So much to do . . .

 . . . so little time!  

Hello Friends!
I was beginning to panic because I didn't have enough holiday cards made yet for family and friends so last evening I decided upon a design and today (when I should have been cleaning/decorating for next weeks annual Christmas party), I buckled down and got them ALL DONE!  Whew!  Forty-eight in all.


 Four images ... 12 cards using each image.
I've used various background designer papers and snowflake die cuts.
 Nuvo crystal drops were used on each card as an extra dimensional element.
 




 


Now tomorrow when I'm watching Steeler football I can get the envelopes addressed and they will go postal on Monday!  Whew!  Then I can check that this one off the list and concentrate on the party.  
  
Hubby has the menu well in hand ... doing some shopping tomorrow then the remainder on Wednesday.  Needless to say we will once again be making WAY TOO MUCH food but he hates to run the risk of running out of anything LOL!  He even made himself a list after last years party stating 'CUT BACK ON THE AMOUNT OF FOOD' but from what I just saw on the table, his list is just as long as past years!  OH WELL ... that's okay ... everyone likes taking left overs home with them ... guess I'd better put 'take out containers' on my shopping list.
