“Say it ain’t so”!?

That’s what my husband said today when I told him what I am going to do. I told him from NOW until December, I will make 1 Christmas card per week. See, he’s been telling me for years that I need to start early in the year with my cards. Well this year I am going to “challenge” myself by telling you all about it and posting my weekly Christmas card here on Sunday!  And I will also take my own advice, that if you make one card, you can make TWO because you already cut into a sheet of cardstock and have all the supplies out…

So I am proud to say, I have my first 2 Christmas cards made. Here it is:

Even though I’ve used a current stamp set this time, I may use some retired ones in the future to give them some attention too. When I do, I will let you know so you don’t try and order that. Cards like that will still give you an idea because you can follow the layout/sketch and use your own sets. Speaking of sketch… below is the sketch I used for inspiration this week:
