Merry Christmas

I've been missing in the blog world, but I've been crafting.  And it was December, which I was 100% devoted to my family.  Sorry blog followers. 

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!

Happy Stamping,
