I love receiving handmade cards and of course giving them!  I put all the handmade cards on the mantle to enjoy all season.  The store bought cards go in my card holder that hangs on the closet door.  They are loved too, but what can I say…I’m a little biased toward the handmade ones…lol.

I got a dozen handmade ones this year.  So, I took photos so you can see.  Not all of them are Stampin’ Up!, but all of them are beautiful!  Here’s the first group of six.

Here’s the second group of six.

My husband saw me putting them back on the mantle after photographing them and said why are you putting them back (he thought I was cleaning them up).  Well, that’s a silly question…It’s not January 2nd yet, and I’m not done enjoying them.  Receiving handmade cards leading up to Christmas is exciting for me…I can’t wait to see what my friends have designed.

I’ve been taking it easy over Christmas, but It’s time to get back to designing projects with all the new catalog products.  Especially my favorite two suite collections.  The Perennial Lavender suite collection is first since I’m planning a few classes with that one.

Happy Stampin’
