My 2010 Christmas cards
Good evening all,I am sorry more Christmas cards,but if I am going to get them all made before Christmas I need to start now.I usually need around 125 cards and I don't want to be stressed this year getting them finished,so I am going to try and do 5 cards every fortnight.So if you want to join me then please do and leave a link in the comments so I can see your cards,simple is best and do 5 cards either all the same or all different.......your choice.If you have trouble getting your Christmas cards done every year like I do, then this is the way to go.This image is a free Dustin pike image and you can see his digi store here, my daughter originally asked me to print these so she could make Christmas cards for the boys in her class and I printed snowmen for the girls.Well, she didn't end up making them so I am using these images so they don't sit on my desk for a year.I will be keeping my bulk Christmas cards simple and am only going to make them in lots of 5,so I don't get bored....lol....Thanks for stopping by and for the encouraging comments you all leave.

This is a good Idea, Although I managed all mine, I like Christmas at Christmas. Looking forward to spring now and some sun and all the new plants (you don't have to worry about this though summer in Oz isn't it.

Also love your LO this is one of my 'Have to do more of' this year scrapping I love it and I really would love to get more of my 12 x 12 done of my Grand son

Have a wonderful happy healthy New Year it's great making new friend ships

Great cards. I have a couple of these already printed out. I just haven't been able to think how to use them on my cards. I might have to join you in this endeaver (sp) so I am not rushing at the last minute to get them done, and I might even be able to get the ones I want done for OWH.

Cheryl said...

Hi Cheryl,
What a brilliant idea. I had intended to start early myself but I am not in the mood for Christmas cards at the minute so I may join you later. These are first class.

Do not feel sorry for showing more Christmas cards Cheryl. I'm in the same boat. I think it's a marvellous idea and that's what is appearing on my blog too for a little while. lol

Well to think you were so far behind in 2009 and look at you now, steaming ahead in 2010. Looks like 2010 will be an organised and well prepared year for you Cheryl.
I only need 40 so maybe I could do 1 to your 5? Love these ones you've started and your bows look great. I've seen this Dunstin Pike image and he looks great coloured! Well done.

Cheryl i love that image, I may have to go and search the freebies of Dustin.
The papers you used are lovely, i know you are saying these are simple but they look fantastic.
Your xmas this year is going to be "stress free" in terms of xmas cards!
Well done!

Lynda said...

Brilliant idea Cheryl...and looks as tho u have started a revolution with the idea!!! The cards are too cute-to-boot. I have bookmarked the digi image place....as I haven't used one as yet...but nice to know I have a place to start. So ta for that. The colouring is (again)awesome. I have to build my stash cards first...but may join you on the Chrissy card roundabout soon. ooxx
