Today is January 25th

Do you know what that means? YES - only 11 months until Christmas! This is my first installment of my 2010 Christmas Cards (I made 2 of each design) :

Birdie Greetings:

That neat ribbon behind the bird is from May Arts and it was originally pink - I sprayed it with some Tattered Angels mist to make it match the card.

Very Merry Reindeer:

Love that little rusty snowflake! This Colorbox paper has been in my stash for a few years (actually since 2006) - I had to dust it off so that I could use it!

Here's a KAT Christmas fact for you - I love shopping for Christmas stuff after the holidays - getting decorations and crafty goodness for 50 to 75% off it's original price. I haven't paid full price for Christmas wrapping paper in 20 years. Today I was organizing my wrapping paper and I discovered that I have FORTY SEVEN, yes 47, rolls of Holiday paper - WHAT WAS I THINKING?

It's 11 months until Christmas have you started your holiday cards yet?

Thanks for the visit!
