Xmas cards galore

I hope everyone had an amazing time at the Spa Hop yesterday and big congrats to all the winners! :)

I mentioned a couple days ago that things have been crazy for me recently and this week is going to be another busy one. It's been so busy in fact, that I didn't have a card made for today... gasp! So I wracked my brain for something to post and then it came to me, my Christmas card class I'll be teaching this Wednesday. They may be a bit different from the cute, character based cards that I normally create but I guess it's not a bad thing to share with you all some of the other kinds of cards I do make.

Ok, so it's hi ho, hi ho, off to work I go... see you tomorrow with a fun fairy card that I've just been itching to put together. :)

I love the diversity you've shown with each card......they are toooo cute. I also decided to make only a few of each different design for Chrissy - I get bored with the same card format over and over again!! Easy, yes....challenging, not!!
Of course the fam and my bestie's will all get individual cards as they're likely to compare!! :)
