Christmas Postage

So, I go from fall projects straight to Christmas... what a jump, huh?! The next two projects were projects that I worked on last week. I meant these for later on and planned to do more autumn projects for posting, but something big came up that we had to take care of on Thursday and then on Friday we left for Chicago to see our daughter's coaches up there for training over the weekend. I hope you don't mind seeing Christmas projects so early :-).

I used three stamp sets: Seasonal Sentiments (retired) Winter Post (main catalog) and Dear Santa (from the Holiday Mini). I also used the fairly new Postage Stamp punch and my favorite snow flakes of all- Northern Frost. The Cherry Cobbler Postage Stamp punch adds a little 'punch' to the color scheme :-). 

It is about time to be working on those Christmas cards and you can see that I have started on mine ;-). Hopefully, I will have them all done by Thanksgiving so all I have to do is stick a postage stamp on them and drop them in the mailbox! Have a wonderful day today and thanks for stopping by!

Great card. I agree...the pop of red is a perfect touch. I have Northern Frost slated for my next order...I keep seeing such cute things made with it! TFS!
