I did a very very very poor job this year of making enough Christmas cards to send to people that are on my Christmas list. SIGH. So sorry, my friends, but life happens--isn't that often the case!? tee hee. I will make a determine effort to do better in 2014...honest!
Anyway, here's a Christmas card that I did manage to finish.
I'm featuring these two adorable images from this year's holiday stamp collection from Magnolia:
Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store, where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini stamps. And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you. Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and Candibeans, along with cutting dies from various companies and other crafting items.
A reminder that if you haven't enter your holiday cards/projects into the month-long Holiday Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog, you still have time. You have until the end of the year, December 31st, 2013. HUGE prizes to be won!!! One entry only, please.
