Every Day is a Holiday

No, seriously, every day is a holiday.  Look it up. Almost every day there is some sort of holiday or event happening.  I mean, sure it might be weird like "Celebrate Your Lack of Big Toe Day," but there is a holiday every day.
But on to more mainstream holidays, I have some Christmas cards to share to remind you about the Every Day is a Holiday event happening over at my A Muse Studio website.  We are having a 40% off sale on select holiday stamps (18 sets) and a couple of dies to get you in the holiday card making mood.
This is one of the sets that is on sale. I'm sad that it is going away because it has 4 greetings in this wonderful font, three bird silhouettes and this leafy branch die.  I like that the leafy branch isn't overly leafy so it gives you the feel of winter and isn't too busy to be used as a background stamp.
Once I got it out to play I couldn't stop myself and made a second card with it changing up the color scheme a little bit.  Below is another stamp set that is on the sale page.  I made a bunch of Christmas cards with it last year.  It has 4 of these swirly winged angels and 3 sayings.  It looks great with glitter accents.  I sprayed the main image with shimmery Stardust spray but you can't tell it from my photo.
Not all the stamp sets on sale are Christmas related.  About half of them are Halloween sets, there is a disco ball New Year's set and a Valentine's set featuring a city skyline as well. Comment on this post and tell me if you have started and/or finished your holiday cards yet this year and I'll enter you into a drawing for roll of cherry red chevron ribbon, great for Christmas card making.

I'll start first--I have not made a single Halloween or Thanksgiving card but I do have about 30 Christmas cards already made thanks to holiday-themed blog challenges.  You have until August 31 to comment.

Gorgeous Christmas cards, PJ! I love the design! I need to make a few more christmas cards this month. Didn't manage rudolf day last month! That Ribbon would look great with some gingerbread men!

These are so pretty, and The 2 variations on the bird cards are fun! The angel with that vivid red ribbon looks pretty too!
I have about 50 Christmas cards done - maybe half of what I plan to finish :)

Great cards - that is a very nice christmas sentiment. At last count 60 crimbo cards done and dusted. We don't go in much for Halloween or Thanksgiving here in the UK or I wouldn't be so smug. Cindy x

Great csrds, as I live in the UK we don't celebrate Halloween or Thanksgiving (we were in Florida last year for Thanksgiving-oh my, whst an eye opener that was) but I have started my christmas cards-made 2!!!

I don't do Halloween or Thanksgiving cards since they sit around all year if they don't sell. And I don't send them. Pffth. Me, SEND cards?! So not.

I have about 25 Christmas cards done from challenges. I might just send them this year instead of designing one of my own.
