So are you thinking what I'm thinking? I've really gotta change this wallpaper.
Well I'm sure Christmas is buzzing all around you. I am so sorry to have neglected this blog. I've been working on several things to share with you. One of them is my Christmas cards. I created these homey little cards with all CTMH products. I really wanted something unique to send.

I made about 26 cards with a photo insert. Each card was a little different. I sent these to the people I think would appreciate it and not instantly gag at another photo card. ( I personally love getting the photo cards. It's so personal)
This is the cover, without the top ribbon, for last year's cookie recipe swap with Tina Sutton. I changed my up a bit, but I think it's totally fun.

I pray the Christmas spirit fills your heart today and throughout the new year. God Bless You and Yours!
