Christmas cards using New and Retired Stampin' Up! sets

WOW, it has been over 3 months since I posted on here, you all were probably wondering where I have been????

Wonder no more.    I have been working on this post for a month, then today I started searching for it, and couldn't find it.   I looked on blogger --- no drafts, I looked on my iPad in blogger, no drafts, nothing in notes either.   I checked my email to see if I started something there and NOPE...it's not there either.

I am going to give you the quick version...Just after my last post, we had a Baby Shower in Maryland for my youngest daughter, she was due Nov 12th.    Well, you know how babies will come when they are ready???   She arrived October 16th, via C section, weighing 4 lbs, 15 oz.   She is doing fine at 9 lbs!!!   Here she is, just before Christmas!




We have been up and down 95 so many times this year, our vehicles could probably ride without us, knowing which exits to get off for fuel...food and the restrooms!

I managed to make all of my Christmas cards and get them addressed and in the mail 10 days before Christmas!!!   Like a first!   Even though they were mailed on time, I felt so rushed getting them done, that I was missing the FUN in making them (until the very end, when I said, SO WHAT).   The last 10-12 were actually fun and a goal I have set for myself this coming year, to make 8 Christmas cards each month.....That way, when November rolls around, I can concentrate on making some fun gifts. 

Did you get your cards made and in the mail before the big day?   If not, I am sure you are not alone, if you want to be ready next year, start next week.   Write a list of names you would like to send cards to, divide that amount by 10 months (so you can relax! Ha! November and December).   Who wants to try it?   Let me know, email me, or leave a comment here and I will try and keep you motivated this year.  Let's do this together!

Over the next few days I will post some of my Christmas Cards.   and beginning Jan 1, I will share some cards made with the new items I have in my possession from the Occasions Catalog and Sale a Bration catalog......If you don't own a catalog and would like one, contact me and I will send one out to you.

Check out some of the items that are on sale for the weekly deals, clearance rack and Year end Sale, all on my website.


This card used a retired set from last year.      


These are some treats I made and have been handing out over the Christmas shopping days! They hold 2 Andes mint candies.  I only have just a few left to hand out and I made 25.  I have enjoyed handing them out and I plan on making them next year -  earlier.
