Christmas Cuteness

Well winter has finally arrived here and it's the first really chilly morning. BRRRR!
It isn't going to stay this cold but I'm not convinced that Mother Nature is going to be as kind to us as last year. We got REALLY lucky last year and hardly had any snow and it was fairly warm. 
I don't mind the cold as much as the snow. It's pretty to look at but not to shovel....lol

Here are a couple of snowman cards I created using the super cute MFT set called Christmas Cuteness.

Have a Holly Jolly Season

So far this fall I've created dozens of holiday cards to give to friends, family and co-workers. My biggest issue is actually addressing and mailing. Anyone else have that problem? 
Mailing cards is getting so expensive. At least in Canada anyway. All of my cards are typically way more than the average stamp. Usually costs about $2 a card. Not an issue really but it means a trip INTO the post office to have them weighed. No more just throwing a 1.00 stamp on them and going into the mail :(

Here is another card I created using a Freshly Made Sketch #208 from October.
I think this one will be hand delivered ;)

Merry & Bright

Wow!
I bet you thought I gave up blogging. No, I just haven't had a lot of spare time to create.
I do have some cards to share that I've made over the past month or so.

I did have a week of vacation at the beginning of November but that week was spent creating cards for a Christmas card class that I held at work for charity. I forgot what it was like teaching to people that have never picked up a stamp before. Was a very interesting but fun evening. One that I've been asked to do again in the new year. What people don't quite understand is what goes into when prepping for something like that. Whew! I do enjoy it though :)

Here is one of the cards we created. It was one that I made for the Paper Players Colour Challenge and also a SCS CAS challenge. Thought it was simple enough to get them started that night.
