Christmas Card Prep

I've started making Christmas cards.  I prefer making them to buying them.

Today I finished a batch of 15 cards.

This one was the proto type.  I didn't like the real red bow so found something closer to the color of the bird to use.

I used two punches for the wreath and stamped and punched the bird.

I have card bases for 15 more of these but will have to use other designer papers since I ran out of what I used for these.

I know its early to be doing this but we are heading to Barcelona Oct 1 for two weeks which is prime card making time.  In fact I'll be missing a cardmaking session at my friend's house and here at Vantage House while I'm away.
