Yep. I'm all over this.

Every year, I try to make Christmas-themed, single-panel thank-you note cards for me and the boys. The first batch of them looks like this:

I added the little berry stamp to the envelope return-address corner just for fun.

What are you working on right now? Please share so I can live vicariously through you. Crafting time is still so limited right now!!!!

stamps: Papertrey
ink: Hero Arts
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: envelopes


  1. I am knitting some baby blankets right now, we have a couple of baby girls on the way in our extended family.

  2. Right now I'm so short on time I think this year's lack of Christmas cards from me will be from lack of cards instead of the usual lack of organisation. :-( I'm working on getting through the next few weeks of work, ballet concerts, water polo finals, and Christmas "things" and hoping to survive to have a few days of holiday in the new year. ;-) I love your card, Susan. Beautiful with all that white space.

  3. I've finished up my handmade Christmas cards for friends and family (I only send out 30-ish cards). So now I'm playing with tags. I love going crazy on little tags. Can't wait to wrap the gifts, since I got some amazing paper called Fa-la-la-la-llama from Paper Source. My grandkids will love it!

    1. Ooops! Forgot to say that I love your beautiful thank you notes. I can add those to my list since I'm down with a cold and have lots of time on my hands.

  4. I'm sorry you are still having to be the adult all the time. Hopefully, things will improve. love the holiday thank yous!

  5. It's tough being an adult during the holidays. I want my Mama during the holidays; so that she can bake, shop, wrap and decorate. It's easier now that we are all ahem "older"; but Christmas can still be pretty crazy.

    I am working on packing up my craft room for the big move. Five miles north and it feels like it's states away. Unless you are moving right next door; everything still has to go in a box. Sigh.

    I have packed some of my crafty goodness that was stored in cabinets And moved some of that cabinet content to my crafting table. (8' long and worth every inch) I have left out my card making stuff so far. (Although hubby is itching to get it all into boxes. The move is at least a month away.) My stamps, inks, paper and my much prized embossing machine are still being used.

    I am working on cards for a raffle basket for our big FFB Funraiser in February. I was also very silly and volunteered to cut and stamp card fronts for a "coloring" table at the event. And of course that means have card bases and envelopes ready for that.

    The event is February 6th; and I didn't know we were moving when I volunteered. So, it all needs to get done; ummm, NOW. Then I can pack it all away and make hubby very happy.

    Things are a bit easier because I am not decorating a thing for Christmas. It makes me a bit sad; but we are going to be UP north anyway. My little ceramic tree with have to do.....


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
