Here is my card set.  So this is 5 cards total this month so far?  I still havenít finished coloring all the images for my other set of 4 cards I am working on. I want to do them next. I got held up trying to figure out how to color a brick fireplace.

I saw a similar heat embossed card someplace, although it wasnít a Christmas card. I cannot find that card now to show you.  These were not difficult and I am happy how they turned out.  I really like this snowflake stamp.

I have all the little pieces colored and die cut now!  Yay!  I need a break before putting cards together.

Heidi, Nora, and Connie, you guys are the best.  I love your cards!

We still have a couple more days.  It doesn't look like I'm making any Christmas cards this month.  I did make a couple of birthday cards, and I need to make more for next month.  It looks like another year with me madly trying to make Christmas cards in November.  I hope not.  You've given me some good ideas and some to CASE.  Thank you.


Yes, Heidi, you have five so far this month!

Well I didnít get much done today but I did lay out all the cards with the patterned paper I want for the backgrounds.  I think I will have time tomorrow to finish them. 

Daria, even if you donít finish them maybe you can get some next month.  The card set I posted really didnít take long once I had them heat embossed.  I would be happy for you to CASE those, if you want!

I enjoy the extra push in July to get some done!  So thank you for hosting!

Four more done.  I used Michael Strong tree stamped and embossed.  I used emb folder on two and pp on the other and of course glitter cardstock.
The snowmen is a piece of pp, with die cut and punches.  I have been trying to figure out how I could use that piece for some time, and today it just went together.

Finally!  1 Christmas card finished! 

Best Christmas Ever

I used April's Creative Challenge technique of stamping and watercoloring.  I like it, but I don't think I could mass produce.  I used a pretty old stamp set that I haven't used very much, so I'm glad I was able to ink it up.  It had the solid stamp designs I needed.

Still holding on to hope that I will get a few more cards made this month ...

This came together because I was playing with a die set.i cut the pieces out and put them together and liked it.
I had one more image that I had done for a different card and didnít use.  Put together and die cut words that would fit twice and stacked.  It doesnít have glitter cardstock, but a litter glitter shows in the cracks of the background.

I donít think I will have time to  make more this month!

Yankee, you've done great this month!  Puts me to shame.
I'm so glad you were able to play.

Here are my 4 cards that are months in the making! I think I bought the little stocking embellishments in late winter, then I stamped the images in early April and finally finished them today!

Set of 4 since they werenít exactly the same. http://www.duhnproductions.com/Pics/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=0&pid=5111#top_display_media

Yay! I am happy to have 9 done.
