The Start Of My Christmas Bonanza

This is a long time coming and I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to share my Christmas cards with you.  Every year I make and personally hand out all my Christmas cards.  This is just the start of the many, many cards I made.  In total, I made 75 cards!  Just to give you a little idea of what it took to do that, I started making these in September.   I really had to step it up in December to get them all done which is part of the reason I was not posting often.  I duplicated some of the styles but never more than 6 of one type – I tried to keep it to 4.  In this post, I will share just a few of the many I’ve made.  Stay posted for more.

The “Merry Christmas” in the above photo was hand printed by me.  I’ve still got a lot to learn but thought this was a half decent first attempt at adding my own hand printed sentiment to a card.

The sentiment in the above photo is one of my featured freebies offered in December.

Stay posted to see more of my Christmas Bonanza cards.
