A Collage of Christmas Cards

The other day, I promised to show the variety of photo cards I made. I didn't intend to make 15 variations of our Christmas card, but since I was trying to use up mainly older supplies, it just happened.

I ended up mailing 40 cards. Last year, I sent out 60. I ran out of time and energy to create 60 of them.

I made some cards with "Feliz Navidad", so you'll notice #14. My favorite is still #7. Do you have a favorite?

Hope you have a great day today with the people you love.

My fav is #4, I like the light blue popping out in the back, so a handsome lil boy! hee! I only made about 15-20 cards to send out, thank goodness I don't know so many people, haha.

Merry Xmas

So stinkin' cute! I love all of them! That grid would make a great layout! I think my fav is #12, I like the blue snowflake. I didn't make as many cards this year either, too many other projects going on! Merry Christmas!

Anthonette, you did such a great job on all of them, and I noticed you used your favorite stamp (medallion) on quite a few of them! Love that stamp used as a background. #7 is definitely awesome! =)
