I really liked. I have had all of my Christmas cards done by Dec. 1st (I started back in September this year). They are all mailed out and now I am sitting back and enjoying my family for the holidays!!


It's so nice to hear from you...thanks for taking the time to comment!
