Christmas Cards

I am going to start post two Christmas Cards per month on my blog. This way I and you can have 24'sh cards done by Christmas time. I always make about 25 cards each year and they are all the same. I want to do something different this year. But would never have the time at Christmas to make 25'sh different cards. So I am starting early this year. LOL
