Getting Ready for Christmas Next Year

I never get a good start on Christmas cards. Why? Because I can't get into the Christmas "spirit" until it's the Christmas season. Since I'm trying to use up some Christmas images I have, I'm getting a start on next year's cards now!

Another image from Stamping Vacation's December sponsor, Cardmadfairy.

Whoa, boy, I messed up the oval placement on the scalloped oval but couldn't remove it without damaging the image... So I did what any cardmaker who was too lazy to redo the whole thing would do... I covered it up! The 2 bows don't actually look too bad in real life...

Not too happy about the coloring either. Difficult to color around the snowmen on the snowsuit...

Another cute card Dana! I've learned to test place the pieces before putting adhesive on and attaching them together.

I swear I did! Didn't make a difference once I'd put the adhesive one... :(
