Christmas Cards

Well, only one week till the official kick-off to Christmas. I can't help but start planning for it now. The last two weeks have been kinda crazy. I feel like I have been so busy but I can't seem to recall anything I have done. I have a feeling it is only going to get worse over the next month. However, one thing I do recall is going to a super fun card class last week. My friend and neighbor Stephanie was the creator and teacher for a Christmas card class. She is so incredibly creative and brilliant. The class took about 3 hours but I came away with 10 awesome cards. I can't even imagine how much time Steph took creating them, cutting all the paper, and putting them all together. All who know me know I am fairly simple, not a lot of fru-fru. So I have chosen three of the simpler cards from the class to mass produce for my local give-aways. (sorry to all y'all that I have to mail a card too, you'll just be getting the typical photo postcard and letter) So, here are photos of the three I chose and I would love any input you might have on which one you like the best and why. Like I said, they are all sooo cute but I'm kinda lazy (busy) so I only want to mass-produce a simpler one. I don't really want to have to go to the store to buy a bunch of embellishments either so I'm trying to just stick to paper, ribbon and a stamp. Lucky for me Stephanie gave me many great cards to choose from. Thanks Steph, for all your time and effort!!!

love all the cards and I'm so sad I forgot about the class...I was trying to decide which one I liked the best and why but I couldn't concentrate cuz I was so busy trying to remember the dance steps to the Crazy Frog song that was playing while I was reading your blog-anyways, I have obviously been out of dance way too long to have success with that task so I'm gonna have to leave you with no help in your mass Christmas card delimma-

Wow...that was way too kind! I had so much fun- and I'm so glad it's over too. I can't wait to mass produce my own too! And since I still have all the stuff to make these, you'll have to call me anyway! We'll play! (And Kyndi can come too!)

I would have to say I like the snowman card the best. I can't put a finger on why it's simple and apealing to the eye. Can't wait for my card. Miss you

You are so "crafty". I love the snowman. It's so cute and I love the snow. That's why I love UTAH!!!

We now have a card making RS Enrichment Activity and I love it!
Of course we come home with cute cards to send out to our friends, IF we can bear to part with the card, but best of all I love the friendship. To laugh and giggle, to share joys and heartaches, to strengthen one another while we also let go of the world for a few hours has been my favorite part! Thanks for sharing pics of your cards, now we have some new ideas!
