Stamped Christmas Cards in Reds and Greens...

Good Day,  It has been a while since my last post and I have a lot to share.  It has been so busy here, I feel like I don't know if I am coming or going.  

These are the first Christmas cards I have made for Christmas 2012.  I received a large box of rubber stamps from my mother just before Christmas.  Before she became ill, she had quite a collection of stamps.  She ran a home business making and selling stamps.  So not only were there mounted stamps in the box, she sent a ton of unmounted stamps from all occasions.  I am planning on sorting through them, making sets, and selling them.

I am really happy with the way these cards came out.  They are some of my favorite Christmas cards I have made.  I just love the deep greens and reds in the papers.

These three cards will be presented for the ABC Christmas Challenge - "A" Anything for Christmas.  Be sure to check out their blog if you like challenges.  The best part, by the time Christmas rolls around, you should be more than ready to send your Christmas cards to family and friends.
