I love snowmen and this sleigh with the
 adorable vinyl guy is so adorable!
What a great gift or  holiday decoration this
would make. The blue scarf and hat
pop off the red sled. Those beautiful
snowflakes are the perfect addition for
balance and fun.

Think about it Thursday

For your holiday cards do you mass produce one card
or make a bunch of different cards?

I usually end up doing a combination
I make a variety of cards and if I need more
I pick a simple design to mass produce so I will have
enough.....

Wow where to begin on this card, so many wonderful elements.
I love the vintage feel the papers and the doily, tickets and stitching
lend to the overall design. The buttons and Santa hat with
the holly berries give the perfect pop of Christmas
red and green! I sure the lucky person that
receives this card will treasure it. I know I would.

Think about it Thursday

Do you post every card you make
or only the ones you like or love?
In the beginning days of my blog I posted almost
every card.
Put now I am much more critical of my own work
and only post the cards
I like.
