Cards all made and sent. Packages all wrapped and under the tree!

It has been a very busy past couple of months!
I made over 60 regular Christmas cards and fourteen sets of gift cards.
I made 10 sets of 10 cards and envelopes for a dear friend.  I will not be doing that ever again.
Not nearly enough time in the day for all that and a full time job!
I am ready for Christmas now.  The tree is finally up and the gifts are all wrapped. All of the packages sent to relatives far away. Christmas cards all got send last week as well.
I also made some of these Christmas Potpourris for my sisters and brother and a couple of friends.

Then of course I had to make my Chex mix.  I make it every year at Christmas. I gift it to our next door neighbor Joe.  He like to snack on it while watching the Red Skins get beat...oh I mean play football!  LOL!
We had our Christmas party with one of my son's family last weekend.  Lots of food and fun!

I am off to the next project and wrapping gifts for my Granddaughter Annabella's birthday on the 7th of Jan. 

I hope all of you have a very Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Look who has been busy in the craft room!

                                         Gift set of 8 cards and envelopes for Christmas.

                                          Another gift set made with Me and My Big Ideas.

                                          Only had one package of Me and My Big Ideas
                                          "Cards in an instant" I can not remember where I
                                           picked these up at,  but I will be looking for more
                                           of them!

                                          Just a few of the cards for family, friends and co-workers.
                                          So much fun in the craft room!

                                          Special gift set for my Mother.  I usually do not color anything.
                                          the little fox was part of a gift set I received when I purchased a
                                          Craft Card making magazine. The other stamp is from a destash box 
                                          I ordered. I just combined them on an acrylic block and stamped on a
                                          piece of bright white card stock. ( I did the same with the inside,combining
                                          two stamps.) I had some Crayola colored penciled that I purchased for our
                                          grand children and I just took the orange, red and green and colored. It took longer but it was done for a wonderful woman. I put on some little dots of red color on the berries and applied the inside and added the washy tape on the top.
