It's December!!

I can't believe its December already. Where did the year go? I've been busy making Christmas cards for my critique group "Memories to Last". I made 16 of these cards to send to the girls. We are also doing a recipe swap. I sent everyone my Chicken & White Bean Soup recipe. It's delicious!!

I kept the cards on the simple side as I had to make so many. I just printed these images and added some Stickles to the leaves and berries and then tied on the fibers.

Now I must start making cards to send to my family. I actually have 4 made so far. Gee.....I remember the days of just going to the store and buying a box of cards to send!!! I can't bring myself to buy cards anymore. I just love handmade cards.

Thanks for the prayers regarding my Grandpa! That really means a lot! I absolutely LOVE your Christmas cards! I will post mine when it gets closer to Christmas. I have a few poeple that are on my list of receiving them that actually read my blog--so I don't want to ruin their 1st reaction by a photo. :o) I have to make 53 of them--so mine are pretty simple too! I was actually able to talk to my husband into cutting and pasting some things to help out! Gotta love it!! Happy December!!!
