Quick Cards!

Are you keeping up with all the Christmas card-making ? I realized that I have a lot MORE to do. Also with the prompt of the quick card challenge in CREATE blog (see here) , I made these quick ones! Three stamps, distress inks, water spray, gold and silver Stickles and one acrylic block--voila!

I make it all in one layer since I have to mail most of  them out and that extra bulk can really double up the postage!

I took these photos on my deck... and yeah...the white stuff around the cards? SNOW! Well, I guess that's why it's called December :)

These sweet little cards are so fun, V! Love how quick they are to make and the fabulous results! Great idea to take the photo on the deck in the snow! Unfortunately, my deck has snow up to my thighs! So not possible at my house! :)

Fun cards, Virginia! We have a bit more snow on the ground this morning and pretty flurries coming down, too. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....!
