A Few More Christmas Cards

Christmas is fast approaching and I find myself wondering how I will get it all done! A Chrismas party this Sat. at my house for my hubby's staff (and of course the house needs cleaned!), presents to buy and wrap, a ham to get for Christmas dinner, cookies to bake.... the list goes on. Just feeling a little stressed. So what do I do? Make cards, of course!

The first one is for The Shabby Tea Room. Their theme was Sweet Christmas, using red and white gingham and/or gingerbread. I loved Lesley Croghan's use of the doily, so I used it in mine. Hope you don't mind!

Here is another card I made.

This one is for Word Art Wednesday. I love the verse they are using. I have to admit that I was humming this verse from Messiah as I made the card. There is a great flashmob doing this in a food court here. If you get a chance, watch it. It makes me cry everytime I see it! I'm also entering this in the Flourishes and Twist of Faith challenges.

I hope to have some more time this season to create, but if I don't make it back until after Christmas, I hope you have a Very Blessed Christmas!
