Pieces of Christmas Cards Danced in Her Head

Tonight I started on my Christmas cards finally.  I usually try to start earlier than this, but this year is better than last year.  I hadn't gotten any finished before December last year and scrambled to get a few out to family and friends before I caved and used store-bought cards (eeek).  I know, I know ... they really aren't that bad, but when you have a reputation of making your own, people just expect to get a handmade one, right?!

Well, I had purchased the Christmas ornament dies from Stampin Up about a month ago, and just recently found the smaller ones from Die-Namics at MFT's site, so I thought I would crank out a few this evening to see how they looked.  I think my favorite ones are really the ones dry embossed with Petals a Plenty and then inked with white craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder, but I truly enjoyed making them all.  :)

So leave me a comment letting me know what you think so far, and while you are here, check out the post below for a chance to win your very own My Memories Suite software for FREE!  One lucky winner will be drawn next weekend.   Good luck!
