thinking about holiday cards

Do you make holiday cards for family and friends? With Thanksgiving a week away, I have to start thinking about making my holiday cards. I don't make all of my cards. I mostly send cards that I have purchased because I have learned that no matter how much I would love to make all of my cards, it's not going to happen. I like to make cards but I am NOT making the same card twice, each has to be different. I am not good at assembly line cards. Then I get about 6 or 8 made and its already like Dec 20th. LOL! I have decided to just make a few when I have time, enjoy making them, and then maybe send a couple and hand deliver a couple. These cards usually go to my creative friends who will appreciate the effort. Then I find some super cute holiday cards with a great sentiment for most of my family. Maybe one day I will be organized enough to make cards for everyone :)

Here is a fun one that I did using the bright and cheerful "Happy Holidays" collection from Echo Park. You can't help but love the cute look of this collection and the bright colors and white really pop when you put it on the Kraft cardstock from Carta Bella.  I also used a really great white cotton looking ribbon from May Arts. I like the crisp look and it's wired too.
