Christmas in September??




I hope that everyone got the opportunity to check out all of the fabulous "Christmas Card Ideas" that the ABC Toys & Craft's Design Team featured this week. If not,
I'm sure they would all love to hear your feedback.

As card makers I 'm sure I'm not alone in making Christmas Cards YEAR ROUND?? Out of all the Holidays, Christmas is probably the one that most of us have in the back of our minds YEAR ROUND? Sure we send cards for Valentine's Day, Halloween and everything in between, however CHRISTMAS is the "BIGGIE", the ONE that we send out cards to EVERYONE. Am I right?? Uh huh, that's what I thought, therefore, we NEED STAMPS that will make that process capable of MASS PRODUCTION (we all know that is not my forte'). For that reason, I love the Crafty Secrets "VINTAGE CHRISTMAS" stamp set. The only coloring that I did was touching my main image lightly with a little chalk. Pair these images with a couple Nestabilities and you have a card that is Simple and Quick.

Here is a close up so you can see

The inside was completed by stamping two more images from "VINTAGE CHRISTMAS"
SERIOUSLY,,,,,,,, Does it get any more SIMPLE??
