I am very very pleased to report that I have made a total of 60 Christmas cards.... I might be done, although I might also make another 10 just in case. I like to have extras on hand. I have made a lot of different designs this year and I chose 6 that I really liked and made 10 of each of them. I spent yesterday afternoon finishing them off.
The best part of doing it this way is that I was able to spend more time on the cards. Instead of 60 simple design cards, I made a few designs that were simple and a few that required more work (lots of colouring).
I might make another 10 of a new design to send to those people who read my Blog so that they don't get something they've already seen.
The card today is a little "different" for me... not really my Christmas style this year. More traditional and grown-up than the others I have made.
I saw this set in The Angel Company catalogue and I had to have it. The swirls were so beautiful and the images all so elegant. Not sure what else I will do with the set yet.... will have to do some more playing.

So, now the question... when do I stop making Christmas Cards? As I've said before, Christmas is my favourite "reason" to make cards. I think I still have a few Christmas ideas left in me... not to mention a bunch of stamps that have never seen ink, patterned papers that have never been cut, and embellishments that are begging to be used!
