My cards...

I did these 10 simple Christmas cards for a challenge on the Fiskateers board. The challenge was to get a MAJOR head-start on Christmas card making for THIS year, LOL and make FAST, simple cards.
These aren't my best work, obviously but, each took about 5-10 minutes to think up and create (with the exception of the 4th one down). So, pretty simple.
It will be SO nice to already have ten cards done come November, LOL.

This one took alot more time than the others. I love it :)

The ornament on this card was made by someone else. I got in the November M2R kit. All I did was add the brad and the floss. I believe it was made by Paddymack (Shannon). She's very talented and I love her handwriting :)

****************** Also, on a sad note, my Aunt Peggy died yesterday (my dad's side). She died of lung Cancer. She's the second person I've personally known to die from cigarette smoking in the past seven months. I'm sure most of you scrappers don't smoke but if you do, please consider quitting. Do it for your kids, your grandkids. Do it for yourself.
And I'm not trying to be all high and mighty. I smoked for 16 years. I quit cold turkey right before I got pregnant with Caleb.
Trust me, If I can do it, you can do it. I have horrible horrible will power!
Email me if you need support :)
