It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas (card time)

I don't need a lot of Christmas cards, but last year I was still making them up to about, oh, December 19th.  So this year I'm trying to get the jump by putting them together in November. What a concept!

One thing that helped me a lot was deciding to let go of perfection (not that I ever achieved it, but still) and also trying to keep it more simple. They are likely going to get tossed fairly quickly so I'm making them accordingly.

So I made several of these cards with the ever-so-cute bird from The Alley Way Stamps' set called All Wrapped Up. The sentiment is from TAWS' Jolly Holiday set. TAWS is going out of business and I'm so very sorry, for them and for myself. I do hope the artist will continue to create images that we can use. Digital would be ok, really.

Now, off to the next design. I have enough holiday cardstock to make hundreds of cards and all I really want to do is mess around with the plain watercolor paper. Go figure.
