it's beginning to look a lot like christmas

It is starting to feel like Christmas in our home.  Boxes of Christmas decors and tree ornaments have been taken out of storage. The tree has been partially decorated. 50% of the gifts has been wrapped (with holiday music playing in the background). And all our overseas holiday cards have been sent out.  I hope to get the house ready for the holidays by this weekend.  My DD now has a lot to say on how the tree is to be decorated (not sure if that is a good or bad thing, lol).  So we will see if we can come to an agreement before this weekend is over.

Here is one of the Christmas cards I made for this year from one of my new favourite holiday sets from Papertrey, Bells and Boughs.  This was a set released last year and I was a little late getting in the bandwagon.   I bought it last spring after seeing so many wonderful cards created with it.  I bought it with the intention of creating Christmas cards throughout the year.  But life happens so here I am, almost at the end of the year, and still having a mild panic attack on the number of cards I still need to make. I guess I know what one of my resolutions is for next year...

And because cards look better in multiples, here's the rest of them...

Thanks for stopping by!  Is Friday here yet? 


  1. Love the Bells & Boughs Irma. You will have fun with Frances overseeing the decorating of the tree this weekend, will you not? *wink*wink*

  2. Great set of cards, Irma. The Bells and Boughs stamp makes such a pretty and festive card.

  3. Super card for mass producing ~ love your results. No, I don't need another Christmas stamp…but this one could be used year round, right? You are an enabler, Irma!

  4. i know all about the best intentions (making cards thru-out the year LOL) - and such a pretty stamp set - i've got so many holiday stamps but i keep looking at this one! You've made such lovely cards with it :-)

  5. Very pretty CAS card. Great colors. Isn't it nice when you can create a card that is easy to mass produce.
