Christmas is barely in the past and my crafting friends are already talking about Christmas cards for next year. Mostly it is because they had regrets over this year (didn't make any, didn't make enough, was too rushed to enjoy it, etc.) and want to do better next year.
There are blog challenges that run all year long and are Christmas themed so you can follow along and then have a pile of cards by the end of the year, there are personal resolutions and goals to make X amount each week or each month, and there are groups of friends who are challenging each other to different things to get cards created throughout the year.
Meanwhile, there has been this leftover piece of red and green designer paper that got abandoned on my desk. It wasn't big enough for a whole card background and it had already been left out of the Christmas paper bin. I felt bad for it as it was probably destined for the trash, but then I got motivated and decided to show up all those talkers with action and I made a Christmas card for 2014.
Read it and weep.
The Fine Print: I'm going to link up with Di's Playground for Snippets since that is what inspired this card. The stamp is by Stampin' Up "Greeting Card Kids," pre-made card base by DCWV, dies by Spellbinders. One down, only 79 more to go!
