In the Pink for the Holiday Stash

I am still working very hard to get my holiday cards done. In this group I seemed to be in a pink and simple mood. All images are by Penny Black. Some sentiments are by There She Goes.

I really must try next year to make flatter cards for the holidays. I just sent out Thanksgiving cards recently and almost all of them needed lots of extra postage. At Thanksgiving I don't mind as much as I send fewer cards out. For Christmas, however, I think I will go broke this year as many of my cards have many layers, brads, buttons, and bows.

I am hoping that this is the start of a fabulous week for all of you. It will be a busy one for most of you, I am sure, but be sure to slow down and take a deep breath......and enjoy your friends and family.

I still have some chores to take care of during this holiday week. I need to hang around tomorrow for the furnace guys who will do the annual cleaning. Will also get a bit of swimming in whenever possible. AND....of course, I have holiday cards that still need to be made. Now we won't even talk about shopping or baking or wrapping or decorating.......lol!!!!!

Have a fabulous day!!!!

I love all the pink colors on these adorable little cards!! Who knew pink could make such fantastic Christmas cards!? I hear you on the Xtra postage woes! I made most of my cards C&S this year, the embellished ones will be hand-delivered rather than mailed!
