First holiday card for this year

Last year I made over 75 holiday cards and it took all year to get them done.  So I'm starting early and making some each month so I can get them out to the various charities I support in November.

I used the digi papers from this Carta Bella paper pack and a fun snowman from the Silhouette store.
I cut out all the pieces using Silhouette Studio DE software and my Cameo die cutting machine.

I would like to enter my cards in the following challenges:



Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 392 - Plaid (I used plaid paper)




Crafty Catz Challenge 235 - A/G Opt Theme Ladies

Hello, Dee! Good for you for making 75 holiday cards last year! You are awesome! Your snowman card is adorable and way to go for getting started already! That's why I start early too; otherwise I would never get them done. I always enjoy seeing your beautiful cards - thank you for inspiring!

I need to dust off my cameo and print and cut something! What a terrific idea to make holiday cards during the year. I get overwhelmed trying to crank them out at the last minute. You've inspired me! Thanks for sharing your artwork in the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge this week! Wendy DT
