First, I made tons of handmade things to give. And, I didn't take one picture, shame.
Then, I made the handmade cards to mail. I managed to take a few photos...
I thought that I would share with you the Christmas cards I made and mailed this year. I have to tell you that I was WAY behind schedule and by the time I received the first card in the mail, right after Thanksgiving, I realized that I may not get them done.
I did. However, when I was finally ready to write inside them and address the envelopes, I posted to FB that my family and friends may not get their cards in time for Christmas.

They did, or at least most of them did.
I actually drove around my neighborhood with my daughter on Christmas Eve dropping handmade cards in mailboxes.
I was late.

All of my cards measure 5x7, so the "card front" first layer is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and then the subsequent layers are smaller. I can't believe I didn't take a picture of my snowman card! Bummer.
I'll have to check what's left of the stash!
