SFYTT - A Merry Little Christmas

I made a couple of simple Christmas cards using Jen's fun sketch for you to try. This is exactly the kind of sketch that will work for me right now. You see, I decided earlier this week to give myself a break and not handmake 150 Christmas cards this year (yes, you read that correctly -- we send out around 150 cards). I ordered photo cards from Shutterfly and am happy how they turned out. I will continue to make cards for my stash (I think I have around 30 now) and send them out with the photo cards, but I've decided that it's ok if everyone doesn't get a handmade card. Phew!!!
